From the organizers:

Abstracts and research papers are to fulfill the following:

fiqhī or uṣūlī topics should address modern ethical concerns.

-Papers addressing the ethical theory of a specific scholar should avoid delving into biography and restrict analysis to the ethical theory itself.

-Papers on applied ethics should include a theoretical foundation on which the applied analysis is built, bringing together the theoretical and the applied.

CILE calls on scholars and academicians with interest in the topic of the seminar, especially from the fields of maqāṣidfiqh and uṣūl al-fiqh, philosophy, and applied fields (including medicine, business, economics, politics, environment, and others) to send their submissions including:

  1. An abstract (300 to 500 words) that details the idea/argument, key research question, and the proposed methodology to address the question.
  2. A short biography (not exceeding 500 words) that details the academic background of the researcher, their research interests, and key publications.

Scholars with successful submission will be contacted and invited to submit their full papers (7000 to 10,000 words) according to the timeline listed below.

Abstracts and papers will be evaluated by a scientific committee building on scientific criteria and taking into consideration the relevance of the submission to the topic of the seminar. A limited number of successful submissions will be selected to invite their authors to participate in the seminar to be held in Doha. CILE will cover travel and accommodation expenses.
