Introduction & Proposal Procedures/Instructions


We recognize that the following procedures are lengthy; however, we want you to have as much information as possible prior to completing the online submission form.

You must complete the form all at once. Be sure to allow sufficient time to complete your submission. Once you submit your proposal, you will be able to edit your content until the submission deadline of Monday, September 25, 2023 (until 11:59pm PST).

Procedures for Submitting a Workshop Proposal

  • Workshop proposals accepted online only.

  • Each workshop proposal may have up to two co-presenters. Important: The system only allows up to two co-presenters. The system will not be adjusted to allow for more than two co-presenters.
