We are delighted to invite you to submit a paper or other proposal to the NAAPE 2023 annual conference, which takes place from Friday, October 27th to Sunday, October 29th. NAAPE 2023 will be held at the beautiful University of St. Mary of the Lake, just outside of Chicago. Submissions are due by July 1st, 2023 at 11:59PM CT (UTC -5). Registration is currently open with early bird registration rates for those who would like to register early. Registration pricing includes accommodations as well as all meals, snacks, hors d'oeuvres, coffee, tea and alcoholic beverages throughout the conference.

As in previous years, NAAPE accepts any length of paper, but we prefer papers that are less than 14,000 words. The papers may employ any well-established style guideline so long as it is used consistently throughout the paper. Additionally, papers may be formatted in a standard article manner or as a book chapter. NAAPE accepts submissions in the English, Spanish and French language, but presentations are expected to be given in English. NAAPE is pleased to accept submissions that are simultaneously under review or in press at academic journals, but we cannot accept papers that have been published prior to submission. In addition to full papers, NAAPE also accepts panel proposals and author-meets-critics proposals. The link to the submission form is
