Call for Sessions Process
Our Call for Sessions process is starting a little later this year in order to give the track chairs time to develop 4-5 sessions on their own before selecting the session submissions they feel best complete their track, rather than starting with the submitted sessions. Otherwise, our process remains much the same. Please reference the timeline below.Stage 1: Call for Sessions submission window - December 15, 2019 - February 15, 2020Please submit your session ideas during this period. Late or incomplete sessions will not be considered. All submissions must be submitted through the website; submissions received through email will not be considered.Stage 2: Committee Review - Concludes February 25The EDGE Conference Committee will review and evaluate the submitted sessions and elevate the approved sessions to the Sessions Library for the track chairs to make their selections.Stage 3: Session Selection - February 25 - March 15The track chairs will select the remaining 1-2 sessions for each of their tracks. All submitters will be notified of their submission status the week of March 15*.Stage 4: All Tracks/Sessions Considered Final - May 1By May 1st, all tracks and sessions are considered 'final'. 'Final' means that the track chair has confirmed all necessary speakers, as well as the session titles and descriptions*. At this point, session promotion will begin.*On occasion, a track chair may need to select a replacement session, so sessions not initially selected will be kept on record in the Sessions Library. The Sessions Library will also be offered to the Roundtables, who may contact the submitters for a local event.
