Conference Theme: The theme for the 2018 conference is “Competencies and Collaboration.”
Purpose: The purpose of ACC-RAC workshops is to develop the skills of its attendees, especially in the areas of research and education. The workshop component of the conference focuses on the development of the research and educational capacity of the chiropractic profession through skill building and interactive workshops.
Limited Submission: Due to the volume of workshops and limited time in the schedule, no more than one proposal may be submitted per person, and presenters can be listed on no more than one workshop proposal.
Selection Process: The presenters and topics for these sessions are selected carefully and invited by the planning committee. We receive many proposals and, unfortunately, cannot accept all of them. Workshops may not include any sales pitches, selling of materials, or promotion of proprietary materials. The workshop proposal should be free of commercial bias and comply with the ethics of scholarly activities. All presentations are to be done in a noncommercial and non-self-promotional manner.
Workshop proposals will be reviewed and selected based on their strength in the following areas:
Presenters' Responsibility for Travel, Lodging, Registration, and Other Costs: By submitting this workshop proposal, you and your co-presenters are agreeing that each person named in the proposal will be responsible for funding his or her own travel, lodging, and conference registration. Any costs of the supplies or other items are the responsibility of the presenters. All presenters are required to register for the conference by the deadline indicated herein. If accepted, a detailed lesson plan, draft handouts, and draft PowerPoint presentation will be requested for your workshop.
Instructions to Submit a Workshop Proposal: Commitment from all presenters must be made at the time of initial submission. All materials must be submitted at the time of application. To be considered, please submit all of the following items:
Please submit your Workshop Proposal Form and Supporting Materials to the Peer Review Chair at email@example.com by September 1, 2017.
Once all items are submitted, the proposal will be evaluated by a blinded peer review committee, and these results will be sent to the ACC-RAC planning committee for review and final decision. If accepted, all presenters must register to attend the conference by December 15, 2017. Funding should be confirmed in advance of the submission of the workshop proposal. Submission of the proposal is a commitment from the authors of accepted submissions to present at the conference.
