Presentation Proposals

The deadline to submit a presentation and/or poster presentation proposal for the EDEN Annual Meeting has been extended to Friday, May 23. The annual meeting is taking place this year in Burlington, Vermont from November 4-7. EDEN delegates and Extension professionals are encouraged to submit a proposal that would add to the educational programming at the meeting. Selected presentations will be limited to 30 minutes in length.

Submissions are encouraged in areas such as:

  • Curriculum/Programs
  • Network/Capacity Building
  • Training, both External and Internal
  • Resources / Materials
  • EDEN Programming

Proposals must be submitted in Journal of Extension abstract format: The abstract should describe in 100 words or less:

  1. the presentation topic (in one sentence, if possible);
  2. the purpose, thesis, or organizing concept and the scope of the presentation;
  3. the sources of data used, if appropriate; and
  4. conclusions, recommendations, and implications.

Please include the title, presenter name(s) and contact information.

Once again, the date has been extended and proposals are due via email by May 23, 2008,
Abigail Borron, EDEN Communications Specialist (

Due to the extension, submissions will be reviewed and evaluated by the EDEN annual meeting committee by May 30, and authors will be notified no later than June 6.

Individuals who are selected to present will be encouraged to submit their complete presentation materials to EDEN. These materials may be organized and posted for the EDEN delegation to use as reference material. The individuals who submit the proposal are expected to be the presenter at the meeting.

No travel expenses or stipend will be provided when selected for presentation.

Poster Presentations

If your educational material is better shared as a poster presentation, we invite you to submit a proposal for consideration to be included at the annual meeting. Poster presentations should focus on a disaster education program or educational event that you provided. The emphasis should include the EDEN connection. We will provide a time on the annual meeting agenda for informal sharing of poster displays.

Poster presenters should plan to be present with their poster during the scheduled poster session.

Please indicate whether your proposal is for a presentation, or a poster.
