Proposals are now being accepted to present or preside during
the November 2012 Conference. All proposals
to present a session, workshop, or panel must be submitted online. Late or incomplete
proposals will not be considered. Complete contact information
is required for all presenters. Additional presenters cannot
be added or substituted after submission of this proposal without
the recommendation of the Program Coordinator and approval of
the Conference Coordinator. Only persons whose names appear
in the Conference Program are official AMATYC speakers.
Two presentation formats are available: 50-minute sessions
and 2-hour workshops. Presentations may involve single or multiple
presenters and must not promote or sell a commercially available
product or service. Please avoid using the proper name of a
commercial product in your session or workshop title.
Sessions may include active attendee participation, lecture,
or panel discussion. The two-hour format is reserved for workshops
and must include active attendee participation, an in-depth
treatment of a topic, and substantial handouts. Although a computer lab will not be available, computer workshop proposals will be considered if the workshop can be presented without focusing on a commercial product. (Note: Microsoft Excel is standardly available on most computers, so is exempt from this exclusion.) For computer workshops, attendees will be asked to bring a personal laptop.

topics that are illustrative of implementing the Beyond
Crossroads standards. The five Implementation Standards,

Please be as flexible as possible regarding the days you are
willing to present and limit your equipment request to only
that which is absolutely necessary. AMATYC does not supply computers or graphing calculators for presentations. Also, requests for LCD computer projectors (data projectors) and Internet will only be considered if they are essential for the presentation. Data projectors will not usually be provided for PowerPoint presentations. Presenters are encouraged to bring their own equipment or use overhead transparencies. If your presentation
involves information from the Internet, see "Giving
Presentations Without a Live Internet Connection."
Each proposal will be acknowledged by an email receipt. If
you do not receive an email receipt within a few days after
submission, please contact the AMATYC Office immediately. Letters of invitation to present at the conference are issued
When proposals have more than one presenter, the first person
listed becomes the official AMATYC contact who will receive
all correspondence regarding the proposal and must agree
to keep the copresenter(s) informed. All presenters are
required to register and pay the conference registration rate.
AMATYC does not offer a reduced registration rate for speakers
and does not pay honoraria or expenses.
Please also consider submitting your presentation (including
paper, handouts, slides, etc.) to the electronic proceedings
of the conference. To participate, send your materials to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 30th following the conference.
