Call for Proposals

The 2021 Proposals have been evaluated and presentation results have been released. If you need additional information regarding your proposal, please reach out to LRA Headquarters. 

Important Changes in All Academic Proposal Submissions

In order to make sure that each proposal is correctly uploaded into the system, we have created a few short video tutorials to aid in making sure that proposals are uploaded properly into the system. By going through the video tutorials, this will ensure that your proposals are uploaded properly and that all of your session participants will be visible within the online program. Please select the corresponding link, for the session type that fits your proposal.

As a reminder, we are asking submitters to not create an account for their session participants. This feature has been disabled to help control participant scheduling conflicts. Each participant will need to create their own account. This way, we can make sure duplicate accounts are not created within the system. If your session participants have not created an account, please direct them here, so that they can create an account.
