2012 Boston Conference

The Northeastern Political Science Association will hold its 44th annual meeting on November 15-17, 2012 at the Omni Parker House Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. We invite paper, panel, and roundtable submissions from academics, graduate students, journalists, and practitioners. Proposals for papers, panels, or to serve as a chair and/or discussant must be submitted by June 15, 2012 through the NPSA submission website at Once on the submission website, create a username and password and follow the instructions (past account may no longer exist).  E-mail submissions will not be accepted.


NPSA 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 as a roundtable participant. If a faculty member sponsors an undergraduate research paper, such paper does not count as the single submission and the faculty member may submit a separate paper to present.  

Questions should be directed to the appropriate Program Section Chair (see Call for Participation menu on the right) or the conference Program Chair. All conference information is on this website which is regularly updated.
