NACDEP Conference 2022 PROPOSAL SUBMISSIONS now being accepted!



Request for Proposals

We hope that you are as eager as we are to share your work and learn from colleagues when we gather in person in Indianapolis for our 2022 NACDEP Conference. Please consider submitting a proposal for a presentation, workshop or poster. Selected proposals are peer-reviewed by other NACDEP members, ensuring they are of high quality.

Things to note about submitting this year:

  • New! There is a FIRM deadline for submissions: Wednesday, January 19, 2022 at 11:59 pm EST. The board and conference committee have agreed to hold fast to this deadline and not offer any extension. This will allow us to stay on schedule for timely reviews, acceptance, session planning, and registration. All proposals must be submitted and complete by January 19. Be sure to block off ample time between now and then to prepare your proposal submission(s).
  • In order to meet the January 19 deadline, we are allowing some additional time for submission on the front end, beginning November 1, 2021. We will send periodic reminders and notifications of the number of proposals received to date in the weeks preceding the deadline.
  • We are using Oxford Abstracts again this year to manage submissions and reviews. Submissions can be entered here:

    • You will need to create a login with Oxford Abstracts, if you do not have one yet. (Note: If you choose to login with Google or LinkedIn, any notifications about your submissions will go the email address affiliated with those accounts.) We recommend you login with your institutional email address so your submission will match your NACDEP conference registration and membership email.
    • You may save partial submissions and edit complete or incomplete proposals up until the deadline.
    • Please be sure to add all authors that you would like to be included in the program since there will be no later date to do that.
    • Format Options:
      • 25-minute presentation (20-minute presentation; 5 minute Q&A)
      • 75-minute learning workshop
      • 3-hour pre-conference workshop (Sunday, June 5, 1:00-4:00)
      • 3-hour post-conference workshop (Weds, June 8, 1:00-4:00)
      • Poster
      • Virtual presentation (25 to 75-minutes) to be presented during online NACDEP series, Fall 2022-Spring 2023*
  • *While we are committed to a full, in-person conference on June 5-8, 2022, we realize that some members may still be unable to travel due to health, university policy, or other restrictions. In order to accommodate prospective presenters who cannot participate in the conference but would like to submit their work for peer review, we are offering a limited number of Virtual Presentation opportunities to take place in a separate virtual professional development series to be held between September 2022 and April 2023. Submissions for virtual presentations are due on January 19, 2022 following the same submission process as conference proposals.
  • Increase your chances of success! Check out the video on submitting a successful proposal.
  • More info about the conference can be found on our website.

    Serve as a reviewer! Whether or not you submit a proposal this year, please consider serving as a peer reviewer. The window to review proposals is January 20-February 1, 2022. Each reviewer will be assigned up to 5 proposals. If you are not submitting a proposal but are willing to review, send your name and area(s) of expertise to Kris Parker at [email protected]. You will be added to the list.

    Please contact Kris with any questions regarding submissions or reviews. Thank you for playing your part to make this a great conference!
