for Presenters and Presiders
Presider Application Descriptions and Links are listed below.
Please use the appropriate form(s) to submit your applications
to Present and/or Preside.
Deadline for submission of proposals is February 1, 2014.
Proposals are now being accepted to present or preside during
the 2014 Conference.
- All proposals
to present a session, workshop, or panel must be submitted online.
- Late or incomplete
proposals will not be considered.
- Complete contact information
is required for all presenters.
- Additional presenters cannot
be added or substituted after submission of this proposal without
the recommendation of the Program Coordinator and approval of
the Conference Coordinator. Only persons whose names appear
in the Conference Program are official AMATYC speakers.
- Two presentation formats are available: 50-minute sessions
and 2-hour workshops.
Presentations may involve single or multiple
presenters and must not promote or sell a commercially available
product or service. Please avoid using the proper name of a
commercial product in your session or workshop title.
Sessions may include active attendee participation, lecture,
or panel discussion. The two-hour format is reserved for workshops
and must include active attendee participation, an in-depth
treatment of a topic, and substantial takeaway materials and resources. When requesting a workshop, include a detailed plan of how the additional time will be used to benefit attendees. Although a computer lab will not be available, computer workshop proposals will be considered if the workshop can be presented without focusing on a commercial product. (Note: Microsoft Excel is standardly available on most computers, so is exempt from this exclusion.) For computer workshops, attendees will be asked to bring a personal laptop.
Presentations should focus on examples, model projects, or
topics that are illustrative of implementing the Beyond
Crossroads standards. The five Implementation Standards are described below the proposal form links.
|Proposal Review Criteria
||Proposals are reviewed and rated by the Program Committee with
attention to the appropriateness for mathematics educators in
the first two years of college and overall topic balance of
the program. Consideration is given to the Implementation Standards cited above. Proposals from faculty and other professionals
currently engaged in two-year college education are especially
||Please be as flexible as possible regarding the days you are
willing to present.
- Please limit your equipment request to only

Each proposal will be acknowledged by an email receipt. If
you do not receive an email receipt within a few days after
submission, please contact the AMATYC Office immediately. Letters of invitation to present at the conference are issued
When proposals have more than one presenter, the first person
listed becomes the official AMATYC contact who will receive
