Tips for Submitting a Successful Proposal and Rules of Engagement
All proposals must be submitted online using the provided form. Complete all fields on the form to be considered. Incomplete forms will not be reviewed nor considered for ISRI2022.
The full and complete roster of speakers (and moderator if applicable) must be included in the session proposal. If a speaker changes after a proposal is accepted, the session may be subject to cancellation.
An individual may appear on no more than two session proposals either as a speaker or moderator.
Avoid all commercial bias. Sessions content must be free of commercial motive/intent. Sessions should be brand and vendor-neutral. Proposal submissions promoting a specific product, brand, service, or technology will not be considered.
Session rooms are equipped with LCD projector, screen, laptop, podium, and microphones.
Write your session description from the perspective of what attendees will gain from participating rather than what speakers will present. The audience wants to know what’s in it for them to attend your session and reviewers give a lot of consideration to how you describe the session content. In addition, the description you provide will be used to promote your session if accepted.
Session attendees want varied learning experiences so consider proposing workshops inclusive of small group exercises, real-life case studies, or large group problem-solving. Be creative with how you use the workshop time and share your content with attendees.
Sessions focused on how-to or solve problems, along with those that present innovative processes or are “forward-thinking” are appreciated by the reviewers.
ISRI provides complimentary registration to speakers of accepted proposals. Speakers are responsible for their own travel, lodging, and incidental costs to attend the convention and expo.
