About the Annual Conference: 

In order to remain a vibrant discipline and meet the topography of the current job market, the discipline of sociology must engage in more effective translation, dissemination, and implementation of its data, methods, and theory. AACS is dedicated to advancing sociological application and practice both within and beyond academia. We invite attendance at our annual meeting, open to all social and behavioral scientists and business, industry, non-profit, and government professionals

We offer professional development workshops, panels, paper and poster sessions, and student paper and problem-solving competitions. Consider leading a professional development workshop, panel, roundtable, or poster session.  Proposals that address teaching with an applied focus are also invited.  Do you have a project to submit for the Social Design Award?  Learn More.  Program participants are invited to submit their presentations to the Journal of Applied Social Science, AACS’s Official peer-refereed journal, for publication.

AACS has a reputation as a student-friendly Association.  Our annual meetings offer mentoring opportunities for students.  Students who attend AACS Annual Meetings are encouraged to submit their papers for the Undergraduate and Graduate Student Paper Competition.  Student teams are welcome to participate in the Client Problem-solving Competition.

Presentation Submission Deadline: June 1, 2020.

Registration Deadline for Presenters: August 14, 2020.
