The call for papers and posters is OPEN and will remain open until 11:59 PM EDT the 28th of October (Friday). You will find an alphabetical list of the proposed sessions (called “Tracks” in OCS) under the Program tab of this website. When you click on a session and you will be taken to the abstract for the session. If you would like to read all of the abstracts, you can find them at the bottom of the page or you can download a PDF of the abstracts. If you do not find a session that fits your proposed paper, please use the General Papers session. If you are proposing a poster, please select the General Poster session. Given the various formats of the proposed sessions, there will not be a standard length of a proposed paper. You will be working on that directly with the session organizer (track director). Please indicate the corresponding author if there is more than one author. The CAA allows an individual to be the corresponding author on only one paper, and the corresponding author must be a member of CAA International before the conference begins. The corresponding author does not necessarily have to be the first author. You can serve as non-corresponding author on multiple papers and can serve in other capacities (i.e., session organizer, roundtable discussant, lighting/flash talk presenter, poster presenter, etc…). It is expected, except in special circumstances, that the corresponding author be the person who presents the paper at the conference.
Please go to the OCS website to log-in and submit your paper/poster abstract. The link above should take you directly to the submission page. You can also click on the Submissions/Registration tab above. You will need to log-in, go to User Home, click on CAA 2017 and then look for the Submission link at the bottom of the page under the Conference Information header. You can select your session from the Track drop-down menu.
Each abstract should be no more 250 words including session title, author names, affiliations, and email addresses and 3 – 5 keywords. Remember, the official language of the conference is English and all submissions should be in English. If English is not your first language, it is strongly suggested that you have a fluent English speaker review your abstract before submission.
