Types of Submissions

IMPORTANT: Before you start your submission process:

  1. Read the general rules for convention participation.
  2. If you are an individual paper submitter, lightning round presentation submitter, or a session (panel or roundtable) organizer, renew your ASEEES membership first - you must be a member to submit. You must enter your CV information  (NOTE: If you are a panel/roundtable participant but NOT the organizer, you do not need to become a member until the time of the acceptance notification in the spring.  See the membership rules.)
  3. The session/paper title word limit is 20; session/paper description word limit is 250.
  4. Be sure to gather all required information first. You cannot save an incomplete proposal online.
  5. Ask all session participants to create a profile and update their "My Information" section in the ASEEES Member Site.
  6. Ask all session participants to enter their CV information in the "CV Information" box under the "View/Edit Information" tab NOW. This information will be used in the online submission process. It is essential that they enter the CV information at least 4 hours before you submit the proposal. The data is scheduled to synch every 2 hours. This is essential.  Do not wait until just before the submission deadline.
  7. Ask all session participants for their exact last name as they appear in the ASEEES Member directory so that you can search for them in the online submission process.
  8. Please review the Session Categories before you submit your proposal. Note that the session categories are used are strictly for scheduling purposes only and have no bearing on the proposal's acceptance.  
  9. For a Book Discussion Roundtable, use the Roundtable submission process. In the session, title, enter "Book Discussion:" followed by the title of the book and the author.
  10. Step-by-step instructions for submitting a proposal are available (PDF).
  11. IMPORTANT: In 2018 the convention dates overlap with Hanukkah.  It’s essential to ask all participants if they will have scheduling conflicts with Hanukkah services or activities and enter any scheduling requests in the proposal submission. Scheduling requests must be made at the time of submission. Once sessions have been scheduled it is unlikely they can be moved, which could result in the loss of participants.
