Annual Meeting

St. Charles Streetcar by Paul Broussard

The 2023 Annual Meeting is now complete. Our first fully hybrid meeting was held from January 5-8 in New Orleans, Louisiana. We are still processing the recordings from the sessions and hope to have them posted to the meeting platform by Friday, January 27th. Once posted the videos will be available to all registered attendees (in-person and virtual) for 30 days. An email will be sent to all registrants with information on how to access the videos once they are posted.

Registration is still open

Its not to late to register for the meeting. Virtual registration will grant you access to all the meeting recordings for the 30 days they are available. See the registration page for all rates and details. 

2024 Call For Papers

The 2024 Annual Meeting will be held from January 4-7 in Chicago, Illinois. We are updating the Call for Papers and submission system. The deadlines for submissions will follow the same pattern as previous years with deadlines in late March for all colloquia, any joint AIA/SCS sessions, and any open-session submissions needing an early decision to acquire a visa or obtain funding. We will accept workshops, open session paper and posters submissions, and any provisionally accepted colloquia and workshops that are resubmitting for the second deadline in August. Lightning Session and Roundtable submissions will be accepted through November 15.

We have not determined the format for the 2024 meeting. Once we have completed our post meeting survey and gotten additional feedback we will determine the detailed structure and format of the conference, along with registration categories and rates. Updated information will be posted as it becomes available.
