We are pleased to officially inform you that the AERA 2020 Annual Meeting Call for Submissions is now available on the AERA website. We encourage you to consider a paper or session submission to a division, special interest group (SIG), or committee that best aligns with your research interests. The deadline for submissions is 11:59 p.m., Pacific Time, on July 10, 2019.
The 2020 Annual Meeting will be held on April 17-21, 2020, in San Francisco, California. The overall theme is “The Power and Possibilities for the Public Good When Researchers and Organizational Stakeholders Collaborate.”
We hope that you will consider a submission in response to the Call. The theme advanced by AERA President Vanessa Siddle Walker, and Annual Meeting Co-Chairs Sheryl J. Croft and Michelle A. Purdy, invites us to examine the possibility of new, previously uncontemplated research questions; discuss different methodological approaches to old problems; and collectively enable research findings to inform legislation and policy in ways that may exceed the influence of individual researchers.
The last AERA Annual Meeting in San Francisco was in 2013. We are now returning once again to create an Annual Meeting that will attract broad participation worldwide. This meeting will provide an opportunity to share research, assess the state of our knowledge, and explore how our work can become more relevant to diverse communities, publics, practitioners, and policy makers.
Please submit and join us in April 2020 in San Francisco.
