Key Points for Proposal Preparation

  1. Submit your proposal early! The proposal deadline is Friday, December 8. You will have until April to pull it all together for your presentation, and we expect to send out acceptances in late January.
  2. Consider the best format for your work: Individual, Skill Building, Ignite or Panel.
  3. Be selective. To increase program participation, we typically include the best presentation submitted by an author.
  4. Know your co-authors. Have information about your co-authors on hand when submitting your proposal. (You’ll need their city, state and email address.)
