2018 Annual Conference Schedule

The General Conference will begin on Thursday, November 8 at 1 p.m. and end on Sunday, November 11 at 1:45 p.m.


2018 Scheduling Information

NWSA strives to minimize subject matter conflicts, but some overlap in subject matter is inevitable. There are over 500 sessions and only 15 available time slots over the entire general conference. For example, 106 sessions focus on Black Feminisms and therefore inevitably some will be scheduled simultaneously with others on the same topic. Additional scheduling considerations include ASA scheduling conflicts, AV allocations, presenters involved with more than one session, and accessibility accommodations among others.

If you have a scheduling request, please complete this form by June 30, 2018. We will contact you with the email address provided on the form. NOTE: Scheduling requests are not guaranteed. Our ability to accommodate scheduling changes is extremely limited.
