Call for Papers

Throughout the multiple meetings hosted each year, API is dedicated to providing our meeting attendees with the most relevant topics for their areas of interest. API is continually looking for industry experts to present their findings, new technology, or areas of expertise during these events.

The sessions presented at API conferences are selected by the Program Committees based on need, relevance of topic, and written abstracts of the proposed presentation.  All session abstracts are reviewed by the program committee.

API hosts meetings and conferences in all segments of the industry.  For the requirements of a specific meeting, please visit our Calendar of Events and select the program of interest.
