The RC08 session will include panels on all aspects of legislatures and parliamentary government. There are two types of panels: Open panels submitted without papers and open to paper abstract submissions, and Closed panels which are pre-organized and complete panels including 4-6 papers.

Please make sure that your panel is submitted for review in the RC08 session.
