MPSA Annual Conference

In the spring of each year, the MPSA holds one of the largest political science conferences in the discipline. In 2013, more than 5,700 presenters from the United States and 55 countries throughout the world presented more than 4,700 papers. Conference presentations are organized by topic in more than 70 sections based on different subfields or areas of study. Many of these are interdisciplinary and draw scholars from different fields, providing a variety of perspectives.  As our attendee survey and comments from past attendees attest, this is a popular conference.

The 2014 conference will have several new elements, including the Empire Lecture Series, an Open Discussion session where people can meet and discuss a topic of common interest with no pre-planned presentations, and a section with Professional and Career Development. In addition, there will be new section that will include review articles and articles on the state of a subfield called "Politics in Review."

As usual, the conference kicks off with the Welcome Reception on Wednesday evening. Other highlights are the Exhibitors' Reception on Thursday night and the President’s Reception on Saturday evening. As always, the hub of activity at the conference is the Exhibit Hall, open Thursday through Saturday.


Exhibit and advertise at the 72nd MPSA Annual Conference, April 3-6, 2014, traditionally held at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago. This spring conference is the perfect opportunity to meet potential authors and introduce new textbooks, computer software, journals, survey databases, and other products and services to a diverse group of political scientists to a diverse group of political scientists who are planning their fall courses.

The MPSA Conference is one of the biggest in the discipline. Average daily foot traffic in the exhibit hall was 2,985 in 2012. Email kiosks, free coffee, and poster presentations make the exhibit hall the center of activity.

The exhibit hall - nearly 14, 000 square feet - is on the 4th floor, three escalator rides up from the hotel lobby.  The Exhibitors' Reception is held in the exhibit hall on Thursday evening.
