The Costs, Hotels and Call for Papers

The first Historical Analysis Annual Conference (HAAC) is scheduled for 27-29 September, 2022 in Tysons Corner, VA, USA. It is being hosted by The Dupuy Institute but is an open conference and we are looking for interested presenters and attendees from all corners of the historical analysis, operations research, and historical research communities.

This is first time we have tried such an effort, and hopefully it will be well enough received that it will become an annual (or even semi-annual) event. I was impressed with the level of support I received last fall when I first emailed people about this. I am very thankful for all the people who have volunteered to do presentations. We do have 25 presentations already lined up.

The cost of the conference is discussed in the link below. It is $150 for the whole three days, $60 for a day, $20 for “real” students. Presenters get a $60 discount. You have to cover your travel, hotel, meals and bar bill. Sorry.

Area hotels are listed in the link below. A couple are within walking distance. I have not put together a block of rooms at any hotel but can do so if people are interested. I suspect a lot of people attending the conference do live in the DC area.

If you are interested in presenting, just email me at We have reserved two conference rooms and currently have 25 presentations scheduled by 16 presenters. We have slots for at least 9 more. If we get a lot more quality presentations, then I will expand our conference area, instead of turning people way. I will post a revised schedule on this blog tomorrow.
