Due to the unusual COVID-situation, it has been decided to extend the deadline of the call for applications for the NERA-slot at the AERA‘s Annual Meeting in April 2021. Originally the deadline was May 15th but has now been extended to May 24th, 2020.
The procedure for submitting the proposal is the same as announced March 13th:
1. Networks must send in a proposal for arranging a symposium at AERA by the latest of May 15th.
2. AERA’s application format for the symposium should be used. A symposium consists of papers focusing on a common theme to demonstrate a range of perspectives or a variety of approaches. There should be participation from a minimum of 3 Nordic countries in the proposal.
3. The NERA board will draw a lot among the applicants and announce the result before June 16th.
4. The selected network prepares the final application for the symposium and sends it to the president of NERA no later than September 1st. The normal AERA review procedure does not apply to this symposium because the quality assurance has been done by the networks. The symposium-convener shall, on behalf of the network forward a short report on the AERA presentation to the NERA Board no later than one month after the AERA congress.
