Conference Theme

The conference theme is Stewardship 2020: Caring for the Past in an Uncertain Future

You can read more about the conference theme in our call for proposals.

Call for Session Proposals

We invite proposals for sessions engaging with the many ways we steward our places, collections, and communities. Most conference sessions are 50 minutes. To ensure time for questions and discussion, we recommend no more than three presentations per session.

Our complete call for sessions is available online. You can also download a PDF of the call for proposals for easy printing.

We prefer submissions of complete 50-minute sessions comprising two or three presentations. We also accept proposals for individual presentations, with the understanding that the conference committee may combine these into a session.

To submit a session proposal, please read the call for proposals and fill out the online form. You will need to submit:

  • The name and contact information for your session coordinator
  • Your session's title
  • A brief abstract of your session (50 words or less) for the conference program
  • Name, title, affiliation, and a brief bio for each presenter
  • Your session's format (panel, roundtable, workshop, etc.)
  • The level for which your session is intended (introductory, intermediate, advanced)
  • A description (250 words or less) of your session, identifying its main objectives, how you will be addressing them, its relation to the conference theme, and its intended audience.

Proposals are due by January 31, 2020.
