Call For Proposals

Beyond IQ Boston 2019

Theme:
Giftedness and Personality



May 3, 4, & 5, 2019 - Radisson Hotel and Suites, Chelmsford, MA

Proposal Deadline: January 15, 2019


All proposals should relate directly to the general topic of the conference, which focuses on understanding the characteristics, needs, and paths unique to the highly and profoundly gifted. The theme of Giftedness and Personality is important to the conference, but is not the only subject we are discussing. In your abstract, please specify the relationship of your proposed presentation to the topic and, if appropriate, the theme.

Proposals for the Pre-conference workshops should be directed at Teachers, Administrators, and/or Counselors. Each Pre-conference
workshop period is 2.5 hours, although those sessions are often run with a less formal structure.

Proposals for the Conference can be for adult sessions (introductory, intermediate, or advanced), young adult sessions, or children's workshops for ages 5.5 - 12. Unlike the pre-conference sessions, all conference sessions are 65 minutes in length. Adult sessions should include a minimum of 15 minutes for discussion and questions. The young adult sessions should be highly interactive and concentrated, and allow for at least 40 minutes of discussion. The children's workshops use discovery-based learning and run a bit longer.

Accepted presenters will be responsible for expenses related to conference attendance, including costs for travel, accommodations, and printing. The lead presenter will receive a complementary conference registration; additional presenters will receive a 50% reduction of their conference registration fee.

LCD projectors will be provided on request. Other audio-visual equipment may be available and should be requested with the proposal: Overhead projectors, DVD players, microphones, and more - ask for what you need.
