2017 FEA Annual Conference Submission Instructions

Paper Submission Form

Workshop/Panel Submission Form

Submission Deadline

May 1st, 2017 Revised to June 1st, 2017


In order to allow more people to participate, we are moving the deadline to June 1st. 

Submissions to the 2017 Conference are done electronically. For paper submissions, you may submit either an abstract or a completed paper or case. Neither form offers a greater chance of making the program. With abstracts take care to adequately describe what you are proposing to present. Abstracts that are too brief or without substance make it difficult for the program committee to assess the appropriateness or fit of the proposal.

NOTE:  This year, in order to be considered for acceptance

all submission forms MUST be in MS Word format

(either *.doc or *.docx). 

Submission Instructions

For Workshop and Panel Discussion Proposals: Simply email a one or two page description of your proposed workshop or panel discussion including possible participants, as best you might know at time of submission - also include the copy of the completed Workshop/Panel Form found on the website. In the subject box of your email submission, please put "FEA-ABE Conference Workshop Proposal."

For Paper and Case Presentations: Attach your Abstract/Paper proposal in MS Word format (*.doc or *.docx) to an email.  No other formats will be reviewed, accepted or returned.

To be considered, there must be a separate title page that contains the following:

     a) Author names/affiliations and email addresses for every author;
     b) Note who the contact author is;
     c) Note whether the paper is pedagogy, educational research, or a case;
     d) Disciplines of Interest: provide any, and all, disciplines you believe might have an interest in your
         presentation (for example, all disciplines, accounting, economics, finance, information technology,
         international, management, marketing, operations management, or any combination of these);

In the subject box of your email, put "FEA-ABE Conference Presentation Proposal"

Email your proposal along with a copy of the completed Paper Submission Form found on the website (in MS Word format) to 2017conf@temple.edu

Frequently Asked Questions

(1) What is the submission deadline and when will I know if my submission is accepted? Answer: All paper presentation and workshop/panel discussion proposals must be submitted by May 1st June 1st. Submitters will be notified by email whether their proposal has been accepted, hopefully by the middle of June July 1st.  Please send your submissions as soon as you can.

(2) Can a submission be done electronically? Answer:  Due to popular demand, we only take them electronically.

(3) Should I submit an entire paper or just an abstract? Answer: You can submit either. The only rumored advantage to submitting a completed paper is that it provides more information for the program committee to make its decision on possible inclusion on the program. Bottom line: if you have a completed paper, please submit it, but otherwise an abstract is fine. Workshop/Panel Discussion proposals would normally only be abstracts, since such presentations generally do not result in a "completed paper."

(4) Does a completed paper eventually have to be submitted to the program committee? Answer: No, but you will be asked to send a copy of your presentation to the chair and other participants of your session to help encourage discussion during the session.  Ideally, you should have the finished paper ready no fewer than 3 weeks before the conference. You are also encouraged to bring copies of your completed paper with you for distribution to interested session attendees.

(5) How long should the abstract be? Answer: The suggested length is 1-2 pages, but that is only a suggestion. Obviously, there is no maximum, since we allow submission of completed papers. So we certainly wouldn't limit the length of abstract submissions. The 1-2 pages is suggested only as a minimum. Generally speaking, an abstract much shorter than one page would likely not have enough information on what is being proposed, and how it will be accomplished, for the program committee to make a sound judgment on the appropriateness of the submission or to be encouraged that the proposal is likely to be completed.

(6) What happens if I submit a proposal in a format other than MS Word? Answer:  The proposal will not be considered for acceptance.

Thank you for your support of FEA, and we look forward to seeing you in Savannah.
