Whether you have already submitted a proposal for the C2020 conference, or hope to submit a new one for C2021, guidelines for preparing a presentation proposal or a workshop proposal for the 2021 CES Annual Virtual Conference are now available on the C2021 website.
Proposals for presentations and workshops can be submitted between October 19 and November 8, 2020. As the conference is working under a strict deadline policy, there will be no extension to the proposal period.
If you submitted a proposal for C2020 and it was accepted, you will be able to retrieve it from the online proposal system and be prompted to either confirm or modify it; a special link will be sent on October 19 to the first author of the proposal for this purpose.
If you would like to submit a new proposal to deliver an online workshop or a presentation, please note the two recently added sub-themes: Impact of the pandemic on utilization; and Marginalization and utilization, bringing to five the possible sub-themes for alignment with workshops or presentations. Whatever you plan to submit, please ensure to clearly link your proposal to one (and only one) of the conference sub-themes.
If you are unsure about presenting in a virtual format, stay tuned for an upcoming video presentation on the exciting virtual platform we have selected to host the conference.
You will hear back on December 6 if your proposal is accepted, not accepted, or put on a waiting list. Once you hear that your proposal has been accepted, that’s the time to begin working on your presentation or workshop. We will be providing tools and tips on how to prepare and deliver a successful workshop or presentation virtually to all of those accepted.
In the meantime, be sure to read the conference themes and the proposal guidelines! If you can sum up your workshop or presentation idea as an ‘elevator speech’, you’re on your way.
