Revisit: ACR Asia-Pacific Conference 2012


Asia-Pacific conference of the Association for Consumer Research 2012, Queenstown, New Zealand, 6-8 Jul 2012, Chairs Ekant Veer, Paul Ballantine, Lucie Ozanne; Deadline 12 Dec

 ARC: Connections: ELMAR: Posting

Dear All, this is just a reminder that the deadline for submissions to the Asia Pacific ACR Conference in Queenstown, New Zealand is fast approaching. All submissions need to be made online at by December 12th 2011.

In a new development for ACR conferences, and in line with conversations during the main conference in St Louis, the Queenstown Chairs have decided to allow 1500 word extended abstracts for competitive paper authors that only wish to have the extended abstract available in the final proceedings. Authors wishing to have a full paper available in the final proceedings still need to submit a full, 20 page submission; however, those who are only wishing to have the extended abstract available no longer need to submit a 20 page paper for review. We will be updating the website and CFPs accordingly.

This decision mean authors will need to communicate their contribution far more efficiently and we welcome discussion on how to write an effective extended abstract via the ACR Facebook group (!/groups/222808171070055/) or directly to the ACR Chairs (

In general, we hope you feel this move eliminates some unnecessary writing on the part of authors who only wish to present an extended abstract.

Best regards

Ekant, Paul & Lucie
