Professional Development Committee: Meeting Proposals

Preparing a conference proposal: advice and samples

If you plan to submit a paper proposal to the SMT, you may find the materials below helpful. Included are Professor Joseph Straus’s handout on writing a proposal, created for the 2007 session of the Professional Development Committee, and a group of proposals selected from those considered by the 2010 and 2011 Program Committees to be particularly successful. Please note that modeling a proposal on one of those shown below will not guarantee acceptance; furthermore, a proposal using an approach or a format not represented here may be well received. We are grateful to Professor Straus and the authors of the proposals below for permission to post their materials here.
