ACSP’s 60th Annual Conference will be hosted by the University of Toronto, Ryerson University, and York University on November 4–8, 2020, in Toronto, Canada. APA will be sponsoring the event. In addition to paper sessions, posters and roundtables, the ACSP National Conference Committee invites submitters to consider two unique aspects of the upcoming conference:

  1. 2020 Focus Event: Racial Equity and Justice in Urban Planning Research and Education in the Face of Racialized Inequality
  2. ACSP-AESOP Joint Sessions: Pre-organized sessions, roundtables, or papers with submissions from both ACSP and Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP) authors are encouraged

The call for abstracts and sessions is available now. The ACSP website is now open for submissions. The deadline to submit an abstract is Tuesday, March 10, 2020. Notification of accepted or rejected entries should be shared in the second week of May.
