About your presentation

Information for the programme
What you write in the fields within this box will be published on the website and in the participant information pack if your proposal is accepted.
Note: Your description and bio are for the conference folders too, so they have a word limit. If you have more to tell us, please use the Additional information field at the bottom, which is unlimited.
Note: You will have one chance to make updates or corrections after you are notified that your proposal has been accepted.

Please fill this in, even if it's the same as your name in the contact information above.
Be as clear and concrete as possible so participants know what to expect.

The information you provide below will be revealed to the board and to the Programme subcommittee, and will help us discuss and evaluate your proposal. It will not appear in the programme.
Choose one of the presentation types below for consideration for a place in the main programme. If you would like to offer any other activity, there will be opportunities to do so later, including at Autscape.
A lecture has the presenter(s) talking with little or no audience input. We keep these to less than 30 minutes in length, but there is usually a separate discussion session for each lecture. You may facilitate this yourself, or we can provide someone to help.
Workshops involve the audience throughout the presentation. They would normally involve interactive exercises, perhaps worksheets, role plays, active feedback throughout the presentation, or other forms of participation. A workshop may have a brief 'lecture-like' introduction.
Hands-on workshops also involve the audience throughout the presentation, but are less dependent on the spoken word than a typical workshop.
Use this button for presentations which do not fit any of the above descriptions.

The ideal length (in minutes) for your presentation. This may be a single number (e.g. 20) or range (e.g. 60-90). We'll try to accommodate this in the schedule, but it's not guaranteed. If it is over 30 minutes, it will definitely be concurrent with another presentation.

A few words describing how your presentation relates to this year’s theme, “Autistic Joy”.

If you believe your presentation will appeal to another group or a more specific sub-group (e.g. teachers, parents), please explain here.
E.g. flip chart, scribe (someone to write for you), tables, seating arrangements… as well as whether you need to bring a carer, etc.
Also indicate here if you are unable to present on any particular day or time.
Anything you want to tell us that doesn't go in the above fields, such as more details and extended descriptions for the decision makers, etc.
