Call for Proposals

71st Annual Meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society

Nov 20 - 22, 2019, San Diego, CA

Theme: “Christ in all Scripture”

All full members of ETS and student members enrolled in research doctoral programs are invited to submit paper proposals on this year’s theme (various ways in which Scripture, including the Old Testament, points toward Christ and his work). As always, quality papers on topics not related to the theme are also welcome. Several sections have posted specific themes for their open sessions. To view the section themes, please see the section announcements.

Please submit your paper proposal via the ETS website. Go to and follow the directions for submission. You will be asked to fill out a paper proposal form and furnish an abstract of the paper. An acceptable paper is one that can be delivered in 25-30 minutes, with 5-10 minutes for discussion.

The proposal period will open on Friday, March 1, 2019. The submission deadline for proposals will be Friday, March 29, 2019, at 5:00 p.m. Central.

For questions about the Annual Meeting program, please contact the ETS staff (

We look forward to an encouraging and edifying time together with all of you in sunny San Diego.
