2018 AIC Annual Meeting

Thank you to all of our members who responded to the Annual Meeting Call for Papers. The abstract review committee, led by Program Chair Deb Cuoco and Assistant Program Chair Jen Hunt Johnson, has been busily reading submissions and is crafting an excellent program for our 2018 Houston meeting. Calls for submissions for the tips sessions and the Archives and Library Discussion Groups (ACDG and LCCDG) are coming soon, or have been previously announced. We would like to remind our members that we have three discussion groups and two slots per meeting, so the Art on Paper Discussion Group (APDG) is on hiatus during this meeting.

If you reserve a room at the conference hotel, Marriott Marquis, and end up not needing the room, please cancel as early as possible. Early cancellation (before May 1) is not only considerate, but has a positive financial impact: it allows your colleagues who are on the waiting list to secure a room, and also ensures AIC’s good standing and beneficial costs arrangement with future conference hotels - which use data such as last-minute cancellations to set prices.
