2016 Fall Research Conference Caucus


2016 Fall Research Conference Caucus

We are now accepting proposals for caucus sessions at the 2016 APPAM Fall Research Conference. Details on submission requirements and process are listed below. Submissions will be accepted until September 9, 2016.

What is a Caucus?

A caucus session is meant to prompt informal discussions on an emerging policy or management topic and is led by a moderator. These open discussions are designed to center around evolving research topics and invite feedback, questions, and promote discourse.

Caucuses are one hour long and should begin with the moderator giving a brief 10-minute introduction to the general topic and suggesting some questions, theories, or related information to spur discussion. Attendees are encouraged to respond to questions and comments by the moderator. Participants should feel free to raise their own questions for the group and suggest other perspectives and angles to be considered.

Caucus moderators are to focus on a broad topic and guide the discussion of attendees. Moderators should not spend more than 10-12 minutes introducing the topic and should not present research or written work. Moderators should invite questions and differing perspectives but not allow any one perspective or person to dominate the conversation.

Caucuses during the 2016 Fall Research Conference will take place during breakfast on Saturday, November 5th.
