The 7th International Conference on Local Government


Submission Guidelines

ICLG2022 welcomes individual papers and fully-organized panels.

  • Individual papers should be 3,000-4,000 words. Paper formatting should follow our manuscript template (see the Conference Website). Citation styles should follow the APA Manual, 7th Edition.
  • Fully-organized panels should consist of a maximum of five papers and/or presentations, including a moderator if presenting, and an optional discussant who will not do a formal presentation. The conference committee will seek to distribute panels equally throughout the time slots. Panel sessions will be determined after receiving individual paper proposals and suggestions from those who volunteer to be panel organizers.
  • All papers should not have been published in any academic or professional journal prior to the conference.
  • Each presenter must submit their abstract of 250 words, excluding title, authors, affiliations, and keywords (use our abstract template). The deadline for abstract submissions has been extended to September 30, 2022. After the review of your abstract, the organizing committee will notify you by September 15, 2022 for abstracts submitted in the first round. If your abstract is accepted to be presented at the conference, you should submit your full paper by October 31, 2022.


Please register and submit your manuscript via the login panel on the left hand side.
