The Convention Co-Chair for Audiology, Jennifer Simpson, and the Convention Co-Chair for Speech-Language Pathology, Kelly Farquharson, welcome you to submit a proposal to present at the 2023 ASHA Convention. In partnership with the Convention Program Committee, they are working to offer a wide array of sessions to meet the continuing education needs of communication sciences and disorders professionals. Proposals that reflect our theme, "Igniting Innovation," are encouraged.
The 2023 ASHA Convention will be a traditional in-person event with some virtual components. Please thoroughly read the updated Submission Guidelines before you log in to submit your proposal. We have made some new refinements to the session formats and other areas. The guidelines outline the submission process, define terms, and provide explanations of information required to submit a proposal.
Proposals may be submitted for any of the following session formats:
Read the full description of each session format offered at the ASHA Convention.
The education program covers 31 topic areas related to the professions. You will be asked to select a topic area for your proposal, so read the criteria carefully.
Before submitting your proposal to the Call for Papers, it is extremely important that you read, understand, and agree to follow the principles, guidelines, and procedures outlined in the Author Agreement and Disclosure Policy.
**IMPORTANT**: All authors listed on the proposal are required to complete the disclosure form and submit a bio by Wednesday, April 19, 11:59 p.m., Pacific Time. If ANY author does not complete their disclosure, the ENTIRE PROPOSAL will be administratively withdrawn. This is an important change to our policy, which previously stated that only the author would be removed.
Authors of 1-hour sessions have the opportunity to allow a recording of their session to be included in the ASHA Learning Pass, ASHA's extensive catalog of credible, curated online course content. Having your session in the Learning Pass post-Convention greatly expands the reach of your presentation, allowing more members to benefit from your content.
If submitters select “yes” or “maybe” to the question in the Call for Papers that asks if they want their session considered AND the session is accepted, ASHA Professional Development will consider the session for inclusion in the Learning Pass. Due to technical, time, and space limitations, we can only include a limited number of sessions.
If the session is selected, each presenting author will receive an email letting them know and asking them to complete an additional agreement. If any of the presenting authors decide they do notwant their session included, they can opt not to fill out the agreement and the session will not be included. If allpresenting authors complete the agreement, your live ASHA Convention presentation (audio and slides only) will be recorded on-site.
Recorded sessions will become part of the Learning Pass (accessible only to registered learners, within our ASHA Learning Center) and be eligible for continuing education credit (ASHA CEUs or professional development hours) for up to 5 years (the standard period for which ASHA typically offers courses for CE credit).
