Giving a presentation, facilitating a workshop, and presenting a poster at the conference is an important opportunity for the presenter(s) and facilitator(s). Just as important, though, is the learning experience of the conference attendees. Therefore, proposals are evaluated on 2 dimensions: alignment with the conference theme and the attendees’ learning experience.
