Submissions

Last updated: March 1, 2022

The General Call for Participation for the 2022 AAA Annual Meeting – Unsettling Landscapes is open. Start your General Call for Participation Submission now!

There are a series of questions you should ask yourself as a submitter to identify which submission type is right for you in this year’s hybrid meeting format.

  1. Are you submitting individually or as a group?
  2. Are you (or your group) planning to attend the meeting to present in-person, or will you present virtually/online?
  3. Would you like to present live (in real-time) or prepare a recording for viewing by attendees?
  4. Do you have individual abstracts to present?

Once you have the answers to these questions, we invite you to use this interactive Excel tool, view this PDF flow chart, or complete this decision activity (PDF option, word option) to identify the types of submissions available to you.

View our our General Call for Participation Submission Types pages for a more detailed explanation of each submission type available, to include participant roles for each submission type and their limits. If you are submitting to the General Call for Participation, we also encourage you to learn more about its Peer Review Process.

AAA membership and paid registration will not be required to submit to the Call for Participation. All individuals accepted onto the program will be required to become a member (or secure a waiver) and pay registration by the September 9 deadline.

The timeline for the 2022 Call for Participation is below. Please mark your calendars. Check back on this website, follow us on social media, and watch your email (if you are a member) for updates and announcements.
