This year will be ICMA's eighth Academic Symposium. 

ICMA members and nonmembers can submit presentations for the academic conference panels. Sessions should be no longer than 20 minutes in length with up to 10 minutes for questions. The faster pace and executive summary format is appreciated by the practitioners in the audience and allows us to fit more sessions into the time slots during the in-person event.

While your school can submit more than one session idea, one of our goals is to have a broad representation of schools. As the audience is a mix of practitioners and academics, include a portion of your presentation to address how your research or writing addresses the practice of management, for managers.

Sessions will be selected by a subcommittee ICMA's Graduate Education Committee.

Priority deadline is May 10, 2024.

Enter copy as you would like it to appear in the program, including title, organization, and presenter name(s). Presentations can be submitted here

Email Erika Cooper at with questions.
