Philadelphia, PA
November 3-6, 2011

The following are being accepted for the International Textile and Apparel Association Annual Meeting:

Research Presentations: Scholars are invited to submit proposals to present original research papers at the ITAA annual meeting.  Appropriate submissions include research studies and scholarship from diverse theoretical positions.  Research must be completed at time of submission and may not have been published or reported at a national or regional conference prior to the ITAA Annual Meeting.  Each paper must be presented by one of the authors in oral or poster format. 

Technical Design / Fashion Illustration / Textile Design: Of special interest for undergraduate students.  Scholars are invited to submit proposals to present original research posters at the ITAA annual meeting on Technical Design / Fashion Illustration / Textile Design.  Appropriate submissions include design research from diverse positions, recognizing that design includes apparel, costume, textiles, accessories, functional and technical design, apparel product development, and fashion illustration.  This call is for research only, and does not include the teaching of technical design or fashion illustration.  Although the final poster can have a strong visual focus, the proposal should include a strong research focus.  Research must be completed at time of submission and may not have been published or reported at a national or regional conference prior to the ITAA Annual Meeting.  Each paper must be presented by one of the authors in oral or poster format.

Teaching Presentations: Scholars are invited to submit proposals to present papers on the creative teaching, curriculum strategies and best practices at the ITAA annual meeting.  Papers should be reported in narrative form and may not have been published or reported at a national or regional conference prior to the ITAA Annual Meeting.  Each paper must be presented by one of the authors in oral or poster format.

Deadline for submissions is April 1, 2011; author notification by June 30, 2011.

The author(s) of the papers with top scores in each track will be invited to expand their paper into a full article that will be resubmitted for “Paper of Distinction” (previously Track Best Paper).  The expanded paper will undergo a second double-blind review, and papers that are considered worthy of the title of “Paper of Distinction” will be recognized during the annual conference.
