Welcome to the A'23 Call For Proposals submission site!

The Call for Proposals helps AIA source education sessions that are innovative, fresh, and relevant. It’s an opportunity to share the groundbreaking, experimental, and practical ways you’re designing for climate action and creating healthier, equitable, and more sustainable communities, microprojects, parks, homes, installations, and schools, among others. All proposals will be peer reviewed.

What’s behind a winning proposal? Your session proposal should be specific, align with AIA priorities, demonstrate impact, and provide active, engaging, and valuable learning opportunities. AIA is looking for submissions on specific themes and topic areas focused on emerging trends, content that attendees can’t get elsewhere, and sessions that are valuable for various levels of knowledge and career levels.

A strong proposal will demonstrate one or more of the following:
  • Unique approaches to thriving and succeeding as a practitioner
  • How your work positively addresses climate change
  • How your designs impact communities
  • Creativity and solutions around a theme (Careers & practice, Community, Global & local perspectives, Research & development, Climate action)
  • Provides learning that goes beyond the basics and is at a more advanced level, regardless of targeted audience (emerging professionals or senior level)
All sessions will be scheduled for in-person delivery in San Francisco.
