Annual Meeting Policies

Those interested in submitting proposals to the BHC Annual Meeting should also read our "Submitting a Proposal" Guidelines.


  • Individuals may submit no more than two paper proposals (and/or research panels and roundtables) for consideration of the Program Committee per year.
  • Authors may give only one paper per year.
  • The Program Committee will in general select discussants and chairs that do not appear elsewhere on the program. Exceptions will be at the discretion of the program committee.
  • The dissertation session is a plenary and no other sessions are held at that time. Dissertation session presenters may appear elsewhere on the annual meeting program as a presenter, chair, or discussant.
  • The membership meeting will be held on Saturday, for at least one-half hour, at a time when no other activities are scheduled.
  • Workshops, tours, etc. will be held on Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday, not Friday or Saturday, so as not to conflict with the research presentations.
