Submit a Proposal

We created PDF file “screen shots” of the proposal submission system for SERA Members to preview without needing to access the real submission system. In previous years, prior to submitting a proposal, a number of people accessed the real system to determine the information required for submitting a proposal.

 Please encourage your colleagues and students to preview the following PDF “screen shots” of the proposal system before they use the real system in order to determine the required information for the (a) First Author, (b) Workshop/Training Verification, (c) Symposium, (d) Number of Presenters, (e) Coauthor Information, and (f) the Proposal itself.

Please note the word limitations on the Title, Abstract, and Proposal. These word limitations must be honored.
