What you will Learn!

Workshop Logo

In partnership with the University Library, the University and Graduate Writing Centers will guide learners through the steps of creating a successful proposal. You can bring your own Call for Proposals and proposal draft or work with samples to write a concise, compelling abstract to optimize your chances of being accepted to the conference. You will also learn the importance of creating your own "research space" and marketing your work with keywords and relevant terms that may later be indexed in databases that host conference papers and proceedings.

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Identify and respond to key elements of a Call for Proposals (CFP)
  • Understand the elements of a successful conference proposal
  • Write a concise, compelling abstract
  • Market your work with keywords and relevant terms for intended conference and field of study.
