Key points to note prior to making a submission

  • All presenters will have free entry to the conference but will need to cover hotel accommodation and travel.
  • All submissions must be able to show application/research/insight. 
  • Sessions should be inspiring, potentially evidence-based and provide valuable take-aways. They should not be regarded as ‘sales pitches’.

  • Ideally at least one of the presenters for the session must be from an ISE member organisation.

  • All submissions for the 2019 programme must be made via the online submission system using the online links.
  • Should your proposal be accepted for the conference, please expect a possible rehearsal/dry run before the actual conference to ensure accurate timekeeping and relevance of content.
