Call for Proposals for TechExpo 2016

You’re an 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 we want you to think about TechExpo as your secret lair, the place where you replenish your tool belt, re-connect with your sidekicks, and renew your purpose.
But who keeps the secret lair stocked with new tools, techniques and training? You do, of course, with your presentations, panel discussions, learning labs and information tables.
So get ready to contribute to the next TechExpo, on April 15 at the Washington Duke Inn, 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.
Don’t procrastinate: 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
