Report of the 2011 ACR Long-Term Planning Task Force

Recently an ACR Strategic Task force was created to address the growth, internationalization, and relevance of our field. The task force conducted a member survey and generated recommendations and issues to consider in the future. These outputs plus data on conference submissions will be discussed. We seek input on several recommendations for ACR initiatives to scale up and enhance the field as it rapidly expands, including recommendations for new and existing publication outlets and conference structures.
