Call For Papers

The CASA Symposium Committee is pleased to announce that this year’s ASA Multidisciplinary Research Symposium will be held on Saturday, November 4, 2017 at SIU’s Transportation Education Center [TEC]. The theme of the conference this year is New Horizons in the Applied Sciences and Arts: Rethinking and Remaking Our World for the 21st Century. We are seeking proposals for oral presentations, panel discussions, posters (students only) and workshops that will provide opportunities for students, researchers, and practitioners to discuss the influence and impact of the applied sciences and arts on the future of our planet and our civilization. The College of Applied Sciences and Arts [CASA] consists of a diverse range of programs that all center on the tangible application of knowledge and technology in the world. As such, 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

All initial proposals will be submitted as a 300-400 word abstract. Authors of accepted oral presentation 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, we are also hosting 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.

New to the symposium this year will be the opportunity to view and present remotely. More information will be posted on the website over the course of the spring as we establish the online infrastructure.

The symposium is open to faculty, professionals, and students from any discipline, university, or professional organization. The submission and registration forums will be up and running at the beginning of April. Abstract proposals for all submissions (except student poster proposals) are due no later than Friday, June 2, 2017. The early submission deadline for student poster proposals is Friday, May 12, 2017. There will be a second student submission deadline early in the Fall semester of 2017.

Please feel free to contact Symposium co-chairs Chad Schwartz ( or Karen Johnson ( if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
