In order to make this list as efficient as possible for subscribers, we ask that "subject" line of your message appear as follows:

  • CFP: Panel Topic (deadline; conference title; conference date). 
  • Please use the American dating system of month/day/year.
  • The body of your message can be organized as you like, but should not include attachments and should contain the following information:
  • The complete (non-acronym) title of the conference or journal
  • The date and location of the conference
  • The title of the panel or journal special issue
  • A description of the topic
  • Your contact information for inquiries and submissions

Updates: If you need to alter information in a call for papers which has already been posted, you can send an update. The update should substitute the word UPDATE for CFP in the "subject" line. The body of the message should clearly indicate at the top what information has changed and should then include the rest of the information pertinent to the call.

Unacceptable messages: To protect subscribers from an unnecessary volume of messages, the following will NOT be posted, and you are therefore requested to refrain from sending:

  • mailings which are not calls for papers
  • mailings which are neither related to German themes nor interdisciplinary
  • multiple postings of the same call for papers.
