Please submit your proposal by June 30th using the Individual Paper Proposal Form on the WHF website www.worldhumanitiesforum.com. Please refer to the forum’s theme and subthemes when filling out the Form. It may be written in either English or Korean. You will need to provide your proposal description, between 600 to 750 words, and abstract between 200 to 250 words. It is fine for your abstract to appear in your description, in part or whole. Your submission will be reviewed by the forum’s board of reviewers. We will send a notification letter by email by July 20th. We will also put up a notice on our website.
(2) Panel Proposal
You can also form a Panel. Please submit your Panel proposal by June 30th using the Panel Proposal Form on the WHF website www.worldhumanitiesforum.com. The representative of the Panel will need to provide the title of the Panel, a list of panelists, a description or rationale for presenting the Panel and short abstracts of each panelists’ paper.

2. Final Submissions
All presenters should submit the final version of their paper and abstract by Oct. 1st, 2020 (Thursday). Papers should be no more than 4,000 English words or 8,000 korean words and they will be printed in the official Proceedings.
3. Language and Format
All presentations will be delivered in English or korean. Official ceremonies and key speeches of the forum will be interpreted simultaneously from Korean to English. Interpretation is available for any other language should the forum recognize that there are sufficient grounds for it. Language adjustments may be called for to ensure a smooth-running session. Each session will be comprised of one moderator and five presenters and will run for a total of 90 minutes. Individual presentations will be limited to 15 minutes. Please keep in mind that given the limited amount of time, presenters will be asked to provide summarized accounts of their paper. For overseas presenters, we will be using a video conferencing system due to COVID-19 and presentations will be done online. For more information, we will explain how to use the program, how to present the paper, and guide you through the pre-test process.
4. All presenters will be paid a presentation fee.
