Proposals to Conferences

Writing proposals for presenting at conferences is similar to writing abstracts. Brevity is important but conferences seldom require the proposal to be as short as abstracts for journals. Each conference will have its proposal requirements and deadlines posted on its website. These must be followed carefully. Usually the conference prefers a one-page proposal that can appear in their program. If you are accepted, the conference may then notify you the date for submitting an expanded paper for publication in their proceedings. Submission of a paper for the proceedings is voluntary. The proceedings are usually published so that this gives you a publication. However, give careful consideration before having your work published this way because a science journal will not consider publishing work that has been published elsewhere.
