In an effort to streamline our processes, ISTR has changed the way papers should be submitted and distributed for the upcoming conference. ISTR will no longer be sending emails connecting speakers and moderators directly. Authors take note, this year, authors will be asked to upload their papers to our online AllAcademic system www.istr.org/aap by June 10. This will allow your moderator and conference participants to read your paper in advance of the conference. Authors will be assigned a moderator in late April/early May and they will be given instructions for downloading your paper from AllAcademic.
Everything online will also by synced with the forthcoming conference app, which will mean that conference participants can download papers directly to their mobile devices in advance and during the conference.
We hope that this will make it easier for authors to share their work with ISTR members.
For the first time this year, ISTR has also published paper drafting guidance.
Please note that ISTR has published guidance for paper presentations and poster design and presentation, including information on how to print your poster at a local print shop.
Post-Conference Publication and Working Paper Opportunities
Following the conference, authors are invited to revise their papers in the light of conference feedback with an eye to an appropriate submission to Voluntas, the peer‐ reviewed official journal of ISTR, or any other journals in the field. Publication decisions are the sole discretion of such journals and ISTR does not participate in the editorial decisions on such submissions. Authors can also submit their papers to be reviewed for selection for publication in the ISTR Conference Working Papers Series to be published after the conference on the ISTR website.
Please direct any additional questions to ISTR at ISTR_Secretariat@jhu.edu

If you plan to present a paper, panel, poster, or roundtable at the ISTR Conference in Sweden then you MUST register for the conference by March 18. Why? Because those that register by March 18 will have their presentations scheduled and their names and abstracts printed in the ISTR Conference program.
Those that register after March 18 will not be scheduled to present. And, the price is higher after March 18. So why wait?
And as a reminder, in order to register for the conference you need to be a paying member of ISTR (not a non-paying affiliate).
Here are all the links you will need.
