Concurrent Programs

The 2018 ASCA Conference Committee is currently accepting program proposals for the 2018 ASCA Annual Conference! The program proposals being solicited include several different session formats to enable attendees to "Light the Path Forward".  These formats include: Concurrent Sessions, Poster Sessions, ASCA Talks, and Round Table Sessions.  Below is a description of each type of presentation:

  • Concurrent Program Sessions – Traditional 60-minute presentation sessions that are focused on the learning priorities of the organization.
  • Poster Sessions– a visually-appealing presentation of information, which may include drawings, photographs, charts, graphs, and textual data. Poster sessions allow viewers to study information and discuss it with their presenter one-on-one. The poster should efficiently communicate your topic to the audience. Poster sessions may present a description of an innovative idea or program, an analysis of a practical problem-solving effort, or a report of a research study in progress or that has been completed.
  • ASCA Talks Sessions– ASCA Talks are the ASCA version of “TED talks”. These sessions are approximately 15 minutes about a topic that is trending and relevant in our field. Please submit a link to a brief 30 second to 1 minute video clip of your presentation with your proposal.
  • Roundtable Sessions– These are 60 minute pre-planned discussions that are designed to facilitate conversation among peers on a topic relevant to the field (Please note: there is generally no A/V available for roundtable sessions).

Program proposals for the aforementioned session types should demonstrate clear evidence of planning, organization, content expertise or experience, clearly stated learning outcomes and objectives, and be relevant to the field of student conduct.

When submitting your program proposal, please keep in mind the following:

-Provide accurate information for any and all co-presenters;

-Scheduling conflicts may occur and may not be resolved if all co-presenters are not submitted to the Conference Committee in a timely manner;

-The abstract provided in the proposal will be included in conference promotional materials; and,

-Presenters will be responsible for supplying all display materials and handouts.

Program proposals will be reviewed by the following criteria:

-Abstract, description, and learning objectives are clearly articulated;

-Abstract and description are clearly related to student conduct; and,

-Proposals should focus on the content of the presentation, the purpose and goals of ASCA, and/or an ASCA Committee or Community of Practice topic area.
