Welcome to the 2018 AAPOR Annual Conference abstract submission site!

The 2018 AAPOR Annual Conference will take place from Wednesday, May 16, 2018 - Saturday May 19, 2018 in Denver, Colorado. Full panel, individual paper, methodological brief, poster and PORTAL proposals will be accepted until November 9, 2017. Please follow the directions below when submitting your abstract.

Submissions: Each abstract proposal is to be submitted individually and authors must select a preferred presentation format. Information on submitting each presentation format is listed in the Presentation Format section later in this site, or review the Call for Abstracts.

 Panels, Papers, Methodological Briefs and Posters and PORTAL Sessions: November 9, 2017
Acceptance notification: Mid-January, 2018

The proposal submission form asks for author contact information, title, keywords describing the content of the presentation and an abstract of no more than 300 words. Submitters should indicate if the authors are members of AAPOR. If selected, the primary presenter for an abstract will serve as the contact for all correspondence regarding session proposal acceptance and scheduling. Multi-paper restriction: To promote broad conference participation, an individual may not submit more than two proposals as first author or as a presenter, regardless of the proposed format of the submission (panel participant, paper, poster or methodological brief). Also, each submission must identify who will be the presenter at the conference. 

Confirmation: Submitters will receive automatic email confirmation of their submission within 24 hours. Submitters who do not receive this confirmation should log back on to the site to verify their submission was accepted correctly in the system. NOTE: the submitter is the primary contact person and is responsible for notifying all other participants of acceptance, rejection, scheduling and any other information provided by AAPOR.

Review Process: Each submission will be reviewed by at least 3 reviewers and final decisions will be made in January 2018 for all other presentation formats. Please review the Call for Abstracts for full descriptions of the submission types BEFORE submitting your proposal.

Notice to Federal Employees: The Annual AAPOR Conference conforms to the OPM definition of a "developmental assignment." It is intended for educational purposes; over three quarters of time scheduled is for planned, organized exchange of information between presenters and audience, thereby qualifying under section 4101 of title 5, United States Code as a training activity. The AAPOR Conference is a collaboration in the scientific community, whose objectives are to provide a training opportunity to attendees; teach the latest methodology and approaches to survey research best practices; make each attendee a better survey researcher, and; maintain and improve professional survey competency.
