Call for Workshops

WE ARE CURRENTLY SEEKING PROPOSALS FOR WORKSHOPS TO BE HELD FRIDAY, JULY 7, 2023 IN BALTIMORE, MARYLAND

EXTENDED!  PROPOSALS ARE DUE SEPTEMBER 1, 2022 OCTOBER 1, 2022

Annual ACA Workshops offer both novices and experts an opportunity to focus on timely and important research areas. Workshops, proposed and organized by volunteers, allow attendees to focus their full attention to a designated topic over a one-day period; offer hands-on training, and discussion between speakers and the audience; limited audience size; and a more in-depth review of important topics than is typically allowed in a regular session.  

Guidelines and instructions on how to submit a proposal can be found HERE.
