Deadline April 30, 2019

Website | Applications


The submission portal for the 2020 CAA Annual Conference in Chicago, February 12-15, is now open. We invite proposals for sessions, lightning rounds, poster sessions, and workshops from visual arts professionals working across the field in all disciplines. The CAA Annual Conference is the largest gathering of visual arts professionals that celebrates and advances the accomplishments of members and provides opportunities to share research and creative work. Each year we offer a full breadth of sessions representing the vast range of scholarship and practice of our members, as well as professional development and art-making workshops, meetings, receptions, and more. 

New for 2020, CAA will debut Lightning Rounds. These short, lively presentations allow individuals to address key subjects related to their area of study or practice. Talks are brief and require the speaker to make their point clearly and concisely. Individual presentations may consist of up to 20 slides and are limited to seven minutes in length.
