The pictures used in the 4 submission category guidelines on this page reflect visions of buildings that will make up Columbia University's Manhattanville Campus of the Future - A fitting Tribute to our Conference Theme!
The Conference Program Committee has received requests for more specific guidelines for proposal submissions. Therefore, this page describes suggested outlines, with word counts, for the four conference categories: (1) Paper Presentations; (2) Experiential Learning Sessions; (3) Coach Demonstrations; and (4) Panel Discussions.
Each proposal submission should be between 800 and 1,200 words, single-spaced (with one-inch margins, top, bottom, left, and right), using Times New Roman 12 point font. The 800 – 1,200 word count total for proposals is all-inclusive (i.e., from title to select references).
Proposals are intended to be a summary of full conference submissions. Once accepted, additional guidelines for full submissions will be provided. Be sure to make an explicit connection to the "Future of Coaching" Conference Theme.
NOTE: 3 of the 4 proposal categories (i.e., Papers, Experiential Learning and Demos) must be “blind review” ready, meaning that no personal or organizational identifying content should be included (e.g., citing author’s prior work, or naming popular trademarked or copyright frameworks – these should be referenced in general, descriptive terms in proposal submissions, with full identification included in final, accepted submission.
NOTE: panel discussion submissions will be peer reviewed, yet not blind review (i.e., identification information, e.g., name, organization, etc. can be included in the body of the proposal).
As a reference point, the 1,200 word limit (via one inch margins, using Times New Roman, 12 point font, single-spaced) translates into about three pages in total, including selected references; yet it could be slighter longer or shorter, depending on the use of tables and/or figures.
Please use the suggested outlines for each submission category as you finalize your proposals by not later than the extended March 31, 2016 submission deadline.
