Guidelines for Proposals

A panel proposal should address a test-related hot topic that is of substantial interest to the majority of ETS attendees, because it is controversial or increasing in importance. The proposal should include a panel title, introduction, the name of the organizer, a proposed moderator, and proposed panelists, along with contact information for all. Proposals must be complete. If necessary, the panel chairs can provide feedback before the submission deadline to incomplete proposals.

By means of submission, panel organizers, moderators and panelists agree to register for and participate in ETS’19, in case the submission is accepted.
