Annual Conference Submissions
ITAA Annual Conference programs rely on the active participation of ITAA Members. Members are invited to submit proposals for special topic sessions and workshops, abstracts for research and teaching scholarship, and entries for creative design scholarship. Submission deadlines vary.
At the 2013 ITAA conference, the Philosophical Missions committee piloted a new, interdisciplinary approach to member-led conference sessions organized around a particular topic, which we are calling “seminars”. Organizers may customize the submission format, review process, and dissemination of results in a manner appropriate to the focus and objectives of the session.
Special Topic Sessions
Special Topic Sessions held during the annual meeting may include presentations, panels, small group discussions, or any other program which may be of interest to members. Special Topic Sessions occur within the regular meeting schedule and should address broad issues and encourage dialogue and audience participation.
Workshops held at the beginning and close of the annual conference; may include presentations, panels, group discussions, invited speakers, or any other program which may be of interest to members.
ITAA scholars are invited to submit proposals to present original concept papers, research papers, and papers on the creative teaching, curriculum strategies and best practices at ITAA annual conferences. Research must be completed at time of submission, and submissions may not have been published or reported at a national or regional conference prior to the ITAA annual conference.
ITAA design scholars are invited to submit proposals to present original design work at the ITAA annual conference during the Live and Mounted Design Exhibitions. Work must have been executed within the last 3 years and not previously shown at an ITAA Annual Conference. Work must be constructed by the designer(s), and must be completed at time of submission.
