Southwestern Regional Conference Proposal Deadline

The Association for Business Communication Southwestern U.S. Region, in partnership with the Federation of Business Disciplines, is holding its yearly conference in Houston, Texas, USA from March 13–16, 2019. We invite you to submit a proposal for a presentation on your research or a best practice in teaching you would like to share. Full papers will be considered for the distinguished paper award. 

The deadline for abstracts/proposals submitted for a presentation is October 1, 2018. For your research to be considered for the distinguished paper award, you must also submit a completed paper by the submission deadline, October 1, 2018 to the conference link on the ABC website.

This is a great opportunity for you to work on interdisciplinary research with colleagues as it relates to communication because of the variety of disciplines FBD represents, noting that interdisciplinary research is part of the 2013 AACSB standards.  

This “conference within a conference” opportunity allows you to attend all ABC sessions, as well as sessions of the other eight affiliated business discipline organizations for one low registration price. While there, you can connect with colleagues old and new, and attend stimulating sessions. 

Research papers or position papers related to business communication in the following areas are encouraged:

 

Communication Technology

 

Technology and Education

 

 

Innovative Instructional Methods
