SAH 2016 Annual International Conference

Request for Meeting Rooms

SAH 2016 Annual International Conference, April 6-10
Pasadena/Los Angeles, California
Conference Chair: Ken Tadashi Oshima, University of Washington

SAH is accepting formal proposals for additional programming for the SAH 2016 Annual International Conference to be held in Pasadena/Los Angeles, April 6–10. This is a new process designed to ensure that proposals are received in a timely manner and selected programs are incorporated into the conference schedule before it is announced.
SAH is accepting proposals for:

  • Roundtable discussions
  • Meetings (chapter meetings, partner organization meetings, SAH committee meetings, etc.)
  • Informational presentations (grant offerings, resources, how-to, workshops)
These programs will be offered:
Thursday or Friday during the mid-day break from 1:30–2:30 p.m. OR Thursday or Friday between 9 a.m.–1 p.m. or 3–5 p.m. in 60- or 90-minute increments
Submit your proposal via this link for review between now and August 14, 2015. It is recommended that you not wait until the last day; you will have a better chance if the committee is able to review your request in a timely manner.
SAH continues to expand the discussions and conversations taking place at the SAH conference. We look forward to reviewing your proposal and determining if it will be a good fit. This process will allow selected proposals to be incorporated into the conference schedule in a timely manner and promoted properly. All will need to apply to be considered; this includes the meetings, roundtable discussions, and informational programs traditionally held at the conference.
Please do not submit paper proposals as these will not be accepted.
If you have any questions, please contact Kathy Sturm at
