Regular Session—Individual proposals: Individuals may submit proposals for 15-minute talks on panels created by the conference organizers. These proposals should be no more than 300 words.

Regular Session—Panel proposals: Groups may submit proposals for 75-minute panel presentations. These proposals should be no more than 200 words per presentation plus a 150-word contextualization/justification of the panel (800 words max.).

Poster Presentations: Posters will be on display throughout the day with special times dedicated for conversations about this work. Proposals for poster presentations should be no more than 300 words.


Although we acknowledge that nothing is fully accessible, we also acknowledge that access in any community space is everyone’s responsibility and should be considered throughout presentation preparation. We ask you to take this responsibility up at every stage of your participation in the ATTW conference, from planning and writing your proposal to delivering your presentation. Please also contact the conference co-chairs with any questions, requests, or comments regarding accessibility preparations for the conference. 

Proposals should not include any identifying information, including the names and institutions of presenters.
