- 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.
- 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 you receive no response, contact Bruce Drushel, the PCA/ACA VP of Area Chairs, (firstname.lastname@example.org). He may be able to expedite a definitive answer.
