Call for Papers

We welcome your submissions for the PAA 2024 Annual Meeting and look forward to a full and rigorous scientific conference next spring! PAA currently has no plans for a hybrid conference and sessions will be in-person in Columbus, Ohio.

Please note a few important items:

  • All accepted presenters will be required to pre-register for the conference by February 5, 2024.
  • Unfortunately, PAA cannot accommodate schedule requests; if your paper or poster is accepted, it could be scheduled any time between Thursday, April 18 and Saturday, April 20.
  • Individuals can only serve as a presenting author twice on the program, but can have additional roles such as chair or discussant.
  • Organizers will not review papers from authors with whom they have a conflict of interest (close collaborators or current students/postdocs). As such, please do not submit your abstract to someone with whom you may have a conflict of interest.
  • There will be no travel awards for PAA 2024.

Two Presentation Rule

The PAA Board of Directors has instituted a two-presentations rule, i.e., each person is limited to a maximum of two presentations (summed across regular oral sessions, flash sessions and poster sessions).

A further rule is a limit of four appearances in total, encompassing the roles of presenter, chair, and discussant. But there is no limit on how many times a person can appear on the program as a co-author. Single-authored papers must be presented by the author. For multiple-authored papers, at the time of submission a presenter must be designated; once all sessions are finalized (that is, all papers and posters have been accepted or rejected), there will be a short time interval when presenter status can be revised.

Note that for the purpose of the two-presentations rule, the roles of chair and discussant do not count; instead, there is a limit of four presentations in the roles of presenter, chair, and discussant inclusive.
