Conference Overview

For more than 30 years, APPE members and non-members have gathered annually to present, network, and discuss today's most relevant topics.

This year's conference will be held in Norfolk, Virginia from Feb. 20-23, 2025.

The conference includes an Opening Panel, Keynote address, concurrent sessions, an opening reception, and various pre-conference opportunities.

We are now accepting proposals for submissions (Deadline: Oct. 7) and notifications to presenters will be provided by December 20, 2024. Registration will open in mid-September.

One of the most popular features of the conference is the "Book Room" which includes exhibitor and publisher tables and provides attendees and publishers a chance to network.

The APPE Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl® is also held in conjunction with the annual APPE conference and many attendees serve as judges and moderators for the competition.

There is a one-day virtual component, to be held March 28, 2025, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET.

In response to feedback from 2024 conference attendees, the 2025 conference will focus on What Makes Us Human. As emerging technologies have secured growing and influential roles in our lives, the core attributes that define humanity have become less clear to many. Academicians and professionals will examine this changing landscape by exploring how our understanding of human values, ethics, and behavior might challenge our conceptions of autonomy, privacy, and trust in our digital future. Through these conversations, we seek to bridge the gap between rapidly-evolving technology and enduring human principles thereby ensuring that our future is both innovative and ethically grounded.
