May 2023 Update: 
The response to this year's CFP has been truly amazing and the Program Committee has been working diligently to review all proposals. Acceptance notifications are currently being shared on a rolling basis and we hope to let everyone know the status of their proposal within the next two weeks. We recognize that members are eager to finalize their summer travel plans and we will be contacting members very soon. Thanks so much for your continued patience and for supporting ASWAD.
