Welcome to the Eurocrim e-conference 2021 Homepage
The 2021 conference of the European Society of Criminology will take place online through this professional virtual conference platform. The conference will take place during three full days: Wednesday 8 September to Friday 10 September 2021. Participants will have access to the video channels of the panels directly from their computer or from a dedicated conference app. In addition, the platform offers a range of other functionalities, including tools for direct one-on-one or group interaction of conference participants via live chat or videoconferencing, as well as social events. Abstract submission and registration are now open!
All abstracts must be submitted on-line through this website. You will need to create an account first (go to “login” on the top right of this page, or click the link provided). Once this is done, you will be asked to indicate the type of submission you wish to make. The submission choices available for the meetings include:
Individual Paper Presentation
The deadline is the same for all three forms of submission (30 June 2021). You will receive a confirmation email after you submit. If you do not, email [email protected]. Please note that late submissions will not be accepted. In addition, submissions that do not conform to the guidelines will be rejected. As, in this exceptional year, the timeframe available for abstract submission is tighter than usual, we encourage participants to submit well in advance of the deadline. This will enable reviewers to assess the abstracts on a rolling basis. Moreover, ESC staff will be able to assist you with any submission problems while the call for papers remains open.
All three forms of submissions have to be submitted to a particular thematic category which you have to select from a drop-down menu during the submission process. As in previous conferences, these are mostly aligned with the ESC thematic working groups (which will be responsible for the abstract reviewing process), complemented by a few residual categories. You do not need to be a member of a thematic working group to submit an abstract on the area of expertise of that group. Submissions are open to anyone.
Pre-arranged panels: Panel submissions must include a title and an abstract for the entire panel as well as titles, abstracts and author information for all papers. Each panel should contain between three and four papers. The panel can be submitted by any of the authors. Please note: the submitter has to indicate a single preferred time zone for the entire panel. Consequently, co-panelists in a pre-arranged panel have to agree on a preferred time zone prior to submission. Those participants of pre-arranged panels whose abstract was submitted by a co-panelist do not need to create a personal profile on the website. Once the entire panel is submitted by a co-panelist, every author of the panel will receive a confirmation email. This email will contain a link to the submission site, via which authors will have the opportunity to correct, until the submission deadline, their personal and contact data if they were incorrectly entered by the submitter. We encourage panel submission organized by ESC working groups and individuals.
Individual Papers: Submissions must include a title and abstract along with author information and indicate their local time zone. Please note that these presentations are intended for individuals to discuss work that is close to completion or where substantial progress has been made. Presentations about work that has yet to begin or is only in the formative stage are not appropriate here and may be more suitable for a poster submission.
Posters: Submissions for poster presentations require a title and abstract along with author information. Along with the usual pdf format, posters can also be audio or video files. Please only upload the abstract at this stage. A separate page for poster upload will open once the review process is concluded. One poster submission per presenter is allowed.
