The Organising Committee of the Congress is pleased to announce a call for sections (panels) for the 7thInternational Congress of Belarusian Studies. The Congress will take place on 15-17 September 2017 in Warsaw (Poland).

Sections (panels) are supposed to be sites for discussion of particular research problems or presentation of results of scholarly activity within certain disciplines or research fields. The Organizing Committee does not set any restrictions regarding discipline or topic of the panel, and thus suggests that academic and research communities articulate their own priorities and interests.

Sections (panels) can be disciplinary, thematic or focus on particular narrow problems. We also accept applications for sections that suggest discussion of important social and political issues, as well as roundtables, workshops, presentations, etc.

Formation of sections and panels through an open call will approximate the Congress to the needs and expectations of the academic and expert community.

The Organizing Committee calls upon research institutions and communities as well as academic leaders to participate in the design of thematic priorities of the 7th Congress.

Applications can be made by individuals, groups or institutions.

To apply, please fill in the online form:

Application deadline is 10 March 2017.

You can find samples of sections, panels, roundtables, etc. in 2014, 2015 and 2016 Congress programs.
