Sustainability & Accessibility: The Shepard Symposium is committed to environmental sustainability, and continues to strive for Zero Waste. A Zero Waste Event is one in which as much "trash" as possible is diverted from landfills and incinerators. Please help us in this endeavor by considering the environment in your presentation plans. Accessibility remains an integral part of our justice programming, so presenters will be asked to design presentations with maximum accessibility in mind. In this spirit, presenters will be asked to provide content early, and guidelines for universal design will be provided. More information about these initiatives can be found on our website: shepardsymposium.org Important notes about the Symposium:~ Submissions will be accepted through February 16, 2018.~ You will be notified on the status of your proposal by February 27, 2018.~ All submissions are evaluated by a blind, peer-review process.~ We do not offer honorariums or stipends for travel.~ Registration for the Symposium and lunch on Thursday, Friday and Saturday are free.~ Confirmation and any requests for changes in the schedule will need to be reported by March 4, 2018.
