_DSC4042

The California Regional Student Conference will be held on March 9th – 10th, 2018, at Claremont Graduate University in Claremont, CA. During this conference, students will present research across a wide variety of policy areas, through poster sessions and on conference panels with their peers.

Participating students will gain valuable research presentation experience, as well as receive important feedback from academics, practitioners, and other students. Students will have several opportunities to network and make connections with a diverse group of policy professionals, as well as other policy students.

APPAM will solicit abstracts for (1) individual papers or projects to be integrated into panels, (2) panels made up of 3 – 4 papers/projects, and (3) posters. Abstracts for individual papers/projects and posters should be no longer than 500 words; if a panel of papers/projects is proposed, there should be a summary of each paper/project plus an overarching description of the panel and its importance. Single papers, if accepted, will be assembled into panels by the Program Committee. Fully formed panels are 3 – 4 papers, each with a presenting author, all with a common theme.
