Database Opens July 1; Proposals Due November 15

The Southwest Popular/American Culture Association (SWPACA) Presenter Database is scheduled to open July 1 for submissions for the 35th Annual conference, to be held February 19-22, 2014 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Veterans of the our conference know that the SWPACA has been at the forefront of conference technology for the last few years, utilizing a presenter database to increase efficacy in the proposal submission and review process, as well as to assist in creating a conference program. This year the database will once again be updated,  improving the experience for all users.

The database will open to users July 1 at:

As always, the SWPACA Area Chairs will practice rolling review of proposals, which means an individual submitting a proposal should receive a response within two weeks of submission.

UPDATE: Due to the overwhelming response today, with our database working overtime to handle the flood of submissions, the SWPACA executive team has decided to extend the submission period to November 15, 2013.

This will give those who have not decided to attend this year’s conference a chance to submit a paper/panel proposal!
