Call For Papers

2016 ASA Multidisciplinary Research Symposium
Southern Illinois University | Carbondale, Illinois

CASA consists of a diverse range of programs – transportation, architecture and design, allied health, and information systems and applied technologies – which all center on the tangible application of knowledge and technology in the world. As such, this year the Symposium theme is EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES: INNOVATION IN THE APPLIED SCIENCES AND ARTS, highlighting the emerging technologies that will (or have) served as a catalyst for progress, change, and evolution in our disciplines. Faculty and students in these areas are actively engaged in research motivated by a wide array of practical needs. In 2016, the Symposium seeks to reveal the role technology is playing in this research and in the development of our environment. We will also have opportunities for the presentation of exceptional work that falls outside the scope of the Symposium theme, especially with regards to projects that are led by or that engage students.

The Symposium is open to faculty, professionals, and students from any discipline, university, or professional organization. This year we are accepting proposals for oral presentations, panel discussions, and workshops that will provide opportunities for students, researchers, and practitioners to discuss current and emerging initiatives in the applied sciences and arts. This year, we are modifying the submission process. All initial proposals will be submitted as a 300-400 word abstract. Authors of accepted abstracts will then have the option of submitting a full paper for an additional double-blind peer review. Top papers will be published in The Journal of Applied Sciences and Arts while the rest of the accepted papers will be published online in the Symposium Proceedings. As we have in the past, the Symposium will include a student poster competition to provide a forum for students actively engaged in research or significant course projects to present their work to a jury of esteemed educators and professionals. Top posters will be awarded monetary prizes.

We are open to any thoughtful interpretations or reinterpretations of the conference theme as it applies to these fields:

Allied Health | Dental Hygiene, Health Care Management and Administration, Mortuary Science and Funeral Service, Radiologic Sciences, Physical Therapy, and Health Informatics

Architecture, Design, and the Built Environment | Architecture, Interior Design, Fashion Design and Merchandising, Construction Management, and Public Safety Management

Transportation | Automotive Technology, Aviation Management and Flight, and Aviation Technologies

Information Systems and Applied Technologies | Electronic Systems Technologies, Information Systems Technologies, and Technical Resource Management

More information on the Symposium can be found on our recently updated website:

The submission and registration forums will be up and running at the beginning of April and the abstract proposals for all submissions (except student poster proposals) are due no later than Friday, May 27th, 2016. Student poster proposals are due no later than Friday, July 29th, 2016

The ASA Research Symposium has doubled in size each of the past two years and we are hoping for more growth and a broader reach and impact in 2016. We hope to have you join us in October.
