ACSA111 Annual

Call for Special Sessions

Submission Deadline: June 8, 2022

The ACSA Annual Meeting Committee invites faculty, researchers, and practitioners to share their knowledge and best practices through panel sessions and workshops. Proposals may address the conference theme IN COMMONS or other topics. The committee welcomes submissions in all architecture research and practice areas.

SPECIAL FOCUS SESSIONS

Special Focus Sessions are 90-minute concurrent sessions that provide a forum for issues or a critical discussion of a focused topic. They typically involve a panel of two or more individuals. Other formats for presenting and discussing a topic with the audience may be proposed. One session organizer is responsible for submitting the proposal, organizing the group, moderating the session and leading the discussion.

  • Title
  • Abstract 100-word, This will be used for session promotion and program
  • Outline 300-word, Include the session objective: outlining the areas covered, the audience, the format for delivery
  • Four (4) Learning Objectives
  • Presenters’ Biographies 300-words

All submissions will be reviewed by the 111th Annual Meeting Committee. Selection is based on session clarity, relevance, and contribution to the discipline of architecture. Accepted sessions will require all presenters to pay full conference registration for the Annual Meeting in order to be included in the conference.

WORKSHOPS

Workshops are interactive sessions that provide participants targeted skills, knowledge, or interactions that they can use beyond the conference. Workshops should be designed to collaboratively explore a particular issue or deliver an educational tutorial on a particular theme. An individual or a team may propose a workshop, provided one individual is the team’s lead or organizer. Workshops may be full-day (8-hours), half-day (4-hours), or 90-minute concurrent sessions. They may use a variety of formats (e.g., presentations, working sessions, tours) to engage a defined audience of attendees. Architecture faculty comprise the primary audience for the Annual Meeting. However, we welcome proposals for workshops that might attract part-time faculty, practitioners, and students.

Submission Requirements: 

  • Title
  • Abstract 100-word, This will be used for workshop promotion and program
  • Outline 300-word. Include the workshop objective: outlining the areas covered, the audience for the workshop, the format for delivery

Accepted sessions will require all presenters to pay full conference registration for the Annual Meeting in order to be included in the conference. 

Tours

Tours will lead a group of attendees to sites in the St. Louis area. They can be sites of architectural and/or historical importance or focus on a theme. Past tours have focused on local and/or unique architecture, affordable housing, community and design-build projects. Tours may be proposed as: lunch tours (2-hours & includes a quick meal option), half-day (4-hours), or full-day (8-hours & includes a meal option).
