Pac Rim Call for Proposals


The deadline for the Pac Rim Call for Proposals has been extended to June 30, 2017.

Submissions will be considered for poster presentations, 30-minute topical presentations, storytelling sessions, 60-minute breakout presentations, 90-minute seminar/colloquium, and 120-minute interactive workshops. Space is limited so each submission will be evaluated for content and relevance by a review committee.

Each proposal can be submitted under only ONE topic area and must include an abstract synopsis of 50 words or less. The abstract synopsis will be included in the participant program if the proposal is accepted.


Please Note: Presenters are required to register for the conference. Accepted presenters are responsible for their own transportation and registration costs to the Pacific Rim International Conference on Disability and Diversity.

The proposal management system is new for 2017. Please sign up for a new account to submit your abstracts!
