Please note that the new deadline for submissions is 14 July, 2023, 3:59am UTC.

The WIC will screen all submissions and will send relevant abstracts to be considered by the organizers of the different categories. 

The shape of the conference and of each subject will depend on responses to this call for papers. The objective of outlining specific categories in advance is to develop a focus for many of our sessions.  We encourage collaborations across disciplines and countries between researchers and those who are responsible for developing policy instruments to reduce unwarranted variations.
