Call For Proposals

Beyond IQ:
Theory and Practice with the Highly & Profoundly Gifted

Problem Solving – Personal, Local, Global!


April 29 & 30, May 1, Boston University’s George Sherman Student Union, Boston, MA

Proposal Deadline: Proposals are due March 3, 2011!

All proposals should relate directly to the general topic of the conference, which focuses on understanding the characteristics, needs, and paths unique to the highly and profoundly gifted. The theme of
Problem Solving – Personal, Local, Global! is important to the conference, but are not the only subject we are discussing. In your abstract, please specify the relationship of your proposed presentation to the topic and, if appropriate, the theme.

Proposals for the Pre-conference workshops should be directed at Teachers, Administrators, or Counselors. Each
Pre-conferenceworkshop period is 3 hours, though we often run with a less formal structure for those sessions.

Proposals for the Conference can be for adult sessions (introductory, intermediate, or advanced), young adult sessions, or children's workshops for ages 6 - 12. Unlike the pre-conference sessions, all conference sessions are 65 minutes in length. Adult sessions must include a minimum of 20 minutes for discussion and questions. The young adult sessions should be highly interactive and concentrated, and allow for at least 60 minutes of discussion. The children's workshops are to be discovery-based learning.

Accepted presenters will be responsible for expenses related to conference attendance, including costs for travel, accommodations, and printing. The lead presenter will receive a complementary conference registration; additional presenters will receive a 50% reduction of their conference registration fee.

Overhead projectors and screens will be provided on request, and we have an LCD projector available. Other audio-visual equipment may be available and should be requested with the proposal.
