NatCon22 Call for Presentations

Proposals are being accepted for workshop presentations, poster presentations, TED-style talks/Ignite presentations and iPoster presentations. You will be asked to specify your desired session format during the submittal process.

Workshop Presentations: Workshops focus on emerging trends, creative concepts and new solutions that benefit the field and shape the future. They last one hour, including Q&A, are interactive and have a scope beyond individual programs. Presentations may have one presenter, multiple presenters or be formulated as a panel; however, no more than three panelists and one moderator are permitted.

TED-style Talks/Ignite Presentations: TED-style talks are short, powerful talks on riveting topics lasting just 18 minutes or less. Ignite presentations are exactly five minutes with 20 auto-advancing, highly visual slides, allowing presenters to share their passions in moving and memorable ways. Think beyond your work and the field for stories that will excite and inspire audiences. Did you grow your most successful vegetable garden this year? Tell us about it! Did you learn something new about yourself while renovating your home? Maybe your children taught you a valuable lesson while they were learning virtually. We’re looking for outside the box ideas!

iPoster Presentations: iPosters presentations are interactive electronic poster displays of innovative practices and award‐winning programs that include the latest in research and data. These electronic posters can be viewed on screens throughout the duration of the conference. Up to two authors are scheduled at a pre-selected time to present their information and answer questions about their posters.

To get a better idea of the caliber of presentations and the topic areas of greatest interest to our attendees, please review the NatCon21 online conference program.

Be part of the National Council for Mental Wellbeing's next chapter by submitting your proposal by 11:59 p.m. PT (2:59 a.m. ET) on Friday, October 8.
