As you are creating your submissions, we encourage you to check the Single Paper Listings below for papers that might work well with your proposal in order to submit a complete panel.  While we still encourage individual paper submissions, complete panels - three or four papers along a common theme with a chair and discussant - have a much better chance of being accepted for the conference.  If there is a paper in the listing in which you are interested, please contact the authors and see if they wish to have their work become part of your panel.

We hope this will encourage APPAM members and the public policy community at large to broaden their research networks and become familiar with their peers who are doing important work around the world.

The listings will be updated every other day until the submission deadline of April 10

There will be no extensions to the submission deadline.

Please contact APPAM Education & Conference Manager, Tristanne Staudt with any questions at or 202.496.0130, ext. 27.
