2020 Juried Research Poster Session

Call for Proposals NOW OPEN — Proposals Due by October 15, 2019

ASTA is sponsoring a research poster session at the 2020 ASTA National Conference in Orlando, Florida, on Friday, March 6. We will consider research projects conducted by university faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, private lesson teachers, and teachers in public or private schools. The poster session is open to reports of research involving any aspect of string playing and teaching, including those that are philosophical, theoretical, or historical in nature, as well as reports that are qualitative or quantitative in design.


Submissions may take the form of a full paper or an abstract of 500 words that outlines the procedures and results of the research. Submissions should not have been published prior to the conference and must meet the Research Publication/Presentation Code of Ethics. Papers presented at other conferences will be considered for poster presentation if the audience was substantially different (e.g., a state meeting or a university symposium). A statement specifying particulars of any earlier presentation must be included with the submission. 

Research poster proposals must be submitted electronically and will be accepted until midnight October 15, 2019. No late submissions will be accepted.

Notifications will be send electronically in December 2019.

If accepted, the primary or a listed co-author must register for and attend the ASTA 2020 National Conference to present the poster. Presenters will be expected to bring 25 copies of their abstract to the session.
