Joint Organized Sessions and Roundtables: Please keep in mind that proposals for joint sessions and roundtables must be submitted to both the HSS and to SHOT.

Collaboration: To encourage and aid the creation of panels with strong thematic coherence, the HSS has created a collaboration form for interested scholars to submit potential proposals and a spreadsheet to review those submissions. Anyone seeking like-minded presenters should post and consult the postings on the collaboration spreadsheet.
