Submissions: The proposal submission form asks for author contact information, title, presentation track, keywords describing the content of the presentation, and an abstract of no more than 300 words.  A description of the presentation tracks and formats is provided here.

Deadlines: Abstracts will be accepted until November 8, 2019. We expect to send acceptance notifications by the end of January 2020.

Confirmation: Submitters will receive automatic email confirmation of their submission within 5 minutes. Submitters who do not receive this confirmation should log back on to the site to verify their submission was submitted 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 for papers, methodological briefs, and posters will be reviewed by at least 2 peer reviewers and a final reviewer who assists the Conference Chair and Associate Conference Chair with making final decisions about abstracts for the specific presentation track.  We expect to send acceptance notifications by the end of January 2020.

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 primary presenter at the conference. 

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.

Thank you for your proposal!
