“Tips to Prepare a Successful Symposium Submission

For the 2019 EM Higher Education Symposium”


February 19, 2019                  3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. ET


The 21st Anniversary of the Annual Emergency Management Higher Education Symposium will be hosted June 3-6, 2019. The call for submission is open now through March 15, 2019. This year we are looking forward to highlighting the best our community has to offer in the following tracks:


  • Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) in Emergency Management
  • Research Methodology & Integration
  • Policy & Administration of EM and Related Programs


The submission form has been revised to better understand your work. The hope is that this change will assist in preparing you to develop a post-symposium document for publication to support the development, dialogue and dissemination of information and material resulting from the symposium.


The webinar is designed to guide submitters to successfully navigate the form, learn more about the tracks, and develop a submission that will be clear and attractive to the reviewers. An overview of the cover letter, step-by-step guidance to complete the form, discussion the presentation options, and exemplars of submissions will be shared. There will also be time to engage in dialogue to provide your feedback, as well as to ask specific questions about your potential proposal.
