Nearly 150 scholars and students gathered at the Snowbird Ski Resort near Alta, Utah, for the 2019 NCA/AFA Summer Conference on Argumentation. Co-sponsored by the National Communication Association, the American Forensic Association, and the University of Utah, the conference brought together scholars interested in all aspects of argument. Those scholars, from across the nation and around the world, engaged in three days of programs and exchanges to further research in argumentation. Often called "the Alta Conference," the event is the oldest continuous academic conference in argumentation study and was first held in 1979.
The conference provides three days of programs and exchanges to further research in argumentation. The Director and associates select and edit the most significant research presented for a volume published by Taylor & Francis.
Under the supervision of the Alta Conference Steering Committee, the registration and accounting processes for the conference are now operated through NCA.
