Call for Special Sessions

The form for submitting your special session proposals is below.

The NAAFE 2015 forum committee is responsible for developing the program agenda and sessions. This is done by grouping the submitted abstracts with similar topics/themes into unified sessions. We are asking your help to develop the program and promote collaboration by proposing special sessions related to your field of expertise.

The purpose of special sessions is to organize a session in advance with a single theme that could be composed of panels, presentations, and/or discussants with moderators, focused on timely issues related to policy, events, theory or methodology, and taking advantage of your special areas of interest and expertise

If you are interested in organizing a special session, please submit a proposal. We encourage your session proposals along the lines of the general conference themes, but we also are interested in session topics relevant to current issues, new methodologies, and/or others that merit a concentrated focus.

Session proposals will undergo peer review by the Scientific Committee, and prospective session organizers will receive acceptance decisions and/or suggestions for additions or improvements. Session proposals must be submitted electronically via the online submission form by December 7, 2014. Notification of acceptance will be sent out by December 15, 2014.
