As our 41st annual meeting, the APPAM 2019 Fall Research Conference will be a multi-disciplinary research conference attracting the highest quality research on a wide variety of important current and emerging policy and management issues.  The current political context underscores the value of bringing together researchers and practitioners with a wide range of perspectives to engage the evidence and discuss how best to improve public policy.  We hope that the theme, Rising to the Challenge: Engaging Diverse Perspectives on the Issues and Evidence, will encourage a conference with conversations that reach across disciplinary, methodological and ideological divides.  

This conversation will take place across 300+ educational programs in a variety of formats, including panels, roundtables, poster presentations, super sessions and special events.  Submissions will be accepted in fifteen (15) policy areas, and they are expected to cover a range of topics such as evidence-based decision making, labor migration, health and welfare policy, and the roles of race, gender, sexual orientation and disability in socioeconomic inequities.  We encourage individuals in all phases of their public policy careers - from students to institutional leaders with decades of contributions to the field - to submit proposals.  For a full list of policy areas and topics for each, please click here.
