2016 Conference

Current Year

The New York State Political Science Association invites proposals for panels or individual papers for our 2015 Annual Conference. Our 70th Annual Conference will be hosted by the State University of New York at New Paltz. University is located 90 miles north of New York City in the historic Hudson Valley. The campus offers beautiful views of the Shawangunk Mountains and easy access to outdoor recreation such as hiking, kayaking, climbing and biking as well as a wide variety of restaurants, specialty shops, historic sites, and local entertainment venues.

The conference provides an excellent venue for academics, researchers, students and professionals in private and public organizations to discuss issues and share their work related to political science and associated disciplines. We welcome proposals from history, philosophy, psychology, gender studies, economics, law, organizational studies, and sociology as well as interdisciplinary proposals. Conference highlights include NYSPSA awards for the best graduate student and faculty papers.

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 500 words. The abstract must describe the presentation's purpose, methods, data sources, existing literature and potential contributions to the field.

If you are proposing a full panel please note that individual papers must be accepted (that is, we will require information on the individual papers before a panel proposal can be accepted). Additionally, all proposed panels must have a minimum of three papers and a maximum of five.

The deadline for submissions is extended to November 15, 2015.
