Update on the 2019 Call for Proposals

by David Cutler | 05/16/2018
The Conferences Professional Council has revised both the 2019 Call for Proposals and the adjudication process based on feedback received at the 2018 TESOL International Convention and English Language Expo. These changes required updates to the call for proposals, call for reviewers, and submission abstract system. The 2019 Call for Proposals will reflect the new strand model that was piloted at the last convention.

The anticipated timeline for the 2019 Call for Proposals is as follows:


Call for Proposals/Call for Reviewers available: 25 May 2018

Proposal submission system opens: 1 June 2018

Proposal submission deadline: 2 July 2018
