American Society of Criminology Accepting Submissions for Presentations for Annual Conference (3/24)

The American Society of Criminology (ASC) is now accepting submissions for their 78th Annual Meeting. The meeting will be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from November 15-18, 2023. The theme this year: Seeking Justice: Reconciling with our Past, Reimagining the Future

All Annual Meeting details & information can be found on the Annual Meeting Website.

You are invited to submit abstracts for an Individual Paper Presentation; Panel of 4 Papers with a Coherent Theme or Author Meets Critic Session. For more details about these submission types, see the Call for Papers. The deadline to submit is March 24th, 2023.

I would like to encourage you to consider submitting an abstract in Area VII - Non-Criminal Justice Responses to Crime & Delinquency and Sub-Area # 87 -University - Prison Educational Initiatives. These panels will maximize substantive cohesion within the session and it's a great way to build relationships with colleagues in your area.

All submissions must be submitted on-line through the ASC submission website. The link can also be found on the Annual Meeting site. *Please note: the ASC submission site requires you to create a new username and password for 2023. It is NOT the same log-in as the ASC membership portal or where you pay your registration fees.

A typical abstract will summarize, in one paragraph of 200 words or less, the major aspects of your research, including: 1) the purpose of the study and the research problem(s) you investigate; 2) the design of the study; 3) major findings of your analysis; and 4) a brief summary of your interpretations and conclusions. Although not all abstracts will conform to this format, they should all contain enough information to frame the problem and orient the conclusions. Abstracts will be made public to all meeting attendees through the ASC program app.

Please understand that our meetings have grown quite large. Thus, ASC cannot honor personal preferences for the day and time of presentations.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please first consult the annual meeting website for Frequently Asked Questions and/or Guidelines for Annual Meeting Participants. If you still have questions, please do not hesitate to email
