Call for Proposals 2021 APPAM Fall Research Conference The Power of Inclusion: Incorporating Diverse Voices in Public Policy Analysis and Management November 11 - 13, 2021 Austin, Texas APPAM’s 43rd Annual Fall Research Conference will take place Thursday, November 11 through Saturday, November 13 at the JW Marriott Austin in Austin, Texas. This year's conference theme will be The Power of Inclusion: Incorporating Diverse Voices in Public Policy Analysis and Management. Traditionally, public policy analysis and management research was primarily led by trained and credentialed experts with participants and key stakeholders primarily serving as research subjects or informants. Moreover, the backgrounds and experiences of the researchers themselves did not often reflect those impacted by the research. As the field evolves, more inclusive practices have emerged and many organizations, including APPAM, now recognize the value of increasing the number of professionals from underrepresented groups contributing to the field. We encourage submissions that demonstrate how the inclusion of diverse voices and perspectives in all phases of policy analysis and management will strengthen the field while making our work product better and more relevant. The following submission types will be solicited in the conference’s 15 policy areas: Panel - Panels include 3-4 papers. A chair and at least one, and a maximum of two, discussants are required. Panels with four papers are encouraged to have two discussants. Presenting authors may not serve as the chair or discussant on the same panel. Individuals may only present on up to two panels throughout the conference, though they may serve as a chair or discussant unlimited times. Poster - Poster submissions are single paper proposals that are presented in a poster format. Presenters will be asked to discuss their work and answer questions during each poster session. A first, second, and third place winner will be selected from the presenations each day. Roundtable - Roundtables do not include papers, but rather feature speakers who will discuss a topic from varying perspectives and draw the audience into a discussion on the topic. Roundtable proposals should includeup to 4 speakers plus a moderator. Single Papers - Single papers are proposals that will later be combined with other single papers to be presented as cohesive panel sessions around a single topic. Super Sessions - Super Sessions are broadly-appealing sessions that will interest a large number of attendees, and cover an important and topical issue in public policy. This submission type should be interdisciplinary and be of interest to attendees across multiple policy areas. Super Session proposals should include up to 4 speakers plus a moderator. Abstracts for individual papers and posters should be between 100 and 500 words. If a panel of papers is proposed there should be a summary of each paper plus an overarching description of the panel and its importance. Descriptions for roundtables should be between 100 and 500 words, plus a listing of participants and a summary of their contributions. All submissions must be completed no later than Friday, April 9, 2021 by 11:59 PM PT. NEW in 2021 – The submitter will enter session and participant details, but each individual participant will be emailed and asked to update their demographics as well. This does not have any impact on the submission or its review. This information will be used internally to accurately measure APPAM’s equity and inclusion efforts in regards to conference speakers and presenters. Notifications will be sent by late-July 2021. If you have questions, please email Samantha Oliver Thomason at soliver@appam.org.

What are the current and emerging initiatives to ensure better access, accountability, and relevance of climate finance within the access of national and local stakeholders? What are the spaces or opportunities in climate finance that can support the implementation and enhancement of local adaptation initiatives including climate risk management and mainstreaming of climate action/agenda in long-term development plans/agenda? How can broader and multi-stakeholder cooperation play a key role in addressing the current gaps and challenges in climate finance?
