Wildcard Session

Statement of Purpose: 

Wildcard sessions are intended to be experimental, creative, or exploratory sessions that address an area of interest that does not naturally fall within the purview of an existing Program Unit. These sessions offer members direct access to the Annual Meeting program outside of the normal Program Unit structure.

Call for Papers: 

Wildcard sessions are intended to be experimental, creative, or exploratory sessions that address an area of interest that does not naturally fall within the purview of an existing Program Unit. These sessions offer members direct access to the Annual Meeting program outside of the normal Program Unit structure.

Guidelines for Wildcard sessions:
• All Wildcard sessions are ninety-minutes in length and will be scheduled for Sunday afternoon at the Annual Meeting.
• Wildcard sessions are accepted through PAPERS only.
• Wildcard sessions must use one of the prearranged session proposal formats (papers session or roundtable).
• Make sure the wildcard session does not cover an area already covered by an existing Program Unit. If a proposal fits within an established Program Unit's mission, the proposal will be forwarded to that Unit. If a proposal is submitted as a Wildcard session and also to another Program Unit, it will be eliminated from consideration as a Wildcard.

The Program Committee evaluates all Wildcard Session proposals. Notification of program acceptance will be announced by April 1, 2017.
