Resubmitting proposals from ECER 2020 to ECER 2021

You are welcome to resubmit submissions which were accepted to the cancelled ECER 2020 to ECER 2021. However, we would like to strongly recommend that you update your proposal to reflect the most recent research and take in recommendations from last year’s reviewers. Please be aware that all proposals will again be subject to review by the 2021 programme committee. Submissions which were accepted to the cancelled ECER 2020 will NOT automatically be accepted to ECER 2021.

Important!: To indicate that your proposal was accepted to ECER 2020, please include LAST YEAR’S paper ID number in the title of your submission in the following format, inlcluding the parentheses/brackets: (2020 ID: paper ID number) followed by your title. For example, the title for last year's Opening Ceremony would be: (2020 ID: 3161) Opening Ceremony

In order to facilitate this, we have added the required prefix to the titles of the 2020 proposals in the 2020 conference system (Conftool). You can access Conftool 2020 in reading mode/non-editing mode and COPY AND PASTE the titles with their necessary prefixes from there.

How to Submit to ECER and ERC 2021

Submission Time: 1 December 2020 - 31 January 2021

  • All proposals for ECER & ERC must be submitted using the 2021 online submission system. Accounts from previous years are usually no longer available, so please create a new user account. Afterwards you can access the submission form which will allow you to enter your proposal. 
  • You will be technically unable to submit your proposal if information is missing. So please collect all necessary information before submitting your proposals. It is also important to stay within the limits of word-counts indicated in the examples as otherwise the submission system will not process your submission.
  • All submissions need to be directed towards an EERA network. Learn more about networks and their scope here.
  • If you want to present at the Emerging Researchers' Conference, please select the Emerging Researchers' Group as the network. The ERC accepts papers that discuss design and methodology, with some indication of what the data might indicate, or at least what will be the expected outcomes/ results. Please note that you cannot submit the same paper to ECER and ERC.
  • We recommend you first consult the information on the ECER Formats of Presentations and Presentation Formats @ ERC as well as the example submission forms at the same pages. Then please prepare your abstract according to the pre-conditions in a text programme such as Word and then copy and paste it into the Conftool submission form.
  • ECER conference language is English. All proposals need to be submitted and presented in English, and only proposals handed in in English will be considered.
  • Once provided with a username and password you can re-enter the website at any time prior to the submission deadline in order to change or update your data and proposal.
  • Please remember to keep your username and password safe - you will need them again to register for the conference.

Limitations Regarding Number of Submissions and Presentations per Person

Due to the high number of participants at ECER, we can only guarantee each person two presentations without a time clash. While the submission system will only allow you to submit two proposals, it is possible for you to be listed as presenting co-author on another person’s submission. As the limit of two guaranteed presentations applies to all submissions (including the participation in a symposium), please be aware that if you are listed as presenting author/presenting co-author for more than two presentations in total, we may have to withdraw you as presenter from one or more presentations.
