What are the criteria for rating proposals?

The Program Committee will be looking at the following:

I submitted my proposal...Now what?

Your proposal will go to the conference program committee for consideration. Composed of University faculty, the committee will review all proposals, determining which to include in the program. The Office of High-Impact Practices will then notify you by e-mail of the decision regarding your proposal. If your proposal was accepted, you and your co-presenters will each receive a confirmation e-mail giving further instructions such as due date, conference check-in, etc.

I received a confirmation. What should I do now?

Read the confirmation carefully. Your name, title, and abstract will appear in the program as shown; are they correct? Are the names of your co-presenters correct? Did we address your needs?

Can I cancel a presentation?

If you are canceling your presentation, the Office of High-Impact Practices needs to be informed as soon as possible so that your space can be assigned to someone else. Please e-mail Ashley Schmitt at

Can I add or remove presenters?

If you wish to add or remove a presenter, please e-mail Ashley Schmitt at Any new presenters will have to submit their names and contact information.
