2014 Annual Meeting: Call for Symposia, Workshops, and Forums



This is the first call for submission of proposals for Symposia, Forums, and Workshops for the 67th Annual Meeting of SRM. Following are criteria for these events:

Symposium - A set of presentations that covers a distinct topic. A published proceedings or summary of presentations may be provided to convey the information beyond the event but is not required. The organizer is completely responsible for any publication that might result from the event. Symposia may include one or more organizations or agencies that will partner in developing, promoting, and conducting the event.

Forum- A set of presentations that covers a distinct topic similar to a symposium. However, forums must include a discussion period(s) for the audience to participate. A written record of the event is not required, but if conducted it is the responsibility of the organizer.

Workshop - A meeting featuring presentations designed to update or educate a specific group for training, becoming certified, or receiving credit on a topic. Participants would be expected to attend the entire workshop. Workshops may be sponsored by any organization or agency that partners with SRM without SRM being involved.

Proposals for Symposia, Forum, and Workshops are due by May 6, 2013. Click Here for information and instructions for submitting symposia, forums, and workshops. Please direct your questions to: Mike Turpin ([email protected]).
