There is a place on the submission form to indicate special A/V or media requirements which could result in extra fees.
- When developing your Title choose key words that describe the presentation content. (The system will limit you to 120 characters.)
- The Presentation teaser/ abstract should contain a maximum of 10-25 words. This short abstract should be in sentence format. This abstract is published in the schedule at a glance. When developing your Presentation description and goals (up to 1,000 words), please make sure you identify how you plan to engage the audience. This can be accomplished through a number of techniques including small group moments, interactive question and answers, audience contribution, interactive handouts, games, partner exercises etc.
When developing your presentation abstract and presentation description and goals, keep in mind they should:
- be concisely written, accurate, self-contained, and coherent
- use a clear and direct writing style with active voice rather than passive
- describe who would benefit from attending this session
- give a clear statement of what participants will learn from this presentation
- list what materials—slides, handouts, web links—will be provided during the presentation, posted on the conference web site, or submitted to the conference proceedings
- give participants a good idea of the content and format of your presentation
- persuade the proposal reviewers and conference attendees that you are going to present something unique, valuable and engaging
Please make sure you check your work for grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Keep the abstract short and to the point. Since a broad audience will view your abstract you should spell out all acronyms. Also keep in mind that all information submitted through the online system will be used verbatim to generate the web agenda and any conference publications. Please make sure that your information is accurate and carefully edited. This includes information about you and your co-presenters.
