Submission of Late Workshop Proposals

You are welcome to submit a workshop proposal between October 1 and 16, but we do not guarantee that it will be read. The workshop proposal submission deadline ass September 30, 2015. The workshops committee will give first priority to proposals submitted on time.  However, the committee will consider a late proposal if it might provide valuable balance to the workshops offered in 2016. We are still looking for proposals in some areas.

Please email the workshop committee at about your intention to submit a late proposal, including a title and a sentence or two about the workshop. 

Late proposals should be submitted no later than October 16.  Use the same submission processes as for on-time proposals (see above).

If you experience technical problems in submitting your proposal, please contact Susan Lee Barton, Conference Associate, at
