Note that authors can submit any specific paper abstract to only one
participating group – submitting the same paper abstract to several
groups will result in disqualification and withdrawal from the review
process. Do not submit full papers but please ensure that abstracts are
between 600 and 800 words; shorter abstracts (i.e., 75 words) don’t
allow for adequate consideration with longer abstracts. Authors must
ensure that they remove any identifying information from their document.
Authors of accepted papers will be notified by mid-January 2020. Papers
presented at the midwinter conference are also eligible for presentation
at the AEJMC national convention in August. Authors are encouraged to
use the midwinter conference as an opportunity to get feedback on their
research, to improve and finalize it for submission to the national
Authors of accepted abstracts must submit complete papers (not exceeding
30 pages) to the discussant of their conference session at least two
weeks before the midwinter conference. The midwinter chair for the
relevant group will send authors the names and contact details of the
discussant for their session.
At least one author of each accepted paper must register and attend the
conference to present the paper. Failure to register by the deadline
will result in authors’ names and papers being removed from the program.
NO onsite registration will be available.
Some groups participating in the midwinter conference have award
opportunities (e.g. for travel). Authors are encouraged to see the
groups’ individual midwinter calls for details.
Panel submissions: In addition, the organizers are also inviting panel
proposals. These panel proposals should NOT be done through the online
abstract submission system. Instead, submissions for panels should be
sent to the relevant midwinter chair directly via email (see list of
participating AEJMC groups and the midwinter chair for each group
below). The deadline for panel submissions is the same as for abstract
submissions, December 1, 2019, 11:59 p.m. Central Time.
Panel submissions should include the panel title, a description of the
session’s focus, the issues to be discussed, and a list of panelists
(potential and confirmed), including affiliation. Proposals should not
exceed two double-spaced pages.
The University of Oklahoma is located in Norman, 20 miles south of
Oklahoma City, with easy access to the Will Rogers World Airport.
Details on conference registration, hotel accommodation and airport
transportation will be available at http://www.ou.edu/gaylord.
