The submissions portal for the 2020 CAA Annual Conference in Chicago, February 12-15 is now open.  

CAA invites proposals for sessions, lightning rounds, poster sessions, and workshops from visual arts professionals working across the field in all disciplines. 

The CAA Annual Conference is the largest gathering of art historians, artists, designers, curators, arts administrators, museum professionals, and others in the visual arts.  

Submit Your Proposal

Proposals must be submitted by April 30, 2019. 

Please note, this year individuals will have the opportunity to submit proposals for several types of opportunities at the Annual Conference before the April 30 deadline. Please review the full proposals page to decide which type of submission best fits your needs. 

The Annual Conference Committee members reviewed over 1,000 submissions for the 2019 Annual Conference. They take into account subject areas and themes that arise from accepted proposals to present as a broad and diverse a program as possible. Last year the committee selected roughly 300 sessions and it must, at times, make difficult decisions on submissions of high merit. 

Please contact Member Services at or at 212-691-1051, ext. 1 with any questions.
