2019 Annual Conference


November 7-9, 2019

Pittsburgh Marriott City Center

112 Washington Place

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15219

MAPACA returns this year to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in a new location: The Pittsburgh Marriott City Center. Sitting at the junction of three of the northeast’s major rivers—The Ohio, Allegheny, and Monongahela—the “City of Bridges” is the vibrant, thriving center of a metropolitan region that ranks among the largest in the United States.

Once an industrial powerhouse known for steel and manufacturing, Pittsburgh has in recent decades emerged as a national leader in technology and finance. The region is also an educational powerhouse, home to renowned research and teaching institutions such as Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Pittsburgh, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and Duquesne University.

Pittsburgh is also known for its dynamic cultural scene: organizations such as the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera, the Pittsburgh Opera, and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra host hundreds of performances in the city each year. The city is also home to numerous amazing restaurants, museums, art galleries and exhibition spaces, and the August Wilson Center for African-American Culture.

We look forward to you joining us in the Steel City for our 2019 Annual Conference. Abstracts will be accepted through starting in early March 2019, and accepted through June 30, 2019 for inclusion in the conference.
