2017 Annual Conference Submissions Record!

posted by CAA — Apr 26, 2016

Thank you to all our CAA members and conference submitters for the hard work in pulling together sessions and papers for the 2017 Annual Conference in New York, February 15-18. We are happy to report that we received over 850 submissions! This is a record number for CAA and none of this would be possible without the support and interest of our members, scholars, and practitioners in the visual arts. We thank you also for submitting materials in the shorter submission timeframe that came along with the changes to the Annual Conference .

Now begins the unenviable task of reviewing and selecting sessions and papers, the timeline for which you will find below.

  • June 3 – Annual Conference Committee meets to select sessions and papers
  • June 20 – Notification sent regarding approved sessions and papers
  • July 1 – Call for Participation for approved sessions soliciting contributors announced
  • August 30 – Paper titles and abstracts due to chairs of sessions soliciting contributors

The 105th CAA Annual Conference will be held at the Hilton New York Midtown from Wednesday, February 15 through Saturday, February 18. Registration opens in early fall 2016. CAA’s Annual Conference consists of four days and hundreds of presentations, panel discussions, workshops, special events, and exhibitions exploring the study, practice, and history of art and visual culture. As the best-attended international forum in the visual arts, the Annual Conference offers an unparalleled opportunity to expand your professional network, meet with potential employers, and strengthen your skills in a professional-development workshop, mentoring  session, or portfolio review.
