10 Jul Make ASIL 2016 Great! Submit a Proposal
I am a huge fan of ASIL’s Annual Meeting for a whole host of reasons. I like to see old friends, make new acquaintances, and spend inordinate amounts of time talking in the hallways. The book sales on Saturday morning is a highlight of my year (no comment on what that may say about my life). But what really holds the event together is it’s programming. And while some of that programming comes from the Programming Committee leadership, many (if not most) of the panels have their origins in good ideas from members like you and me. So, with that in mind, I thought I’d pass along the following item that I just received from Tillar House:
The Annual Meeting Committee of the American Society for International Law (ASIL) is currently accepting proposal submissions for its 110th Annual Meeting, held March 30 – April 2, 2016, in Washington, DC. This year’s meeting will be held under the theme “Charting New Frontiers in International Law.”
The Committee will prioritize session proposals that involve non-traditional formats, such as interviews, Q&A roundtables, lectures, poster sessions, or the use of multimedia or interactive audience participation features. In addition, the Committee is committed to expanding diversity in the issues and voices represented at the Annual Meeting, and is excited to present a track specifically focused on professional and academic development.
Submissions are due Monday, July 20th, 2015, and the Committee will notify proposers regarding the status of their submission via email in the fall of 2015. For instructions, more information on the Annual Meeting, and to submit a proposal, please visit http://asil.org/annualmeeting
I’m excited to see the call for new presentation formats and new voices. So, please, if you have an interesting idea, please send it along to ASIL! The Annual Meeting will be all the better for it.
