2017 AERA Annual Meeting Call for Submissions Now Open

From Thursday’s inbox…

Dear AERA Members and Past Annual Meeting Attendees,With a little under a month before the deadline, we encourage you to submit your paper or session submission for the 2017 AERA Annual Meeting.  Submitting early ensures a smooth online submission process, and allows you to check the accuracy and status of your submission.

The 2017 Annual Meeting will be held Thursday, April 27 – Monday, May 1 in San Antonio, Texas. Vivian L. Gadsden, AERA President, Angela E. Arzubiaga, Annual Meeting Program Co-Chair, James Earl Davis, Annual Meeting Program Co-Chair, and the 2017 Program Committee, are pleased to announce this year’s Annual Meeting Theme: “Knowledge to Action: Achieving the Promise of Equal Educational Opportunity”. Now is the time to advance a paper or session submission for consideration by a division, special interest group, or committee and to volunteer as a chair or discussant.

Deadline for Paper and Session Submissions is July 22
Please review the Call for Submissions as it contains important information about this year’s Annual Meeting theme and submission requirements. Please log in to advance a paper or session submission. After you login, click ‘My AERA’ at the top of the page. On the ‘My AERA’ page, scroll down to the 2017 Annual Meeting and click ‘Online Program Portal’.

In preparing your submission, please pay special attention to the six elements that must be addressed in a narrative paper even if the results, conclusions, or findings are not complete or final at the time of the submission. Also, please indicate your preferred type of session and willingness to present in alternative formats at the time of submission.

Be Sure to Volunteer to Serve as a Chair or Discussant by August 31
There is still time to volunteer to be a Chair or Discussant at the 2017 Annual Meeting.  First, review the Call for Volunteer Session Chairs and Discussants and consider volunteering. Second, login to volunteer as a chair or discussant. The quality of the AERA Annual Meeting depends on education researchers with appropriate expertise who serve as chairs and discussants for paper sessions and roundtables.

Please contact the AERA Meetings Team at or (202) 238-3200 with any questions. We look forward to your participation in an innovative and valuable 2017 Annual Meeting.
