What's the difference between a proposal and an abstract? A proposal is a 250 word (max) document that the review committee looks at in deciding to accept or reject a submission. The abstract, however, is a 50 word (max) document that is used in the (online) program.
When should I hear back about my proposal? You will hear back by the end of January.
Where is the conference held? This year's conference will be held in the Liberal Arts building (#18) on Northern Arizona University's Flagstaff campus.
What does "rolling presentation" mean for an artwork submission? Why does this submission type look different from the others? Artwork presenters should prepare a 5-10 minute presentation. Because these pieces will be displayed in a gallery-like setting, presenters will interact with audience members as the latter group moves around. Set up materials (e.g., easels) are not guaranteed.
Can I turn in a proposal for a paper that isn't related to the theme? Of course! We want to hear about what you've been working on.
I'm not a graduate student or an undergraduate student. Can I still send in a proposal? Yes. We want to hear about what you've been working on.
