I am posting this on behalf of Mike Janas:

The American Forensic Association (AFA) is an association of educators committed to supporting forensic pedagogy. The AFA is interested in promoting and supporting research that enhances the theory and practice of argumentation, advocacy, and competitive debate and public speaking competition. AFA is looking for submissions that reinforce the convention theme "The Presence of our Past(s): NCA at 100." We also encourage submissions that cut across disciplines. The AFA will accept the following submission types: individual papers, panel discussions, and paper sessions. All submissions must be made via NCA Submission Central. For a definition of submission types, please refer to the step-by-step "How to Submit" instructions provided in the Convention Resource Library (www.natcom.org/conventionresources) on the NCA Convention website. Papers, paper sessions, and panel discussions submitted to the division may be theoretical, empirical and/or critical in nature. The AFA encourages a diversity of methodological approaches.
 
Individual Papers: Individual papers should be less than 6,000 words and written to conceal authorship and institutional affiliation. Instructions on how to prepare a blind copy can be found in the Convention Resource Library. Papers should be accompanied by a description of no more than 150 words.
 
We encourage panel discussion proposals that include authors with diverse institutional affiliations, and to include the name of a Chair and a Respondent who are not one of the presenters.
 
Panel Discussions: Panel discussion proposals must include a panel title, a 150-word rationale of the content and format of the panel,a brief description of the panel discussion, and panelist contact information. A Chair is required for a panel discussion.
 
Paper sessions: Paper sessions should include a session title, a rationale for the session, an overall description of the session, titles and abstracts of papers to be featured, and participant contact information. A Chair is required for a panel discussion.
 
Sessions should include participants with different institutional affiliations. All submitters are encouraged to review the Professional Standards for Convention Participants prior to submission, located in the convention resource library. Helpful resources, including step-by-step instructions on how to submit are also included in the Convention Resource Library. The AFA point of Contact is Mike Janas, Samford University, mjjanas@samford.edu.
 
The deadline to submit is Wednesday, March 26 at 11:59pm Pacific Time
