Annual Conference Submissions Now Being Accepted

As co-chairs of ABC’s 81st annual international conference, we look forward to welcoming you to Albuquerque, New Mexico October 19-22, 2016!

In keeping with this year’s conference theme, we invite you to submit proposals to share approaches to enchant and engage stakeholders in teaching, research, and service in business communication.

We invited proposals for the following presentation types:

  • Individual or group panel sessions
  • Poster sessions, for one-on-one discussion of your work with ABC colleagues
  • Research Roundtables
  • Pre--conference Workshops

We are pleased to also offer 2 new session types for this year’s conference: virtual presentations and Spanish.  If you are not able to attend the conference in person but would like to present, we invite you to submit a virtual presentation.  We will also have limited session slots for presentations in Spanish.

In addition, we will be asking for volunteers for peer reviews and peer mentoring as well as for volunteers to help out with virtual presentations at the conference site in Albuquerque.  Stay tuned for more information on how to volunteer.

For complete conference details, deadlines for submissions, and more information on how to submit your proposal, please visit

We look forward to receiving your proposals, celebrating your work, and hosting this year’s conference at the Hotel Albuquerque at Old Town!
