If you are submitting a proposal for the Annual Conference, only Thursday offers continuous 3-hour sessions. On Friday and Saturday, sessions are scheduled in 1.5 hour time blocks. If your session is 3-hours, parts 1 and 2 will have a 30-minute break separating them, and attendees may choose both sessions, or only one part. If you do not want your session split, request to present on Thursday only, or submit your proposal for a Regional Conference, which offers 3-hour sessions in the morning and afternoon.

Suggestion: Type your info into a word document, so you can use the "Review" feature to get your character count. If you paste your title, bio or abstract and it is too long, it will either cut off your info OR cause an error when you try to submit. Please check your character count BEFORE pasting!

Before proceeding, please review the NBCC guidelines for content areas/topics and for presenter categories. These are found in the explanation text, above this form.
