The AEJMC Midwinter Conference is scheduled for March 5-7, 2010 at the
Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication (University of
Oklahoma) in Norman, Oklahoma. The location offers participants many winter
diversions outside the conference activities, including world-class museums
and art galleries.
Paper submissions: Authors should submit research paper proposals consisting
of a 300 to 500-word abstract by email to the midwinter chair of the group
they wish to submit to. Please keep in mind that you can only submit any
given paper abstract to one of the groups participating in the conference –
submitting the same paper abstract to several groups is not allowed. Do not
submit full papers. The abstracts should give a clear sense of the scope of
the research and the method of inquiry. If researchers have completed their
projects by the submission deadline, paper abstracts should also include
research conclusions. Once their paper abstracts have been accepted, authors
must submit complete research papers (not exceeding 30 pages) to the
discussant of their session on the program. Discussants should receive full
papers at least two weeks before the conference. Keep in mind that papers
presented at this conference are also eligible for presentation at the AEJMC
national convention. Authors are encouraged to use the midwinter conference
as an opportunity to get feedback on their research, improve and finalize it
for submission to the national conference.
Panel submissions: Panel organizers should submit proposals to the midwinter
chair of the group they wish to present the panel to. Panel submissions
should include the panel title, a description of the session’s focus, the
issues to be discussed, and a list of panelists (potential and confirmed),
including affiliation.
Format: Identify the paper’s author(s) or panel’s organizer(s) on the title
page only and include the mailing address, telephone number and e-mail
address of the person to whom inquiries should be addressed. The title
should be on the first page of the text and on running heads on each page of
text. Include your abstract or proposal as an attachment (saved with your
last name as file name) in a standard word-processing format and email it to
the relevant midwinter chair. Also, ensure that you remove any identifying
information from your document (with the exception of the title page).
Deadline: All submissions should reach the appropriate division/interest
group/commission’s midwinter paper chair (see below) by December 1, 2009.
