NYSPSA prohibits multiple paper submissions. Only one paper submission per person will be accepted. However, a paper presenter may also serve as a chair or discussant on another panel or roundtable. Questions should be directed to the conference Program Chair or appropriate Section Chair (see below).
If you are proposing a paper, please submit an abstract of no more than 200 words. If you are proposing a full panel please note that all proposed panels should have a minimum of three papers and a maximum of five.
I look forward to seeing you next year.
