• AEJMC 2017: Call for panel proposals


    Call for Panel Proposals
    for the 2017 Convention in Chicago, IL

    Due Monday, Sept. 26, 2016
    Fully realized panel proposals are welcome, but ideas-in-progress are also invited. Given the nature of the panel scheduling process, it is common for panelists to be added and panel types/titles revised based on co-sponsorship with other divisions. Please note that CCS sole-sponsored panel proposals will be considered. However, the majority of AEJMC panels tend to be co-sponsored across divisions and interest groups. Only submit your panel proposal to ONE division or interest group.

    Email your completed form to CCS Vice Head Madeleine Esch, madeleine.esch@salve.edu.
