Symposium Session Proposal Submission Form

Symposium Session Submission Guidelines

Deadline March 9, 2017

Thank you for your interest in submitting a Session Proposal. The Program Committee will only consider complete proposals, so please be prepared to submit complete paper/topic and contact information for all session participants and co-authors (if any). We encourage you to collect this information in a Word (or other) document, and copy it into this submission form.

1. Session proposals have seven (7) participants: Either 1 chair, 4 presenters, and 2 discussants or 1 chair, 3 presenters and 3 discussants.

2. Please list complete participant information (affiliations, mailing addresses, email addresses), and include paper or speaker topic titles and abstracts (up to 250 words) for each.

3. Please list paper co-authors (if more than one) in the appropriate 'author order', so that we may list them correctly in the printed program.

4. If you have other information to submit about this session that will not 'fit' neatly into the e-form, please include it at the very end of the e-form in 'other comments and notes'.

5. A copy of your proposal will be emailed to you after you submit this form. You may wish to print or electronically keep this email as your record of submission.

STOP! Do you have complete information (paper/topic titles, abstracts, contact information for all participants and co-authors, etc.) before you begin? You will not be able to save this form and come back to it.
