SUBMISSIONS ACCEPTED UNTIL AUGUST 10, 2015
We encourage Conference panel and workshop proposals that address topics pertinent to the range of fields, institutions, career stages, and overall breath of the curatorial profession and museum community.

The Conference Committee and the AAMC Executive Director oversee the selection process with the final decisions made and approved by the AAMC Executive Committee. The Conference Committee's selection process will be guided by the strength of the proposals and the need to create a balance between topics relevant to curators from a wide range of institutions and specializations. Conference proposals are subject to modification by AAMC, the Executive Committee, and/or the Conference Committee as part of the process of shaping the overall Conference program.
All session proposals are submitted online only and must include:
- 750-word session proposal
- Suggestions for three to four panelists/presenters. A short bio and/or a statement as to why the panelists/presenters are suggested is encouraged, but is not required. Proposals without the full name, title, and organization of at least 3-4 panelists will not be considered. Panelists/presenters do not have to be AAMC members or curators, but should be well respected and relevant to the panel topic. AAMC strongly encourages panelists that represent diversity of field, institution type and size, race, gender identity, and ethnicity.
- Your CV and, if applicable, the CV of your co-moderator; no more than two pages in length each.
