Call for 2016 Proposals

The dust has finally settled (somewhat) from our new website design, so we have finally opened up the proposal submission process for the 2016 42ns Annual ITBE Convention. 

Due to the lateness of opening we are keeping the submission window open until November 30, 2015 to allow for two full months for proposal submissions. 

You will find the submission section under the "Events" tab on our new website home page. 

Some updates on the submission process from last year:

1) Plenaries and Featured Speakers will submit proposals directly to: 

2) Exhibitors and Publishers will submit proposals to: 

3) All other submissions will be submitted through the website.

4) The abstract word limit is 50 words. The abstract will also serve as the session description in the published convention book.

5) There will be an uploaded proposal description with a 300 word limit. DO NOT put any identifying information on this document as it will be used for scoring. 

Thank you all again for your patience as we worked through the growing pains of our new website. We are excited to finally start receiving all the exciting proposals!   

Thank you and Good Luck!
