- Explore our Subject Areas:
PCA/ACA scholars present within subject areas, each organized by a Chair or Co-Chairs. Click here to visit the Subject Areas page.
- Select one Area:
Due to limited space and time, presenters may only give one paper at the conference. We welcome fresh approaches to subjects that maintain our commitment to scholarship and to professional presentation.
- Craft a proposal:
Write a 100 to 250 word abstract on your proposed topic. Be as specific as you can, even if your project is still gestating.
- Submit your proposal online:
Go to http://ncp.pcaaca.org. Instructions for logging in and submitting proposals appear on the home screen of the site. You can find more detailed instructions on this site.
Note: If you wish to submit a complete panel or a roundtable session, presenters must submit their papers individually (ideally noting that they’re part of a panel and listing the names of their co-panelists), and then the organizer should email the panel chair to let them know you intend to present together.
- Receive your response:
You should hear back about your proposal within two to three weeks. If the wait goes longer, first contact the Area Chair, and then, if no response, contact Joe Hancock, the PCA/ACA Conference Coordinator (email@example.com). He may be able to expedite a definitive answer.
- Register and reserve accommodations:
The registration process allows you to register for the conference, arrange for a hotel room, and sign up for a Journal. Follow the links above under the “Conference” heading for more information.
