Now Accepting #2016APPAM Caucus Submissions

We are now accepting proposals for caucus sessions at the 2016 APPAM Fall Research Conference. Details on submission requirements and process are listed below. Submissions will be accepted until  September 9, 2016 .

A caucus session is meant to prompt informal discussions on an emerging policy or management topic and is led by a moderator. These open discussions are designed to center around evolving research topics and invite feedback, questions, and promote discourse.

Caucuses are one hour long and should begin with the moderator giving a brief 10-minute introduction to the general topic and suggesting some questions, theories, or related information to spur discussion. Attendees are encouraged to respond to questions and comments by the moderator. Participants should feel free to raise their own questions for the group and suggest other perspectives and angles to be considered. Caucuses during the 2016 Fall Research Conference will take place during breakfast at 7:15 am on Saturday, November 5th.

For examples of caucus sessions, please check out the #2015APPAM listing.
