This draft copy of the Conference Program provides an early look at the conference
schedule and includes basic information about venues, logistics, and more.
To help ensure a smoothe conference experience for everyone, the Council has put together a few quick tips for navigating the International Conference of Europeanists. Those who are new to the Council's conferences will find them particularly helpful, but even long-standing CES members will find a few useful reminders.

The current economic crisis of debt, the euro and unemployment takes place in a framework of highly dynamic creative and destructive processes occurring at various levels: globalization, heightened nationalisms, continued migration, shifting cultures, rising inequality, concerns over security, climate change, sustainable development, etc.
All of these transform definitions of Europe: of its geographical boundaries; of what institutions are needed to structure and resolve issues of policy and democracy; and of how Europe can and might interact with other parts of the world, from North America to revolutionary North Africa to the new powerhouses in Asia and Latin America. The intellectual challenge of grappling with these changes in our world provides the foundations for an exciting meeting, held in one of the founding capitals of a global Europe.
The Council for European Studies (CES) invites proposals for panels, roundtables, book discussions and individual papers on the study of Europe broadly defined. We encourage proposals in the widest range of disciplines, and particularly welcome panels that combine disciplines, nationalities, and generations. Participants are permitted to present in a maximum of two sessions.
We strongly encourage participants to submit their proposals as part of an organized panel. Full panel proposals will be given top priority in the selection process by the Program Committee. Participants may find it useful to connect with like-minded scholars through the growing number of CES research networks, linked on the "Research" page of the CES website.
Proposals may be submitted from August 15 to October 15, 2012. Submitters will be notified of the Committee's decision by December 10, 2012.
