2019 Call For Participation

We are pleased to announce the Call for Participation for the 2019 Association for Applied and Clinical Sociology Annual Meeting, October 17-19 in Portland, Oregon!

Theme: “The Profession of Sociological Practice.”

In the last quarter century, applied and clinical sociologists have marshaled significant momentum  to “professionalize” sociological practice.  Join sociologists who serve the public in sundry occupations in the academic and non-academic workplace and professional marketplace.  Open to all sociologists, social and behavioral scientists, and professionals who use social and behavioral science in business and industry, government, and academia.  AACS Annual Meetings attract practicing sociologists and other professionals from around the world who know how to make a difference.

We don’t just present “papers” at AACS –  we look for innovation and creativity in content and presentation form.  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.

AACS pre-conference professional development workshops are available on Thursday afternoon for a modest additional charge.  A non-refundable $50 deposit is due with your submission.  Registration includes the welcome reception, continental breakfasts, and keynote and presidential banquets.

Deadline: June 1, 2019. For more information, please visit AACS at http://www.aacsnet.net/, and explore the “Conferences” tab.
