Call for Submissions
Deadline for Submission: Proposals must be postmarked or e-mailed by
February 25, 2005.
Proposal Review and Selection: All submissions will be reviewed and
evaluated by members of the Program Committee. With all proposal
formats, the Program Committee retains the right to request additional
information, ask that changes be made to improve a presentation, or
decline to schedule a presentation the Committee does not find relevant
to the meeting. No changes can be made after proposals have been
submitted unless the Committee has specifically requested that change.
All submitters will receive e-mail notification of the acceptance or
rejection of the submission by mid-March 2005.
Submitter Responsibilities: The commitment of all participants must be
secured in advance of proposal submission. Only the submitter will
receive notification of the proposal's acceptance, detailed information
on scheduling and logistics, etc. Therefore, if there are multiple
participants, it is the submitter’s responsibility to keep them informed
of their proposal status and other relevant information.
Presentation Format Descriptions:
Symposium: A focused session in which participants present their views
on a common issue. A symposium should include a chair, up to four
presenters, and an optional discussant. The total session time is 90
minutes and should allow for discussion among presenters and the
audience. Symposia should have the dual goals of providing diversity of
perspective and integrating those perspectives into a meaningful whole.
Individual Presentation: Individual speakers make a 15-minute oral
presentation on their current research or any exciting conference topic.
The presentation is followed by a 5-minute questions and comments period
with the audience. Individual presentations will be combined with others
to complete the 90-minute session format.
Proposal Preparation Instructions: Submitters must complete an abstract
(50 words or less) to be used in the program description. Also submit a
more detailed summary, not more than 500 words describing the individual
presentation or entire symposium. Also, submit presenter’s name(s),
affiliation(s), and e-mail address(es).
Program Participant Registration Policy
All program participants must register and pay the appropriate
conference registration fee (scholarships are available).
