The Northeastern Political Science Association will hold its 49th annual meeting at the Loews Hotel in Philadelphia, PA, November 9-12, 2017. We invite proposals for papers, roundtables, and competed panels in all subfields of political science. Please submit proposals no later than June 30, 2017 by following through the NPSA submission site. Once on the submission website, create a username and password and follow the instructions. (This account has to be recreated every year) Submissions by email will not be accepted..

We hope you will consider participating in our annual meeting as a paper presenter, panel organizer, panel chair or discussant, or simply by attending.  You will be joining hundreds of other political scientists from all parts of the world committed to enhancing and expanding our knowledge of politics.

Please note, 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; faculty may serve in an additional role as a mentor for undergraduate research.

Any pre-formed panel that is submitted must have a minimum of 4 papers in order to be considered.

Please email questions to the conference Program Chair Lanethea Mathews-Schultz or to the relevant Section Chair.

The NPSA will award TRAVEL GRANTS by lottery to two graduate students who register for and participate in the annual meeting. Names will be selected at the conference; each student will receive a check for $150 to help offset expenses associated with attending the conference.

Thank you for your interest in the NPSA. We look forward to seeing you in Philadelphia!
