Call for proposals

The call for session proposals for the 2022 Ecsite Conference is now closed. The ACPC will be reviewing the sessions at the beginning of December.

The Ecsite Conference sessions are created, designed and led by professionals within the community and are full of creativity, debate and unique experiences, from traditional panel sessions to idea-jams and anything in between.

The 2022 Ecsite Conference will be an opportunity to (re)connect and meet, learn and share experience and expertise in person in Heilbronn, Germany. The call for session ideas opened on Thursday 16 September and closed on 2 November. Submitted session proposals will be evaluated and selected by the Conference Programme Committee, whose members are science engagement experts and representatives of previous and future Conference hosts.

What happens once the call for proposals is closed?

All the submitted sessions are compiled into one document and a copy is sent to each member of the Programme Committee. With over 100 sessions to read and rate, this can take some time! The committee will then meet at the beginning of December to discuss and debate each of the sessions, before they make final decisions. We then inform each of the session convenors of the outcome in mid-December.

Those who have had their session accepted will than have one month to make any edits and put in place any suggestions from the committee, before the abstracts are frozen for editing at the Ecsite Head Office.

Use the Ecsite app to find potential speakers and convenors

Whether this will be your first Ecsite Conference or your 33rd, the Ecsite app is still an incredibly useful tool to create connections and initiate conversations. The meetups function makes it easier to find others in the community who you might want to connect with to speak at your session.
