|2013 Conference: Call for Proposals for Innovative Sessions|
2013 AHRD International Research Conference in the Americas
Call for Proposals for Innovative Sessions
The Academy of Human Resource Development invites proposals for Innovative Sessions during the 2013 AHRD International Research Conference in the Americas. Proposals are especially encouraged from SIGs (Special Interest Groups) in AHRD.
Innovative Sessions are an opportunity to present new and innovative Human Resource Development work through creative, interactive formats that do not fit the traditional categories covered in the Call for Papers (for which proposals were due on September 10). Innovative Sessions should be strategically aligned with AHRD’s vision (http://www.ahrd.org/displaycommon.cfm?an=2) and enhance the learning of participants.
Innovative Session submissions are non-refereed. They will be scheduled in the conference program and published in a non-refereed section of the proceedings.
How to Propose an Innovative Session
A proposal for an Innovative session must include two distinct elements.
Part 1: Description of the Proposed Session
Part 2: Proposed Submission for the Conference Proceedings
How will Proposals be evaluated?
Space for Innovative Sessions during the 2013 conference is very limited, and we anticipate a highly competitive selection process. Proposals are reviewed by a committee (not blind reviewed). Sessions will be selected according to the criteria below as well as to optimize the innovativeness and diversity of the sessions (topic and type) across the conference.
Proposals (and the accompanying up to 2000-word submission) will be evaluated by the committee on the following criteria:
