Abstracts submission deadline for ASAA2022 extended to 31 Jan 2022

The deadline for submission of abstracts for the ASAA2022 conference has been extended to 31 January 2022, 23:59 PST (UTC−06:59 on Feb 1).

The Conference Committee is responding to numerous requests from, particularly younger scholars to extend the deadline. We hope that this extension allows sufficient time for accepted panellists to submit their abstracts as well as for scholars and other people affected by COVID-19 to submit their abstracts.

The call for abstracts is available in English, French, Arabic, Portuguese and Swahili. And we look forward to engaging with the authors on the next steps.

Kindly also note that as a consequence, the date of the abstracts acceptance notification automatically moves to 7 February 2022.
