Call for Papers
IAS-Sponsored Sessions at the 112th College Art Association Annual Conference
Chicago, IL, 14-17 February 2024
Deadline: 20 April 2023

The Italian Art Society (IAS) invites proposals for one sponsored conference session (90 minutes) at the 2024 CAA Conference, to be held at the Chicago Hilton Hotel in Chicago, February 14–17. IAS members interested in organizing a panel on any topic of Italian art and architecture and their study should send a brief abstract (250 words max.), session title, a short list of potential or desired speakers (they need not be confirmed), the name of the chair(s) with email addresses and affiliation, and one-page CV(s).

The IAS will consider both completed panels and those soliciting contributors, which will be completed during CAA’s annual “Call for Participation” in the summer. Please specify either: Complete Session or Session Seeking Contributions; In Person or Virtual.

In preparing your application, please consult both the IAS Submission Guidelines and CAA’s 2024 Submission Portal,, to ensure you have gathered the correct materials for the format of the panel that you are submitting for consideration by IAS at this time.


  • Applicants must be current members of IAS at the time of application and conference if selected. Participants must also be members of the IAS. Those with financial need may be eligible for Sospeso Memberships. To join or renew, visit the IAS website:
  • If an individual’s proposal is accepted and they are not currently a member of CAA, they must join CAA within 90 days of acceptance. All session participants (chair, presenters, discussant) must be current Individual CAA members, and must register for the conference. This is a CAA rule.
  •  Your session, presentation, or paper content may not have been published previously or presented at another scholarly conference.
  • Select the five CAA Fields of Study that best represent your proposal. The first five selected will be used to filter submissions during the review process, and are later searchable in the conference schedule. See CAA’s submission page.

Deadline: Please submit all materials via the IAS online submission form by 20 April 2023.

To ensure the Program Committee receives and considers your proposal, please also send us an email to alert us to your submission. Please contact Janis Elliott, the IAS Program Committee Chair ( with any questions.
