The 2011 Asia-Pacific Conference of the Association for Consumer Research will be held at Renmin University of China, Beijing, China from Thursday June 16 through Saturday, June 18, 2011. Conference registration and the opening reception will occur on the evening of June 16, with presentations from Friday June 17 through Saturday, June 18.

As in past years, the conference will provide a multi-topical forum for scholarly presentations, discussions, and collaborations on consumer behavior. The theme of this conference is: Link cultures, concepts and continents. We encourage researchers from different countries and disciplines to submit papers and proposals about their cross-cultural, cross-country, and interdisciplinary research. Submissions not related to the theme are welcome too. Additional specific information on submissions of special sessions, competitive papers, posters, roundtables, and films is provided from the conference website.

Program Structure

There will be five main forums for presenting and discussing research and scholarly thoughts:

  • Special Topic Sessions provide opportunities for focused attention on cutting-edge and important topics. Successful sessions offer a coherent perspective on emerging substantive, theoretical, or methodological issues.
  • Competitive Paper Sessions include papers that represent the completed work of their authors. The conference co-chairs will assign accepted papers to sessions that reflect similar scholarly interests.
  • Film Festival enable scholars to present their videographies on consumption-related topics at the conference.
  • Posters are for participants to typically present preliminary findings from early stages of aresearch program. Authors distribute their papers and display their findings poster-style in a plenary session.
  • Roundtables encourage intensive participant discussion of consumer research topics and issues.

All submissions must be received no later than Monday December 20, 2010. The submissions will be accepted on the conference website from November, 15, 2010 to December, 20, 2010. Special instructions for film submissions can be found from the conference website.
