Superheroes, when the TechExpo Signal appears in the night sky, you can’t procrastinate! You’ve got to pull the Instant Costume Change Lever, jump into the fray and get that proposal written!
Remember that you’re the Everyday Superhero—a member of the team that keeps the business running, answers the call for help whenever and wherever tech support is needed, and fights the never-ending battle for truth, justice and the Duke way. And that it’s you who keeps TechExpo, your secret lair, stocked with new tools, techniques and training.
So get moving! Start by pulling together:
- The title of a session you’d like to run
- The proposal type, from these choices:
- Formal presentation (one or two presenters speaking on a topic, followed by questions and comments from the audience)
- Panel discussion (a moderator and panel members discussing a topic, followed by questions and comments from the audience)
- Birds of a Feather session (a moderated small group discussion on a topic of interest)
- Poster or information table (an academic-style poster on display throughout the conference, with times designated for presenters to be able to answer questions)
- Laboratory session (Participants use their own laptops in guided instruction)
- A preliminary abstract (100-250 words) of the session (If your proposal is accepted, you’ll have the opportunity to revise the abstract before the program is published.)
When you’ve got all of this collected, complete the TechExpo 2016 Call for Proposals form to submit your proposal.
All proposals are due by Feb. 24.
After you get that done, you can slip off that superhero tool belt, relax, bookmark this site for updates, and follow us on Twitter. @DukeTechExpo
