Thank you for your interest in submitting a presentation proposal for the 2015 EERS conference.
All the proposals submitted to EERS will undergo a blinded peer review process; each proposal is reviewed and independently rated by three reviewers with expertise in the areas of the submission. Because of evidence of intermittent problems with the online submission system, the deadline to propose has been extended to December 18, 2015. You will be notified in late January 2016 of the status of your submission.
If the same individual submits multiple proposals, only one proposal, if accepted, will be selected for presentation at the conference. This is to ensure the maximum level of participation from the evaluation community. To submit a proposal, select the type from the list below. On the following pages, you will be asked to submit the necessary information by either typing it into the fields directly, or by cutting and pasting from a word processing program. For all types of presentations, it is important to address the conference theme in your proposal - Improving Outcomes, Building Knowledge: Finding What Works. Once you submit the information, you will see a screen indicating that you have successfully proposed and issuing a submission ID number. We recommend that you write this number down for future reference.
- Individual Presentations of approximately 20 minutes that will be grouped with related individual presentations into 90 minute concurrent sessions.
- Panel Presentations consisting of approximately three individual presentations of 20 minutes each on related topics in a 90 minute session.
- Skill-Building Sessions focused on providing specific methodologies and/or professional skills in either 90 minute or 45 minute sessions.
- Student Presentations and Posters through which undergraduate or graduate students have an opportunity to give a 20 minute individual presentation or a poster session on evaluation methodologies and/or findings for which they are substantially responsible.
- Ignite Sessions are a new offering at the EERS conference, a 5-minute PowerPoint presentation with a maximum of 20 slides that automatically advance every 15 seconds.
Any questions or comments on the submission of a presentation proposal can be directed to the Program Committee Co-Chairs, Lacy Fabian, PhD (LFabian@mitre.org) or Justin Piff, MSSW (JPiff@equalmeasure.org).
