As you develop and submit your presentation proposal, please keep the following tips in mind:

  • Individuals may submit proposals for and participate in a maximum of two presentations total.
  • The presentation title and abstract should be descriptive and creative and offer an overview of the overall purpose – Content submitted should be original and not previously presented.
  • Proposal should reflect a specific area of expertise, yet offer a broad and global appeal.
  • Complete information should be included as incomplete proposals may be removed from the system.

In addition, please note the following:

Proposals must not be sales or marketing oriented, but rather neutral and educational in nature.
ASIS membership and/or participating as conference exhibitor is not required to submit a proposal.
Proposals should not reference speaker name(s) or company(ies) in the title, abstract, or learning objectives, and commercially biased content should not be submitted.
Accepted speakers will need to be committed, responsive and adhere to written deadlines.
All accepted speakers are entitled to register at the reduced speaker rate. Speakers are responsible for their own travel-related expenses.
