NAFSA 2023 Submission Policies
Attendance and Conference Registration
All presenters are required to register and attend the NAFSA Annual Conference & Expo. The cost associated with attending the annual conference, including registration, is the responsibility of individual presenters.
If your proposal is accepted, your title and abstract may be edited by the Annual Conference Committee or NAFSA staff for publication purposes.
An individual may be listed in any number of proposals; however, it is NAFSA’s policy that an individual, regardless of role, may present in no more than two conference sessions. The number of presenters listed in a proposal should reflect the needs of the format selected. For 50-minute session presentations, a maximum of four individuals (including the Chair) are permitted. For 25-minute session presentations, a maximum of two individuals (including the Chair) are permitted.
NAFSA Noncommercial Policy
NAFSA education programs at the annual conference are learning experiences and are noncommercial. Under no circumstances should a preconference workshop, general conference session, or poster presentation be used for direct promotion of a presenter's product, service, or other self-interest.
Commitment to Diverse Perspectives
The Annual Conference Committee expects that session proposals demonstrate understanding of the varied conference attendee experiences, backgrounds, and learning needs.
Hybrid or Virtual Event Release
NAFSA recognizes that there may be instances where an in-person event may not be possible. If your session proposal is accepted, you may be asked to present in either a hybrid or virtual format.
