Recording and Sharing Policy:*

ACR Conferences provide a forum for scholars to share unpublished work in progress that has not yet received the full scrutiny of a journal review process. Taking photos of slides or otherwise recording, duplicating, or sharing voice or visual content requires the explicit and advance permission of the presenter.


ACR Doctoral Symposium (Ph.D. Students Only)

The Doctoral Symposium will be held on Thursday, October 11, 2018, 8:15am to 5:00pm. The schedule will be available to registered participants in the early fall.
