The organizers aim for the AABSS to be a well-planned event and one that best facilitates scholarship dissemination, advancement of quality practice, and professional engagement.  For 19 years, we have hosted successful annual conferences and anticipate that 2017 will be the same.  You may have questions at some point in the consideration or submission process; we welcome inquiries, and will be glad to provide prompt replies to questions within the reasonable context of our normal schedules.  Please route e-mails to the conference director [Dr. Michael Firmin, Professor of Psychology at Cedarville University in Cedarville, Ohio] at
