2022 Doctoral Symposium: Empowering Students to Create Meaningful Change
The Doctoral Symposium will be held on Thursday, October 20, 2022, 8:30am to 4:45pm. The schedule will be available to registered participants in the early fall. The theme for the symposium is "Empowering Students to Create Meaningful Change," and the day will be centered on professional development, mentorship, and forging meaningful connections between doctoral students and faculty. For more information, please visit:

Due to space constraints, registration for the Doctoral Symposium will be limited to the first 200 students who register.

Please select the ONE substantive domain area that you are most interested in
The doctoral consortium will include a networking lunch session with leading consumer researchers from around the world. For this session, you will join one or two faculty members and an "affinity group" of fellow students who have similar interests, questions, or discussion topics in mind. You can ask for feedback on your research, or seek answers to questions related to the field, careers, job market, etc. To help us get started and to facilitate the formation of lunch groups, we would like you to write down in the space below three bits of info: 1) your key interests as a scholar, 2) any discussion topics you would like to share, 3) any questions that you might have for these leaders in our field. This is truly your chance to ask anything! If you think of additional questions or discussion topics after you have completed this registration, feel free to email them to either Nicole Mead ( or Lawrence Williams (

ACR Commitment to Conference Safety and Inclusiveness

ACR reminds our members, participants, and stakeholders: Our conferences are convened for the purposes of sharing research, developing knowledge, and promoting career development for all. The harassment of others, especially those where an asymmetry of power exists (such as junior colleagues, doctoral students, or conference staff), undermines the principles of scholarship at the heart of our activities and is inconsistent with our ideals. Consequently, harassment is considered by ACR to be a serious form of professional misconduct.

The following policy statement outlines expectations for all those who attend or participate in ACR conferences. These are existing norms and standards that reflect our shared goals of mutual respect in knowledge creation within a diverse community.

All participants at ACR conferences are expected to:

  • Follow the norms of professional respect that are necessary to promote the conditions for free academic interchange.
  • Be proactive to speak up to stop harassment of others, if witnessed.
  • Alert conference personnel if you see an occurrence of harassment, especially where asymmetries of power exist (e.g., where the harassed participant is not in an easy position to protect themselves).

Unacceptable Behavior:*

Behaviors considered unacceptable can include a single intense and severe act or multiple persistent or pervasive acts that are demeaning, abusive, offensive, or create a hostile professional or workplace environment. Harassment may include unwanted sexual solicitation, physical advance, or verbal or non-verbal conduct that is sexual in nature; it may also include threatening, intimidating, or hostile acts; circulation of written or graphic material that denigrates or shows hostility toward an individual or group; epithets, slurs, or negative stereotyping based on group identity.

A central email and phone number (+1 218-209-2313) has been set up with the Ombuds-team monitoring the email, phone calls, and texts during the conference.

To ensure a safe space at our conference, ACR does not accept registrations from individuals who have been found guilty of workplace harassment.

ACR may take any action to address those who violate our principles. Penalties may include verbal warning, ejection from the meeting without refund or other measures ACR deems appropriate. Retaliation for complaints of inappropriate conduct will not be tolerated. Notifying ACR does not constitute or replace a notification to local law enforcement and all violations of the law should be reported to local law enforcement.


ACR is tracking emerging news regarding COVID-19 and its variants. The ACR Board and the ACR 2022 planning team are continuing to monitor guidelines for health and safety provided by the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as COVID-19 information and recommendations from the city and county of Denver and the state of Colorado.

To reduce the risks of convening in person with the ACR community, we ask that all in-person attendees be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Masks will be provided and mask-wearing is strongly encouraged during the conference except when you are eating and drinking or actively presenting. Our event planning team will maximize social distancing at luncheons and social events. We ask that you allow for social distancing when possible and respect other attendees’ preferences for contact. The doctoral symposium will follow similar guidelines.


For those who are unable to attend ACR 2022 in person, we will be providing virtual access to synchronously view the plenary sessions, including the ACR Presidential Address and Perspectives & Prospects panels, one track of presentations throughout the conference, and other content such as films. Participants will pay a reduced registration fee for access to view this virtual content. Because of the interactive nature of the doctoral symposium, virtual participation won't be possible.


If you register for ACR 2022 and become unable to attend the conference (e.g., due to travel restrictions from your government or your university, or illness) please send a written notification of cancellation to Rajiv Vaidyanathan, Executive Director of ACR ( Your registration will be switched to the virtual track and the balance will be refunded to you.


Please notify ACR ( if you test positive for COVID-19 during the conference. The Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel has agreed to extend the conference group rate for anyone who must quarantine, if necessary, beyond the conference dates. ACR will inform attendees of any known potential exposure and share relevant CDC guidance.
