Collaborative Research Network (CRN) Sessions

CRNs are welcome to submit an unlimited number of panels. All submissions need to be submitted through the submission software following the instructions listed for each type of session. CRN’s may sponsor any type of session except the Plenary Sessions and Professional Development Panels (previously known as Service Panels). CRNs are welcome to submit as many panels as they like. However, we can guarantee that no more than four will be scheduled non-concurrently with the other panels the CRN submits. To make this request, please forward which panels should be scheduled non-concurrently to Megan Warren at by December 31st, 2016. These requests must be received from a CRN Organizer. 

Upon review of the individual submitted papers that are not assigned to sessions, the Program Committee will advise CRN Coordinators about the papers that contain keywords relevant to their CRN. This will allow Coordinators the option to build any of those unassigned papers into their CRN sponsored sessions.

CRN business meeting requests - The Executive Office will email CRN Coordinators regarding scheduling their business meeting the beginning of March 2017.
