Call for Proposals

The Call for Proposals is scheduled to open on December 1st.

Pre-Conference Workshops

We are offering optional pre-conference workshops the morning of Wednesday, May 16th, before the conference officially begins. These hands-on, specialized workshops will run from 9:00-11:30 am and have a registration fee of $25. All will take place at the I Hotel and Conference Center, except as noted.

The deadline to submit a pre-conference workshop proposal is January 12th.

Concurrent Sessions

  • Concurrent sessions are 45 minutes in length and encourage concise presentations. A limited number of 90-minute (double) sessions will be accepted for more in-depth topics.
  • We do not have any session tracks this year.
  • You will be asked to specify a target audience for your presentation (Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced). Please consider it from the perspective of a faculty/staff member with average technical skills.
  • You will be asked to select the room setup that best suits your presentation: classroom (long tables and chairs), theater (chairs only), banquet (round tables and chairs), or you may leave it up to the committee to decide.
  • We are continuing the "bring your own device" (BYOD) model. BYOD means that participants wishing to enhance their engagement in the conference sessions are encouraged to bring their own devices (laptops, tablets, phones) preloaded with apps/software recommended by presenters and listed in the session descriptions. No computer labs will be available.
  • All Mac and tablet users must bring their own HDMI or VGA adapter for the projector. Basic HDMI and VGA connections for PCs will be provided.
  • The deadline to submit a concurrent session proposal is March 4th.


FSI welcomes either digital or paper format posters describing relevant research, teaching with technology innovations, or effective program developments on your campus. Poster presenters are required to meet format, size, and technology specifics listed below, and to make available a digital or printed 1-page summary of poster highlights.

  • Paper (or fabric) format no greater than 48” x 36” or 36" x 48". Printing costs average $40-$100. Laminating is desirable, but not required.
  • Posters may be printed using Excel to tile your picture, piecing together the 8-1/2” x 11” pieces, and mounting them on paper or cardboard.
  • A digital poster presentation would consist of a web page with a mix of content (such as videos, interactive lectures, slideshows, photo albums, short games, or other elements). Technologies include web design software; screen capture or lecture capture software; presentation software; image authoring and editing tools; interactive learning object authoring tools; open-source wikis, and others.
  • Presenters should also provide a digitally available or printed 1-page summary of poster highlights for attendees to view.
  • The deadline to submit a poster proposal is March 4th.
