On behalf of the Organising Committee for the 19th Annual IRSPM Conference, I cordially invite you to submit Panel proposals.

IRSPM uses a two stage process. This first call is for PANELS. Once the panels have been accepted by the Scientific Committee, there will be a call for PAPERS.

Please note the closing date is 30th June 2014.
Prospective Panel chairs and co-chairs should develop a topic on an important theme of public management, particularly ones relevant to the overall theme of the conference.

Please note that in the case of similar panel submissions, the Scientific Committee may ask panel chairs to collaborate in creating consolidated panels.

We encourage you to consider creative ways of organising your panels, and you will find suggestions in the Call.
Details of the call can be found here Notification of accepted panels will be provided by 31st July 2014 and a call for papers will be launched 8th August .

We look forward to receiving your panel proposals. Please forward this call to any colleagues you think would be interested in organising a panel.

With best wishes
