Panel proposals

Panel sessions provide an opportunity to explore an issue beyond paper presentations. A panel proposal should be closely aligned with the conference theme and should include: 1) a moderator (who may also be the session organizer), 2) an outlined plan for the session that includes audience participation, and 3) proposed panelists. We encourage panels that actively engage the audience and seek to include multiple perspectives including researchers and practitioners. Panel proposals on the conference themes must include a 400-word rationale explaining how the panel fits the conference theme plus a separate 150-word summary of the rationale to appear in the conference program.
