Podcast: Writing a Successful Proposal for a Conference Presentation

In this podcast, we feature insights from three academic professionals on writing a winning academic conference proposal. Our interviewees have submitted successful proposals of their own and served as proposal reviewers at various conferences as well. They give their take on what they look for in a submission and advice on approaching the writing process.

Our interviews include:

Elizabeth Unger, Vice Provost for Academic Services and Technology, Dean of Continuing Education, and Professor of Computing and Information Sciences at Kansas State University

Jeff Bullington, Data Services and Government Information Librarian at the University of Kansas

Veronica Diaz, Associate Director, EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative.
