CfP: 2023 ASEEES Annual Convention, Deadline March 15

Call for Proposals – 55th ASEEES Annual Convention, Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of ASEEES
October 19-20, 2023, Virtual Convention
November 30 – December 3, 2023, Philadelphia Marriott Downtown
Convention Theme: Decolonization

ASEEES is accepting proposal submissions for the 2023 ASEEES Annual Convention with the deadline of March 15. We will host an in-person convention in Philadelphia in November/December following a smaller virtual convention in October. In the proposal submission process, you will be presented with an option to apply to either the in-person or the virtual convention. The number of sessions for the virtual convention will be limited. We are unable to accommodate the option to move from an in-person to virtual or virtual to in-person format. We thank you for understanding this constraint when submitting proposals.

All session participants must agree to participate in-person or virtually. Hybrid sessions during the in-person convention will not be permitted. Technical requirements for hybrid sessions at the in-person convention venue are prohibitively expensive.

NEW as of 2023: Individual paper proposals will ONLY be considered for the VIRTUAL CONVENTION due to the high withdrawal rate of individual paper presenters for the in-person convention. If you wish to submit a proposal for the in-person convention, you must do so as part of a panel proposal.

The Proposal Submission is now open: 

ALL  panel, roundtable, lightning round, individual paper submissions are due by March 15.
All film screening submissions and affiliate group meeting requests are due by April 1.

  • Please review the rules for participation and submission process carefully before you start your submission.

  • The session categories have been changed for 2023. Please review.

  • Gender diversity on panels, roundtables, and lightning rounds is strongly encouraged.

  • Sessions with participants of diverse racial, ethnic, and national backgrounds are strongly encouraged.

  • If you postponed a panel or roundtable that was accepted for ASEEES 2022, you must resubmit your proposal for the 2023 Convention.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Because ASEEES moved its member database to a new Member Site in 2023, please make sure you set up your login credentials for to the new site now and renew your membership. Also, those who have never been a member even if they have participated in past conventions must create a new profile in the new site if they plan to participate in the 2023 Convention. See Instructions on how to create a profile. Please DO NOT wait till the last minute as the data sync between the members site and the convention site is not instantaneous and may require up to 24 hours to sync.

Panelists Wanted Board: We STRONGLY encourage all interested participants to form, or become part of, a panel proposal. Individual paper submissions have a MUCH LOWER chance of being accepted than panel proposals. To assist in the process of forming panels, we have created the Panel/Paper Wanted Board.  If you are looking for a panel to join or a paper presenter for your panel, please review the proposals on the online board. You can also indicate your willingness to volunteer as chair or discussant on this form.

Membership Requirement: ALL individual paper submitters and panel/roundtable/lightning round organizers in the US and abroad MUST be ASEEES members in order to submit a proposal. Please review the membership rules for participation. Renew your membership today.

With any inquiries about the convention, please contact Margaret Manges, the Convention Manager, at  If you need assistance logging into the ASEEES members site or are experiencing other technical difficulties, please contact us.
