A well-written proposal and abstract will enhance your application. Check for spelling errors before submitting!
It is critical that the title and abstract reflect the content of your proposed session. Attendees depend on the abstract printed in the conference program to determine which sessions to attend.
Poor evaluation scores often result when the printed abstract bears little relation to the actual presentation. This is the most often mentioned criticism on the individual evaluations.
Deadline to submit : January 13, 2017. Please do not wait until the last day when the server could be busy, making it difficult to submit your proposal. Late proposals will not be accepted.
