The NCA/AFA Summer Conference on Argumentation is held biennially in the mountains above Salt Lake City. Co-sponsored by the National Communication Association, the American Forensic Association, and the University of Utah, the Conference brings together a group of international scholars interested in all aspects of argument.
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.
