108th ACSA Annual Meeting

OPEN: Reinvented Annual Meeting

Conference Notice: COVID-19

In light of the recent public health updates regarding COVID-19, the ACSA Board of Directors has decided not to hold the 108th ACSA Annual Meeting in San Diego next week. Recognizing the scholarly work that is shared throughout the conference is important and timely, we are exploring alternate options to deliver the conference content by virtual means. We regret having to make this decision, but determined we must prioritize the health and safety of our conference attendees.

Located in the heart of the historic Gaslamp Quarter, the Omni San Diego puts you close to the city’s most popular tourist attractions. Explore Balboa Park, take a harbor cruise or catch a professional baseball game at Petco Park.


Situated at U.S.-Mexico border, San Diego is the ideal location to explore the spatial, social, and ecological ramifications of borders. Most events will take place at the Omni San Diego, with tours and workshops exploring the surrounding area and crossing the border to Tijuana, Mexico.
