ATMAE and the IAJC invite members to submit proposal for their first ever joint conference scheduled October 7 - 9 in Louisville, Kentucky. Please be sure to read through the instructions before submitting your proposal. There are specific instructions outlined below for authors submitting proposals for ATMAE or for the IAJC programming.


All abstract proposals are selected for oral or poster presentation for ATMAE through a double-blind peer-review process by a review committee consisting of the Division and Focus Group leadership. The Authors' identities will not be known to the Reviewers, and the Reviewers will withhold their identity from the paper's Author.

There is a three-presentation limit for those listed as the primary presenter. Authors of abstracts accepted for oral presentation will receive an invitation to submit a full conference paper for publishing in ATMAE's Annual Conference proceedings. Authors of posters accepted for presentation are not eligible to submit a full conference paper.



We encourage members to submit a proposal for a conference workshop or panel session that is aimed at providing content or training on topics of interest to our members and industry. The proposals will be reviewed by the 2020 Annual Conference Committee for acceptance in the conference schedule.


If your abstract is accepted for presentation for IAJC programming at the conference, you will be invited to submit a related full paper, which will be reviewed for journal publication in the IAJC journals (journal details available through the IAJC website:

NOTE: A full paper is NOT required for you to attend and present an abstract. However, you must attend and present your work in order for your accepted full paper to be published in a journal after the conference.


All named presenters for all programming must register by September 4, 2020, and attend the conference. After September 4, 2020, the presenters listed but not registered will be removed from the program. Only presenters are listed in the onsite program book. At least one name author of the paper must be present the underlying presentation at the conference. All presenters must register and pay all fees (or submit proof of a Purchase Order from your school) by September 4, 2020. The "Bill Me" option does not meet this requirement. Registrations cancelled on or before Tuesday, September 8, 2020, will be refunded all fees minus a $50 processing fee; Registrations cancelled after Tuesday, September 8, 2020, will not be refunded.
