The APPAM Fall Research Conference is a multi-disciplinary annual research conference that attracts the highest quality research on a wide variety of important current and emerging policy and management issues. The conference is comprised of panels, roundtables, workshops, symposia and poster presentations and is designed to encourage substantive interaction among participants.
APPAM has always included practitioners within the conference, and many non-academic researchers in public policy and management consider APPAM to be their primary professional meeting. APPAM is always seeking increased conference participation from policy makers at all levels of government and other practitioners who are directly involved in the areas of emphasis within the annual research conference.
The Fall Research Conference also developed many special events and features, including receptions, a job interview service, symposia, book exhibits, poster sessions, the Annual Membership Meeting, and affiliate receptions. An APPAM conference is an intense experience, with many opportunities for professional networking and exposure to the latest research in the field.
