The following are some of the opportunities to contribute to the ASCUE Conference as a presenter.

Regular Sessions

Session Presentations are 45 minutes, including time set aside for audience questions and engagement.   We encourage innovative, interactive presentation formats.

You may choose to submit a peer-reviewed or non peer-reviewed paper with a regular session. If so, please follow these guidelines. All papers submitted will be published in the conference proceedings.

NOTE: Paper submission is NOT required for a regular session.

Poster Sessions

Poster sessions are a great opportunity to get your feet wet at ASCUE.  The session length will be 45 minutes. Poster sessions are an opportunity to present yourself and your research or content in a more personal setting. This setting allows the presenter to make contact with conference attendees. Remember that attendees can move about the room and interact with several presenters during the time frame so a clear, concise, and creative poster will draw more attendees to listen and speak with you.
If your poster session is selected you will receive information on size and tips for creating your poster.


ASCUE is looking for individuals who would be willing to serve as a chair or a member of a panel discussion at this year’s ASCUE conference and panel topic ideas.  Panels are the perfect opportunity for someone who wants to be involved, but may not be able to make the commitment of preparing a 45-minute presentation. Panel members will be provided with a series of questions prior to the panel discussion, but will also be asked questions by the attendees. Panel chairs will also be needed. Chairs will be asked to formulate questions for the panel and to facilitate the discussion.

If you have an idea for a panel, would be willing to participate in a panel or lead one as the chair, please contact MJ Clark at


ASCUE annually offers a selection of workshop sessions.  Our workshops are 90-minute sessions designed to give presenters an opportunity to delve deeper into their particular topic of discussion. These sessions typically provide attendees an opportunity for hands-on experience with the topic. To encourage a wide selection of quality workshops, presenters are given a stipend equal to 50% of their workshop ticket sales.  The ASCUE board makes the final decision of which workshops are offered. If a submitted proposal for a workshop is declined, the ASCUE program chair may still contact the presenter to determine if they’d be interested in sharing the topic in a standard presentation slot.
