The General Call for Participation is now open for AAA/CASCA’s 2023 Annual Meeting taking place in Toronto, November 15-19. Utilizing the theme Transitions, this year’s meeting will once again be hybrid with options for both in-person and virtual attendance. We invite research presentations in a variety of formats, including in-person and online – use our interactive tool to select your presentation type. The deadline for proposals to be started in the Portal is Wednesday, March 22. The deadline for the proposals to be completed is Wednesday, March 29 – 11:59 PM ET.

Session Organizer Responsibilities

We’re committed to creating an Annual Meeting and anthropological community that are supportive, inclusive, and conducive to anthropological research. This year, we are asking session organizers to help us fulfill this commitment. You as an organizer have these responsibilities, which will begin the day you start to organize, and end with your session at the Annual Meeting.  Learn more.

NOTE: Our submission site no longer requires speakers/participants on group sessions to complete their portion of proposals. Organizers of group proposals complete the entire submission on the group’s behalf, which involves collecting all pertinent information from your speakers ahead of time.
