Annual Meeting Participation Guide

Please read through all sections of our Annual Meeting Participation Guide. Most questions regarding presenting and chairing are answered in these three, short pages, as well as a set of policies to keep our community a safe space for all.

Section 1: Code of Conduct

All participants of the ASA Annual Meeting are expected to adhere to the ASA Anti-Harassment policy. A claim of a violation of the policy can be made via this secure website. Reports of violation of the Anti-Harassment policy will be subject to the intake and investigation process as outlined in the ASA Policies and Procedures.
Please read the full African Studies Association Anti-Harassment Policy here.

Section 2: Privacy and Usage Policy

All participants should read the full privacy and usage policy for the 2022 Annual Meeting. Keynote events will be recorded in full, and subsequently posted to publicly accessible platforms such as YouTube. Please remember that all content, images, and data shared by presenters at the Annual Meeting are intended for presentation only, and are not to be filmed, reproduced, or distributed to the public or press. The ASA is not responsible for unauthorized recordings but reserves the right to restrict anyone who records sessions without permission from accessing future ASA events, Annual Meetings, and other programming.

Section 3: Participant Guidelines

Our Annual Meeting participant guidelines might seem familiar, but they contain important updates for presenters, chairs, discussants, and audience members. Please read through our short set of guidelines to ensure a successful Annual Meeting!

CFP Submission Guidelines

Before submitting to the Call for Co-Panelists: Assemble Your Session or submitting directly to the 2022 ASA CFP platform, please read through the newly updated 2022 Submission Guidelines. These guidelines include detailed instructions for each submission category as well as registration information and key deadlines. In order for a proposal to be considered by the Program Committee, these submission guidelines must be followed.

Please note: If you deferred a proposal in 2020 or entirely withdrew, you must resubmit your proposal to the CFP to indicate your intention to present on this year’s program. Deferred proposals will be automatically accepted by our Program Committee and placed on the program.
