Forwarded from Don Ostrowski:

Dear ESSA members,

ASEEES has just sent out a warning about panels for the next conference in Washington DC in November: "We are anticipating an exceptionally large number of proposals for the 2016 Convention."

If you have concerns that your panel will not be accepted, may I remind you that the Early Slavic Studies Association (ESSA), as an ASEEES member organization is entitled to sponsor a panel at the Convention. If you think your panel could serve as an ESSA-sponsored panel, let me know (, and we will see if we can arrange it.

All the best,

Dear Don,

thank you for your proposal to sponsor a panel.

When I was submitting at ASEEES last week I saw the possibility to have a panel sponsored, too. And I searched the FAQs and everything to find out what it means that a panel is sponsored by an ASEEES member organization. I got very confused for I did not find out what it means that a panel is sponsored.
Could you,please, explain for us on the list how this is meant? And how we secure that we do everything right when submitting a sponsored panel?
I think this would be interesting for other non-native speakers who are organizing panels, as well.

All the best, Cornelia
