Selection of Presenters and Additional Information:
Deadline for submissions is February 12th, 2021.
All submissions will be reviewed by a panel of I&R peers from the AIRS Board and the Conference and Training Committees and AIRS Staff. Proposals will be scored in the following areas and with the following weights:
- Summary (20%)
- Objectives (20%)
- Tools and Techniques (20%)
- Overall quality of proposal (40%)
Selected presenters will be informed no later than February 19th, 2021.
Note that we are not able to accept all proposals because we invariably receive more proposals than available timeslots.
Note also that I&R vendors are welcome to submit proposals but the presentations must be vendor-neutral and aimed at sharing knowledge about a topic other than their product/service. The evaluation comments for vendors who veer off that road are always very direct!
If you have questions, please contact Chiara Cameron-Wood at firstname.lastname@example.org
The AIRS Board and membership appreciate your interest in promoting I&R training.
Why Should I Present?
"The best part of presenting was being able to present with colleagues who I had never met in person. Being there with them and the audience was such a great opportunity to create connections. Plus, I really enjoyed talking to people after the session and seeing how what we shared benefited them. It was very rewarding."
- Mariam Schrage, #AIRS2019 Presenter
