CFP: Emerging Leadership Design (June 2016 - Montclair State University)

As the ELD16 Program Committee continues to work with those who submitted proposals by the early bird deadline, the Call for Proposals remains open. We are still accepting proposals for workshop and current sessions but we are especially interested in SPARKS! session submissions. For details on session type, see below.

ELD16 will take place on June 2nd and 3rd, 2016, on the campus of Montclair State University. The theme for this year’s conference is Adopt & Adapt: Connecting Learning to Life


ELD uses a “rolling submission” model for proposals: every proposal will be reviewed and given feedback within 2 weeks of submission. Your submission will either be accepted or you’ll be provided feedback from our reviewers and offered an opportunity to revise and resubmit. We’ll continue this process of accepting or giving constructive feedback to proposals until all presentation slots are filled, or February 29th, 2016 - whichever comes first.

Why this model? The revise-and-resubmit cycles make our conference’s presentations the best they can be for our attendees, and accepting excellent proposals as they arrive is a great way to let our prospective audience know what to look forward to even before the whole program is finalized. In addition, this model is easier on our reviewers as we don’t get a rush of proposals on deadline day.

How do you submit a proposal? Go to…/eld-call-for-proposals-faq/ to read some brief instructions on what we need in your submission, and then go to supply that information. We’ll be in touch to confirm your submission was complete, and then let you know within a couple weeks the response from our reviewers.
