BBCB Proposal Guidelines

BBCB will accept proposals in two formats: Traditional Concurrent Workshops and Poster Sessions.

Traditional Concurrent Workshops (75 minutes)

A concurrent session offers the opportunity to present on a topic or program and discuss its relevance. The goal is to provide colleagues and/or students with information that can apply to their own work and be used to increase their effectiveness. Each session will last 75 minutes and we ask presenters to reserve at least 10 to 15 minutes at the end of the session for audience questions. Rooms will be equipped with electronic presentation equipment.

Proposals must include:

 Related track
 Abstract (100 characters or less)
 Presentation objectives
 Presentation outline
 Short, appealing title that highlights your work

Poster Session Presentations (45 minutes)

Poster sessions are visual presentations that give speakers an opportunity to speak to audiences in an informal setting. Poster presentations will occur in a designated area and the presenter must provide an informational poster about a topic, best practice or theory that relates to one of the four Summit tracks. No A/V equipment will be available.

Presentation Poster requirements:

 Presentation boards should measure no larger than 3 feet tall and 6 feet wide.
 Title should be legible from at least 20 feet.
 The title should be short and snappy and highlight your subject matter.
