B.1 Individual Speaking/Organising Proposal
If the proposal is accepted as part of the conference programme, is the person named above as the proposal submitter the same person who will be attending the conference and speaking in front of the conference audience?*
Please provide the following details for the person who will be attending the conference and speaking/organising in front of the conference audience:
If the proposal is accepted, the information originally provided about the proposed speaker/organiser will be reconfirmed for accuracy before being published in conference materials and on the website. Any changes in proposed speakers/organisers have to be agreed upon by the conference organisers.
B.3 Main Speaker/Organiser Biographical Information
Please evaluate and indicate the proposed main speaker/organiser's presentation experience.*
Please provide details of three of the most recent relevant presentations which the proposed main speaker/organiser has been involved with.
Please provide a short biographical description of the proposed main speaker/organiser (not to exceed 200 words).*
Samples of previous speaking engagements can be useful in evaluating a proposal. If available, provide a link to the main speaker/organiser speaking at another conference here.
B.2 Co-Presenter Policy
Under almost all circumstances, presentations may only be given by one speaker. For reasons of time and cohesiveness, joint presentations are highly discouraged, are not viewed favourably in the review process and are only approved in rare and exceptional circumstances.
Knowing the policy above, do you intend to include co-presenter?*
Conference organiser policy allows for co-presenters in only a very narrow set of circumstances, when justification has been well defined and an additional speaker adds clear and measurable value to the presentation and the conference programme, which would be impossible with a single speaker. If you think the presentation cannot be given by only one speaker and the co-presenter proposal meets the criteria above, please complete the following:
Please justify below why you feel the proposal is an exception to the stated policy and how having a co-presenter will add clear and measurable value to the conference programme. Please remember that proposals submitted with co-presenters are viewed unfavourably during evaluation.*
B.2A Speakers and Roles
Please describe the role of the main speaker/organiser from the previous section. (e.g., would the main organiser listed above act as moderator, present a viewpoint or contribute to or facilitate the session in some other way?)
Also, in some cases, the session may be led by someone other than the proposed main speaker/organiser already listed. If so, please indicate who this will be and describe their role:
In addition to the leader/organiser, please indicate below the names of those who will be invited to speak/co-facilitate, their background as it relates to the proposal and whether or not they have already indicated their willingness to take part (Optional for workshop proposals, required for Discussion or Debate and Special Focus Session proposals).
Please note selected speakers are subject to approval by the conference organisers. Furthermore, should this proposal be accepted and changes to the listed speakers below made at a later date, conference organisers must confirm inclusion before an invitation can be extended.
Additionally, conference organsiers do not allow presenters to appear in the main programme more than once. If a proposed speaker in an accepted session has already been included in the main conference agenda, they will not be included in an additional session. Sessions organisers will be given the opportunity to choose an alternate speaker, not already appearing in the conference programme, should this situation arise.
Person #1 (subject to conference organisers approval)
Person #2 (subject to conference organisers approval)
Person #3 (subject to conference organisers approval)
If a proposal has more than 3 potential additional speakers, please communicate directly with conference organisers.
Sessions with multiple speakers should be as dynamic and interactive as possible. How will the leader/facilitator of the session ensure dialog amongst those speaking and prompt discussion with the audience?
