The AiTC Education Planning Committee is looking for a wide range of session topics, including new approaches to existing models. Consider these attributes when developing a session proposal:
The AiTC Education Planning Committee will review and select all keynote and breakout sessions included in the conference schedule. While proposal submission does not guarantee selection, we will explore opportunities to include the wealth of expertise represented in proposals received.
Please note, overlapping of spotlight themes and topics may occur and does not impact your session selection.
The AiTC Education Planning Committee has final decision on session schedule arrangement. If there is a specific date and/or time that cannot work for you, please include this information in your submission proposal email for consideration.
Speakers receive free conference admission for the day of their presentation. Full conference registration is also available to speakers at a discounted rate of $175.
Audio and visual equipment such as flip charts, easels, laptops, and LCD projector will be provided by AiTC organizers if prior notice is received.
Presenters are required to cover travel and lodging expenses.
