Accepting Papers? No

Call For Papers: The Genesis Program Unit accepted a large number of papers in 2020, most of which were deferred to the 2021 in-person Annual Meeting in San Antonio. Consequently, we are not accepting paper proposals this year. We regret any inconvenience this may cause. Additional announcement: The co-chairs and Steering Committee members of the Genesis Program Unit seek an individual who is interested in serving as co-chair, as we anticipate rotation in leadership in the coming year. Responsibilities will begin in November 2021. Please express interest to Naomi Steinberg at
