    Dear Meeting Organizer,

    I am interested in presenting at the 2017 ISA Meeting, but have not been able to find a Call for Papers or a submission timeline. I would appreciate any information on the submission process and required dates of submission (hopefully I have not missed the submission dates).

      Hi Wade:
      I remember you from our session last year. I’ve got a team of students helping me to get the Call for Papers out soon, but you don’t have to wait for that, just email me directly at The conference this year is titled, “Sociology in Action” and will be on Friday, November 17th (from about 9am-4pm, same as always) and will be held in the new University Commons Bldg at Millikin University in Decatur. More to come soon, we’re trying to get the website and registration process up and running right now, then call for papers, flyers, etc.
