Choose the one that best describes your role.
Have you previously presented at a BIT/ECOO conference?
Presentation Type
Please choose the type of session you would like to offer. Please note that Wednesday sessions are intended as workshop sessions, giving attendees hands-on experiences. The 50 minute sessions can be either presentation style, discussion, or short workshops. The innovation stations are poster/trade shop type presentations at a table in the Exhibit Hall. For more information on Minds on Media, please see this site:
If you selected a Wednesday workshop, approximately what percentage of the time will attendees spend doing "hands-on" activities?

Your answer

Description of Your Session
This is the most important part of your submission as this is the information that the conference committee will use to evaluate your proposal for inclusion in the conference. It is your "sales pitch" to convince us to choose your session and so it needs to be detailed enough that we get a clear understanding of the topic. Last year we passed over a few proposals because they did not provide enough information. This is also the information that attendees will see when they are deciding which sessions to attend. So please be as precise as you can so that you attract the best audience. Lastly, attendees want to leave a session with new knowledge, understanding or skill; so please be sure to let us know what attendees will "take away" from your session.

Please list the specific learning goals for your session. (This may seem redundant if you have provided this information above, but it will help the committee members as we sort through all the proposals.)
Your answer
What is your Target Audience
Please choose all that apply.
Innovation Station Alternative (If you submitted a proposal for an Innovation Station, please ignore this question.)
Your session will be evaluated for the type of the session that you have chosen. If you submitted for a 50 minute session and it is not approved, we might contact you to do an Innovation Station instead. Would you be interested in that?
