Call for Proposals  Submit Your Proposal

Are you considering a presentation? Here are the key steps and information to help you.

  • View the Call for Proposals for instructions, guidelines, and the review rubric.
    • Preview of the Proposal Submission form
  • Submit your presentation proposal and abstract by the early or regular deadline. Two rounds of submissions are provided to provide you with flexibility.
    • If you prefer and can submit earlier, then you will receive notification before winter break (early submission).
    • If you need more time to submit, then you will get your notification by mid-January (regular submission).
    • Pick the option that works best for you! Proposals are reviewed the same way, using the same rubric, for both submission periods.
