Deadline for all paper proposals:

November 15, 2019

All submissions for ACCUTE 2020 should be made using the form below

This includes submissions for the General Call for Papers,  Joint-Sponsored Panels, Member-Organized Panels, and Board-Sponsored Panels

Please note the following:

To be complete, a submission requires contact information, a proposal of 300-500 words (with no identifying marks), an abstract of 100 words max., and a biographical note of 50 words max.

We will send out acknowledgements for submissions in the days following the Nov. 15th deadline.  If you submit a proposal but don’t hear back from us by November 30, please email us.


The proposal should be a 300-500 word description of your paper, with no identifying marks, as it will be sent to vettors.  Please see the FAQs for details on what makes a good paper or proposal.  As with most of life, this form is not perfect.  The form does not accept special characters or formatting, but only plain text.  If you cut and paste your proposal into the text box, you may need to do some light editing, as some special characters might appear as “garbage” text.  If you have any problems, please let us know.

Type of Proposal:

Please indicate if your proposal should be sent to the General Call, to a Member-Organized or Joint-Sponsored Panel, or to a Board-Sponsored Panel, and, if relevant, name the special panel.  You cannot submit the same paper to the General Pool and to a Member-Organized or Joint-Sponsored Panel.  However, if your proposal is rejected for a Member-Organized or Joint-Sponsored Panel, it may still be considered for the General Pool.  You may make more than one submission if the proposals are substantially different and they go to different CFPs (e.g. one to the General Call and one to a Member-Organized or Joint-Sponsored Panel). However, if chosen for a special panel, your other submission(s) will be withdrawn since members are restricted to one paper per person on the conference program (not including Board-Sponsored Panels and the Christianity and Literature Study Group).


These are very helpful for the office when we are working on the program, but should be framed in terms that will connect with other papers. Common keywords might note the period, the theoretical or methodological approach, the authors, the region/nationality of topic, and/or thematic terms.


The abstract should be a 100-word description of the presentation that will eventually be included in the conference program.

Special A/V Request:

Every room will be equipped with a basic A/V package, including a computer, data projector, sound, and HDMI and VGA cables.  Members will need to provide their own Mac adapter, if necessary.  Please enter any additional special requests in the space provided.

Note: If you have a WordPress account, and you are logged in, the “name” and “email address” fields might already be filled out with your WordPress name and email. If you need to change them, you should be able to, but if not just log out of WordPress and try again.

ACCUTE Proposal Submission Form:

Please review your submission before hitting “Submit,” as there is no option to go back or review after this point.  If you find you’ve made an error after hitting “Submit,” please contact us by email, and we will happily make the correction.
