The American Association of Behavioral and Social Sciences (AABSS) holds an annual conference that brings together scholars from around the U.S. and abroad in order to present scholarship related to a wide variety of contexts, including theory, practice, empirical research, and conceptual advancement. It is a juried conference, meaning that presentation proposals undergo peer-review prior to potential acceptance for presentation. We are in the 20th annual year and expect a robust conference with ample opportunities to exchange theoretical ideas, share research results, help advance practice, make collaborative connections, and learn from one another’s scholarship.
20th Annual American Association of Behavioral and Social Sciences Conference
January 30–31, 2017
Call for Papers
We invite submissions for potential presentation at this year’s AABSS conference from a broad range of topics related to the social and behavioral sciences. Strands may include empirical or theoretical scholarship as well as research methodology evaluation, meta-analyses, critical literature reviews, and topics related to applied practice that are grounded in scholarship. Where possible, topics will be grouped together for presentation within similar tracks.
Submit a proposal that includes a title, an abstract of not more than 150 words, and a summary that does not exceed more than 600 words. If the proposal is accepted for presentation, then the title and abstract will be included in the conference program.
Proposal Submission Deadline is November 19, 2016.
All presented papers are eligible for submission to the Journal of Behavioral and Social Sciences (JBSS), and all submitted papers will be peer-reviewed for potential publication.
LocationThe AABSS historically has held the annual conference in Las Vegas and this year is sponsored by the University of Nevada at Las Vegas (UNLV) College of Liberal Arts. In addition to the scholarly connections and learning that occurs, presenters also are able to enjoy a relaxing atmosphere and, for some, to escape the cold winter weather for a few days. The conference will be held at The Flamingo Hotel which is located in the center of the Vegas strip, directly across the street from Caesar’s Palace. We ask that all conference attenders stay at the hotel, as we have secured a very low rate of $49 per night (plus tax & fees). The Flamingo Hotel is in walking distance of the major Las Vegas attractions.
