2023 Late-Breaking Submissions


Late-Breaking Roundtables

Submissions are now closed. Notifications on Late Breaking Roundtables will be sent by October 16th.

We are now accepting submissions for Late-Breaking Roundtables to present at the 2023 Annual Fall Research Conference. To qualify for presentation as a Late-Breaking Roundtable, the submitted session should be on timely policy-related research topics that have arisen since submissions closed on April 12, 2023.

Roundtables do not include papers, but rather feature speakers who will discuss a topic from varying perspectives and draw the audience into a discussion on the topic. Late-Breaking Roundtable proposals should include up to four speakers plus a moderator. The moderator cannot be a speaker in the same session.

Late-Breaking Roundtables cannot be a revision of a paper, panel, workshop, or roundtable submission that was rejected during the original submission period.

Please note that only a limited number of Late-Breaking Roundtables will be accepted.

Specific Submission Criteria:
