The 2023 Annual Meeting will include guaranteed sessions sponsored by caucuses and affiliate societies and general sessions. 

Call for Session Proposals (deadline passed)

The Program Committee invites proposals for panels and roundtables, as well as sessions in other formats and pre-conference workshops. In addition to explaining what the session would contribute to the Annual Meeting, special proposals should include a detailed description of the format and logistical requirements (e.g., technology, type of meeting space, particular days/times); an estimate of additional costs to participants or to ASECS (if any); and an explanation of how people would be chosen to participate (if it is not open to all conference attendees). If the event is a workshop that would have a facilitator or main presenter(s), provide a brief description of their expertise. The Program Committee may contact proposers for additional information before deciding on whether special sessions will be included on the Annual Meeting program. Proposals that cannot be accommodated in St. Louis may be considered for later Annual Meetings. If you have any questions, please contact the ASECS Business Office at
