Poster Sessions (APPLY!)

The Southern Region of ACDA would like to invite the membership to submit a proposal for the poster session at the Southern Region Conference in Mobile, AL, March 11-14, 2020. The submission should be an abstract of a completed project that has not been shown at another conference. The call is open to all members with a serviceable project (teachers, professors, or graduate students) relating to choral music or pedagogy.

Researchers chosen for this presentation will be required to display a poster describing the research, and also be available during the session to answer any questions posed by attendees. The research should focus on choral music, choral music education, and can include any aspect related to choral music research such as: rehearsal techniques, best practices, performance practice, conducting, repertoire choice and other related fields. The poster session allows viewers to view scholarship prior to publication, allowing the most up-to-date research to be shown.

Research submitted for presentation must comply with the following guidelines:

  • the research should not have been presented at another major conference;
  • if the data have been presented in whole or substantive part in any forum or at previous research sessions, a statement specifying particulars of the above must be included with the submission; and
  • the research may have been submitted but must not be in print or in press prior to the submission deadline of the conference.

The projects may vary in research techniques (quantitative, qualitative, etc.), but must include more than a simple review of literature for consideration. Manuscripts of research representing descriptive or experimental studies must conform to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, Sixth Edition (2010). Writers of other types of studies may submit manuscripts that conform to either, A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations 8th Edition (2013) or the Chicago Manual of Style 16th or 17th edition (2010/2017).

The Submission Window for Collegiate Poster Sessions is currently open. Applications will be accepted until December 15, 2019.

Applicants will be notified of their submission results no later than January 5, 2020. Please direct all questions to Dr. Phillip Stockton, Student Activities R&R Chair for the Southern Region at pstockton@acdasouthern.org.
