2020 Student Conferences Submissions Open


Last month, APPAM opened the submissions portal for the 2020 Regional Student Conferences in California and Washington, DC

The California Regional Student Conference will happen on April 5-6, 2020 on the campus of the University of California, Riverside in Riverside, California, while the DC Regional Student Conference will happen on April 24-25 2020 on the campus of American University, in Washington, DC.

The Regional Student Conferences are a great way for students to get peer and professional feedback on their work, enlarge their networks and learn about what their colleagues are working on. 

APPAM is soliciting 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 100 – 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.

New this year, because the submission portal is the same for both conferences, proposals may only be submitted to one conference. Any proposals submitted to both conferences will be removed from consideration.

The deadline for all submissions is 11:59 PM PST on Friday, January 17, 2020.
