2013 Proposal Period Open March 1 - March 31

The 2013 Annual Meeting Paper Proposal Period

The proposal period will begin at 9:00am (Eastern) on Friday March 1 and will close at 11:30pm (Eastern) on Sunday March 31.

The Proposal Process

All proposals must be submitted online through the proposal system. No proposals will be accepted by email. You may not submit a proposal for anyone else.

To submit a proposal, login to the website and select the Submit Paper Proposal link from the Paper Proposal System menu. We strongly recommend that you view the Online Proposal System Guide before submitting your proposal. This step by step guide with screenshots will help you understand the process from start to finish. A guide for PhD students submitting a proposal is also available.

Key Helps for the Proposal Process

We get many requests each year for recommendations on how to craft a quality proposal. We've put together several key features that every proposal should have and published it on the website. Click here to view our Tips for Crafting a Quality Proposal.

Recommendations for PhD student papers may be emailed directly to us or attached as a file with the proposal. We have created a guide for professors on the information we need. Click here to view it. Ph.D. students submitting a proposal should send the guide to their sponsoring professor.

There is a separate proposal form for those who want to propose and organize an entire session. To propose a session, select the Propose a Session link in the Paper Proposal System menu.
