Proposal Process
The Program Committee will accept proposals for the following six formats:

  • Fully-formed panel
  • Roundtable
  • Forum
  • Poster presentation

Each proposal will be reviewed by the Program Committee. Proposals for all formats should not exceed 300 words, but a successful, effective proposal for any format can certainly be shorter. The first deadline allows for revision and re-submission of proposals, should reviewers deem that necessary. The second deadline does not allow for re-submission. Detailed guidelines for proposals and published program abstracts from past years are available on the AATSEEL website.
