There will be a Plenary Session on the first day of the Conference where the Invited Speakers consisting of respected international law scholars will give speech and share opinion to the participants regarding “Culture and International Law” as a major theme of the conference itself.
Call for Papers
There will be up to four papers per panel to give presenters and discussants adequate time for fruitful engagement. We encourage participants to focus their papers and address the conference theme and sub-themes. In addition to the general call for individual papers, we would also like to encourage individuals to organize their own panels by coordinating with colleagues. This will allow for the panels to be more cohesive and will also foster greater collaboration between international law stakeholders.
Selection criteria for papers
The papers accepted for presentation at the CILS conference will be based on a competitive selection process. The selection criteria will be as follows:
- Relevance to the broad theme and sub-theme
- Quality of the abstract
- Geographical diversity of presenters
- Balance between senior and junior presenters
