Before the Conference

When will I be notified about the status of my proposal?

You’ll hear from us in June 2019.

If my proposal is accepted, can I review my session details?

Once your session is posted to the conference Program page, review all information, including spelling and accuracy of title and institution. The title and description may have been edited to conform to College Board editorial style guidelines.

Do I make my own travel arrangements?

Yes. You will need to make your own travel arrangements. Please book your hotel before the deadline to ensure the conference rate. Group blocks fill quickly. Visit the Venue page to make your reservation.

Do I need to register for the conference?

Yes. All presenters and copresenters must register and pay for the conference in order to present. The College Board offers a discounted conference registration rate to all educators presenting at its events. You get an early registration discount, in addition to your presenter registration discount, if you register before the regular deadline.

Will I be given a PowerPoint template to use? 

A template with full conference branding will be found in the presenter portal. Use of the template is suggested for uniformity, but not required.

During the Conference

What audiovisual equipment do you provide for a standard session or workshop?

Presenters can get an LCD or digital projector, screen, speakers, and standard VGA or HDMI cables for a PC laptop. You must bring your own laptop.  If you plan to use a Mac computer you must bring your own connector cables. College Board does not support use of Mac computers.  Tell your College Board liaison about other AV needs. Requests for additional AV equipment are considered but aren’t guaranteed approval.

When should I arrive to check on my session room?

Please arrive no later than 15 minutes before your session is scheduled to start. 

How are the rooms set up during the Forum?

Theater style (seating only). No exceptions can be made.

Will someone be available to help me if I need help in my session room? 

Absolutely. Monitors are assigned to each session and our AV team will check with each presenter before their session.  

After the Conference

Can you post my presentation on the event website after the event?

Unfortunately, we can’t post session presentations to our event websites. If presenters want to share presentations with attendees, they should add a slide at the presentation end specifying who attendees should email to request a copy. Remove any proprietary information before distributing presentations.

Will the conference program be available online after the conference?

Yes, it will be on the website until registration opens for the next year’s conference.

How soon after the conference can I submit a proposal for next year?

We typically begin accepting proposals for the next Forum approximately four weeks after the current Forum has ended. Please check our homepage for updates.
