This is a relatively new session format for the EERS conference. Each Ignite session is a 5-minute PowerPoint presentation, with a maximum of 20 slides that automatically advance every 15 seconds. The presenter is challenged to create well-designed slides, each with a concise message. This exciting format is meant to “ignite” the audience on a subject. Presenters who submit under this format will initially submit the same title/abstract/synopsis/and bio as for other presentation formats; however, they will be required to provide their Power Point presentation 2-weeks in advance of the conference for merging with the other ignite sessions into a single auto-advancing presentation.

Titles are limited by the submission system to 110 characters. Do not exceed this number.
The name, title, and affiliation of the presenters (as you would like them to appear in the printed program)
Please provide the following information for the point of contact for this presentation

Selection of the appropriate categories from the following two lists will help the program committee create cohesive groupings of presentations for concurrent sessions. Select all that apply for each.

An abstract, not to exceed 300 words, that details the evaluation topic, how the topic relates to the conference theme, project background and goals, methods, results, conclusions and implications. Do not identify yourself in this text. Also, if accepted, you will be expected to provide a presentation that closely reflects what you have proposed. Significant changes to your content will not be acceptable.
A one-sentence synopsis of your presentation (which must be different from the title of the presentation). This will be printed verbatim in our conference program, if your presentation is accepted. Please proofread this sentence closely. In addition, make sure that it is clear, accurate, and understandable to a diverse evaluation audience and represents what you will be presenting.
A short bio, not to exceed 75 words, for each presenter. This information will be printed verbatim in the conference packet, if your presentation is accepted. Please proofread this text closely. It is important to include information about your areas of evaluation expertise, the breadth of your experience in evaluation and evaluation research, and relevant publications.

By submitting a proposal, you indicate your agreement to the following: • All presenters of accepted proposals will register for the conference and will present as scheduled. (There is no discount or waiver of the registration fee for presenters, and no refunds of the registration fee.) • The designated contact person will contact all presenters to notify them of the status of the proposal. For accepted proposals, the designated contact person will notify all presenters of the necessity of registering for the conference (see the paragraph above). • Presenters consent to be photographed and have their photographs displayed on the EERS website. • Changes to the content of the proposal or the listed presenters can only be made with approval by EERS. Failure to register or appear for your presentation constitutes a breach of professional trust and will harm your chances of participating in future EERS conferences and events.
