24th Annual AABSS Conference

American Association of Behavioral and Social Sciences

JUNE 14–15, 2021

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 24th annual year as 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.

Virtual Conference

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, AABSS will be held as a "virtual conference," during JUNE 14-15, 2021. Both pre-recorded lecture sessions as well as poster sessions will be posted on the conference website in an open-view format for those who register.

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.

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 and your poster or lecture video will be placed on the website for the conference. Please do not submit the same proposal to multiple conferences. If it is not accepted for this conference and is appropriate for one of the other conferences associated with AABSS, we will inform you of this and request your permission to move it.

Proposal Submission Deadline is APRIL 30, 2021.


Presenters of both lecture and poster session presentations may submit their written papers for journal publication consideration in the printed, peer-reviewed Journal of Behavioral and Social Sciences (JBSS).
