Dear All:

We would like to invite you to submit your research to the 2009 North American Conference of the Association for Consumer Research that will be held at the Westin Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA from Thursday, October 22 through Sunday, October 25, 2009.

The theme of ACR 2009 is “A World of Knowledge At the Point of Confluence.” Consumer researchers from around the world will meet in the City at the Point, where the Allegheny and the Monongahela flow together to form the Ohio. International consumer researchers will gather in Pittsburgh to share the ideas and data that converge to create knowledge.

The conference format will follow that of past years. A pre-conference Doctoral Symposium will be held Thursday. Thursday evening will feature an opening reception for ACR 2009. The conference program on Friday and Saturday will include Competitive Paper sessions, Special sessions, Roundtable discussions, Working Paper sessions, and the Film Festival. A gala reception will be held Saturday evening at the Heinz History Center, two blocks from the Westin.

Please find the Conference Announcement and Call for Submissions at the Conference website:

Submission deadline is March 23, 2009.

We hope to see you in Pittsburgh!
