Questions & Answers

Q: My proposal was not accepted for inclusion in the conference - how can I participate in the conference?

Q: How is the conference theme selected, and what is its purpose?


The APPAM president-elect is the chairperson of the Program Committee and selects the theme for that year's Fall Research Conference. APPAM began the practice of selecting themes for the Fall Research Conference in 1994. The theme shapes several aspects of the conference, including the special symposia, outreach by APPAM to research on new topics, and the overall response to the Call for Proposals.
