Proposal Submission FAQs

The CSE Program Committee wants to hear from you! To ensure all CSE members have a chance to provide ‎input on educational content for CSE events, including conferences, webinars, and podcasts, we are pleased to ‎welcome session proposals from all members. Session proposals will be accepted ‎until November 4, 2022, at which point they will be reviewed by the CSE Program Committee and may be shared with ‎the CSE Education and Professional Development Committees to be considered for development of non-conference events.‎

If your session is selected by the CSE Program Committee, you will become a session sponsor. Sponsors of ‎selected sessions are responsible for working with a dedicated CSE Program Committee member to ‎develop the session, help identify and secure speakers and a moderator, and determine a suitable session ‎format. The sponsor may also choose to be a speaker and/or a moderator.

Sessions should aim to serve those in the scientific, scientific publishing, and information science ‎communities and fit within at least one of the following broad categories: Editorial; Production; Business; ‎Career Development; Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI); Scholarly Publishing Industry; Ethics; Policy; or ‎Other. CSE is particularly interested in topics that are timely, practical, and relevant to the membership.

Proposals should contain a specific description that includes clear learning objectives for attendees. For ‎example, “How to set up a social media campaign for a special issue” would be evaluated more positively than “social ‎media.” Suggested speakers should also be included; however, please note that you do not need to secure ‎speakers before submitting a session proposal. General suggestions such as “Managing Editor at society ‎journal” or “Product Specialist at Company X” are sufficient. Members are encouraged to review the latest ‎CSE Annual Meeting, Fall Symposium, and webinar presentations to ensure the suggested topic has not recently been covered.
