2025 Call For Papers

The 2025 Annual Meeting will be held from January 2-5 in Philadelphia, PA. 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 1.

We have not determined the format for the 2025 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.
