WHAT: Creating Successful Conference Proposals

If you’ve ever thought about presenting at a conference, this presentation aims to give you the tools you need to get started.  Three archivists will speak about their experiences with conference proposals, both as presenters and as a program committee member, with time for Q&A.  Following that, attendees will have the opportunity to discuss their ideas for sessions and connect with potential presenting partners.

What you will learn:

  • How to choose a topic and find other presenters
  • How to put together the submission
  • What makes for a strong proposal
  • What criteria are program committees looking for in submissions


  • Andrea Bainbridge, University Archivist, DePaul University.
  • Laura Alagna, Digital Curation Assistant, Northwestern University
  • Anne Thomason, Archivist and Special Collections Librarian, Lake Forest College.
