Submit a Proposal for the 2012 Pacific Rim Special Education Research Consortium (PR-SERC) Conference
(DEADLINE: January 20, 2012)
PR-SERC Conference will take place on February 9-10, 2012, in Santa Barbara, California, USA
The conference program chair, Dr. Mian Wang, cordially invites all interested participants to submit presentation proposals for the PR-SERC conference. Submissions will be considered for poster presentations and 30-minute topical paper presentations. Because the program space is limited, so the proposal review committee will evaluate each submitted proposal in terms of its content, relevance, and quality.
The conference has three thematic strands: (1) Inclusive education: From research to practice; (2) Early identification and intervention; and (3) Family support and family wellbeing. In relation to these thematic strands, the conference also focuses on the following topic areas:
- Autism Spectrum Disorder: Diagnosis and interventions
- Career Development/Transition
- Developmental Disabilities
- Early Intervention
- Emotional and Behavioral Disorders
- Family and Professional Partnerships
- Instructional Design and Strategies
- Learning Disabilities
- Response to Intervention (RTI)
- Special Education Assessment Issues
- Special Education and Disability Policy
Each proposal should be submitted under only ONE topic area and must include an abstract synopsis of 250 words or less. The abstract synopsis will be included in the conference program if the proposal is accepted. For the presenters who intend to submit the complete presentation paper to be included in the PR-SERC conference proceedings, they need to send us the complete paper by February 28, 2012.
All presenters are required to register for the conference by January 25, 2012. Failure to register by then will result in cancellation of your session. Individual participant requests for particular times cannot be granted. So submission of a proposal assumes that you will present at the time you are scheduled for.
All proposals should be submitted via email to the Pacific Rim Center for Research on Special Education and Disability at the University of California, Santa Barbara (email@example.com).
