We look forward to another set of interesting presentations at the Annual Meetings
of the American Political Science Association in San Francisco, August 31–
September 3, 2017. Our Division Chairs for ‘‘Elections and Voting Behavior’’ and
‘‘Public Opinion’’ (John Barry Ryan and Tiffany Barnes) would like to remind
scholars in the ﬁeld that there are both traditional and new formats for presentations.
Most importantly, normal panels will only consist of four papers. This includes
full panel submissions, as well as panels constructed by the Division Chairs from
individual paper proposals. The four paper limit will help to avoid rushed
presentations and discussions on 90 min panels.
Alternative formats include:
ePoster Individual paper submission by an author(s) that will be incorporated into
the electronic, online poster hall. Posters will be available at iPoster kiosks onsite at
the Meeting, as well as prior to the convention, and after the convention.
Roundtable (90 min) A roundtable proposal is for a discussion format session on a
speciﬁc topic to discuss and debate.
30-minute Paper Presentations (3 papers at 30 min each; 90 min) This format
allows a scholar to present his or her work for a longer period of time and to have a
Teaching Cafe´ (90 min) This format provides opportunities to discuss the
scholarship of teaching and learning, pedagogical techniques, and trends in political
