Overarching Schedule


We're excited to share with you the time slots for your presentations at AWP in March. 
Please cut and paste this link into your browser:

The full schedule, with wellness activities, meals, reception information, and other goodies will be available later on. We thank you in advance, both for submitting and sharing your work with us and for your understanding that we are unable to make changes to the schedule.


We look forward to seeing you in Austin!

Please review our overarching schedule of events so you can plan your travel and extra-conference activities around our events. The pre-conference workshop descriptions are on the registration website.

Note that poster sessions will take place concurrently with our Friday and Saturday evening receptions, with the hope of enlivening poster conversations over food and drink. We hope to be able to support 36 students with reduced registration through volunteering for the conference and to help those interested in matching with roommates to share the cost of a room. Check out the registration page for where to apply.

We also want to create a dinner plan and meet-ups for Friday and Saturday night before our evening entertainment which we are very excited about. Finally, the papers and symposia submitted have been amazing and you will find your time slot in the Google doc above.

Thanks to all of you who submitted your outstanding work for consideration. Feel free to email us with additional questions at awpaustin2020@yahoo.com
