Community & Group Event Guidelines

Community & Group Event Guidelines

The online proposal submission system has closed! Notifications of proposal status will be emailed to submitters only by mid-January 2020. If you have any questions, please email us at

Other opportunities to present in Baltimore will be posted soon--stay tuned.

Sessions that should be submitted as Community & Group Events include the annual events listed below, along with other social and networking sessions. 

This type of submission is for the listed events--NOT for individual submissions within those events. For example: the leader of the Community of Colleges, Universities, and Research would submit the poster session. Poster presenters would submit SEPARATELY directly to the community--not through this system.
