The New York State Political Science Association (NYSPSA) is dedicated to advancing the study of public institutions, political behavior and public policy. Our goal is to improve the quality of public deliberation and decision-making by fostering collaboration between scholars and practitioners. To that end, we hold an annual conference that along with our website, provides a venue to inform scholars and practitioners, while also promoting new research and recognizing excellence in the field.
The principal activity of the New York State Political Science Association is its annual two-day scholarly conference during the spring months. Membership in the association is open to political science students and professionals inside and outside New York State, and a year's membership is automatic with registration for the conference. Calls for papers for the conference are available in September. The event usually draws 200 to 250 panelists and round table participants, and features a book display and an academic job placement service. The site of the conference rotates each year between upstate and downstate university host campuses.
