You are limited to a total of three presentations, being the lead on up to two, not including research briefs and posters. The scheduling process will not be edited for the secondary presenter.

Please carefully read all the information below as well as review the criteria, guidelines, and format descriptions before submitting your proposal. Helpful resources including frequently asked questions, archived webinars, and upcoming proposal submission conference calls are included.

Here are the descriptions of the different format choices. You will need to choose a format when you begin the submission process.

Per the submission guidelines, only one presentation format may be chosen for each topic submitted. Multiple format submissions for the same or similar topics will not be accepted.

Online Submission

Back by popular demand, PAEA is again using an online submission system that members have found intuitive and user-friendly. Submitters are required to create a username and password. This system allows users to access and edit their proposals until the final deadline.

The deadline to submit a proposal is Monday, June 1, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. ET.


An email notification will automatically be sent upon completion of your submission. If you do not receive an email notification, please contact Sheryl Vermont to confirm your submission is complete.

The PAEA Conference Council will review all proposals in a blinded process; acceptance and non-acceptance notifications will be sent in early August. Communications regarding proposal submissions will be sent to the main contact only.

PAEA does not grant honoraria to presenters of educational sessions.
