From: Micah Altman
Now that APSA is over, we can start planning for the next round of conferences :-) I have been asked to head MPSA^Rs section on Information Technology & Politics, and I ask you to consider submitting a proposal ato this section.
The section welcomes any proposal that contributes to our understanding of the impact of technology on politics and policy (or vice-versa). We also welcome proposals that apply or evaluate technology in innovative ways as an instrument for teaching, data collection and dissemination, or statistical/information visualization and analysis We welcome all types of proposals, for papers, panels, roundtables, poster-sessions, chairs, and discussants. (Proposals by faculty to discuss or chair panels are always
*more* than welcome :-).
To submit a proposal to present, chair or discuss on a panel, use the online form by October 2nd:
(And please designate section 36 as your first section)
