The Association for the Study of Sport and the European Union (Sport&EU) invites the submission of paper and panel proposals to be considered for the 7th annual conference entitled “Towards a Networked Governance in Sport” which will be held in Lausanne at the Swiss Graduate School of Public Administration between 21st and 22nd June 2012. The organisers would welcome proposals that address some of the main topics of the conference: 1) networked governance in sport; 2) Sport Betting: A transversal challenge; and 3) The Summer Olympics are back in Europe: The Games and EU Law. Papers and panels with an interdisciplinary approach are encouraged, whilst graduate students and emerging scholars are also urged to submit works in progress. Panels and papers that do not fall within the main themes will also be considered.

In line with Sport&EU’s traditional policy of promoting gender equality, female academics and/or practitioners are specially encouraged to send their proposals, and papers with a focus on gender equity in sport will be also welcome.

For single paper  proposals, send a 250 word abstract, together with a short biography and your contact details.

For panel proposals (maximum of 3 papers per panel) send (in a single document) a 250 word panel abstract, together with a 250 word abstract for each paper. Please also include a chair for the panel (if you cannot find a suitable chairperson we will allocate one) and a biographic note for each presenter.

All paper and panel proposals should be sent to Jean-Patrick Villeneuve at conference2012@sportandeu.com.  The deadline for submissions is 25th January.

All papers submitted by this deadline will be peer reviewed with confirmation of successful applications provided by 27th February.
