AFS Review: Did You Know...?

You Should Start Your Meeting Proposal Now Even If You Can't Finish It

Wednesday, March 6, 2019   (0 Comments)
Posted by: Lorraine Cashman

This is generally good advice, but especially important for those of you who intend to be part of a preorganized session: you should submit your own information to AFS as soon as possible. Remember: you don't have to finish your proposal, you just have to start it to give your session chair an important head start on submitting the session proposal by March 31. We recommend that you complete these steps by March 15.

Instructions for Individuals in Preorganized Sessions

  • Register for the meeting; your registration confirmation will have a link to the proposal submission portal.
  • Sign up/in at the proposal submission portal to:
    • Submit your personal information (name and email required, affiliation optional) and indicate your privacy preferences. You will receive a Personal ID in the confirmation that your submission is complete. If you are a Forum participant, submit this Personal ID to your session chair.
    • If you will give a paper, diamond or media presentation, or if you are a discussant on a paper panel, submit your preliminary presentation information. Discussants should enter "discussant" as the presentation title, and leave the abstract field blank. You will receive a Presentation ID in the confirmation that your submission has been received. Give this Presentation ID to your session chair.

You may edit your individual presentation information (title, 100-word abstract, keywords, AV needs) through the March 31 deadline.
