|Research: Final Papers & Session Preparation|
Submit a final paper to both your session discussant and conference organizers by Tuesday, October 8, 2019. Submit final papers for presentations in a paper session or pre-organized paper session, but not for posters or roundtables.
The names of authors that submit by the October 8 deadline and the title of their presentation will be highlighted in the program and in the conference app as having a paper available on request for attendees. Conference attendees often use this information to judge the quality of a session they are considering attending.
Discussants are not required to provide comments on presentations for which final papers were not submitted.
Preparing for #ACSP2020
Poster presentations have become a tradition for the ACSP conference. Presenters will share their work during the Friday afternoon session and reception in the ACSP Community Center.
Check-in Your Poster:
Please bring your poster to the ACSP Conference Registration Desk. The registration desk will begin receiving posters on Wednesday (10/23) from 4:00 - 8:00 p.m., Thursday (10/24) from 7:00 a.m. – 6:45 p.m. and Friday (10/25) from 7:00 – 10:00 a.m. We’ll give you an ID card for your poster and push pins and direct you to hang your poster in the ACSP Community Center [exhibit hall, Regency AB Ballroom]. Posters will be grouped by track and can be exhibited as soon as they are checked in. This will culminate in an Exhibitor & Poster Session & Reception on Friday, October 26, from 2:00 – 6:00 p.m.
Attending to Your Poster:
There will be two blocks of time when presenters should be available at their poster to talk with attendees. The app will reflect these two time blocks, as does the printed flyer in everyone’s registration kits. Posters in Tracks 1 - 6 are scheduled for 2:00pm - 4:00pm; posters in Tracks 7-15 are scheduled for 4:00pm - 6:00pm.
We'll have afternoon snacks brought into the Community Center periodically throughout the event, and drinks will always be available.
A committee will judge “Best Poster” starting Friday morning at 10:00am so the winning poster will have a blue ribbon to display during the reception. We will also have a People’s Choice award – the winner voted on by secret ballot using the conference app during the reception. The winner of Best Poster will be notified in advance, and announced at the Saturday Luncheon. The winner of People's Choice will be announced via social media! Watch for it!
Send a quick email of a necessary withdrawal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Program questions should be addressed to: Gerardo Sandoval, ACSP National Conference Committee Chair, email@example.com.
Poster logistical questions should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Successful roundtables are those that have the clearest focus and foster discussions. Participants listed in the program should make short summaries of their viewpoints and engage in discussions with each other and the audience. A roundtable requires an organizer who submits the abstract and confirms participants, a moderator to manage the session at the conference (optionally the same person or different people), and a minimum of three participants in order to remain on the program. A successful roundtable requires strict enforcement of time limits that leaves a large block of time for audience participation. Roundtable sessions do not include any paper presentations and are generally placed in a 60-minute time slot.
ACSP Committees, Journal Editorial Boards, ACSP Special Interest Groups, and ACSP leadership are entitled to a time slot and space for business meetings and sessions during the Annual Conference. We also welcome proposals for social events and substantive sessions - usually roundtables - organized by ACSP special interest groups. If you are not a participant submitting a proposal on behalf of one of the aforementioned groups with pre-approved permission from the group, you must go through the abstract submission process.
Speaker Ready Area
Participants on the final program are limited to:
Substitutions of types of placements are not permitted. If you have more than one appearance in one of the categories in this paragraph, in fairness to everyone, we will ask you to withdraw the additional appearance(s) and to inform the appropriate track chair(s) prior to the scheduling of sessions.
ACSP recognizes ONLY religious holidays as valid reasons for scheduling requests. Once the schedule is created, authors who cannot present during their scheduled time must withdraw their paper from the program. We strongly recommend you do not make travel reservations until you know your schedule, which should be available in late July.
AICP pre-approves the ACSP Conference sessions so AICP members know the sessions they attend will be accepted for continuing education credits. During the abstract submission process, you will be required to use a pull-down menu to indicate an AICP-related topic for your abstract. There may not be a perfect fit choice, but select the one that seems the closest to your topic. This is a list created by the AICP.
Track Chairs will invite and do their best to confirm discussants for all paper sessions. We welcome volunteers and suggestions for discussants proffered by authors and pre-organized session leaders. If you are willing to act as discussant or have a suggestion or nomination, there is a simple form to complete through this link. Discussants may serve two sessions if invited to do so.
