In the spring of each year, the MPSA holds one of the largest political science conferences in the discipline. In 2012, more than 5,200 presenters from the United States and 55 countries throughout the world presented more than 4,200 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.
