Thank you for your interest in presenting at GLPA! Make sure to submit your proposal on or before Monday, September 21.

To submit your proposal, follow one of the links below:

After you have submitted your proposal using the links above, a confirmation will be automatically e-mailed to you. If you don’t receive one, please contact Paper Chair April Whitt. After all submissions have been received and considered, you will receive an e-mail (on or before September 28) stating if your submission has been accepted or declined. When you receive notification of acceptance, please follow the Instructions to Authors to submit a copy of your paper/poster to the proceedings editor.

Since papers will be presented using Zoom, we will ask that presenters participate in a "practice session" to verify that everything works well. These will be be set up with session moderators in the week prior to the conference.

GLPA Conference Planning would suggest you review the excellent IPS guide to Planning your Virtual Presentation. This section, in particular, may be of interest:

Closed Captioning

It’s easier than you think! With a simple setting in PowerPoint or Google Slides, you can turn on real-time closed captioning. The transcription may not be perfect (it may even become amusing), but it will help more people understand your presentation. For quick steps on how to activate this function, check out the PowerPoint closed captioning instructions or Google Slides closed captioning instructions.

Font Choice and Slide Design

We recommend text that is 18 point or larger for your standard PowerPoint, Keynote, or Google Slides presentation. A sans serif font (e.g., Arial, Corbel, Helvetica) is generally more readable than a serifed font (e.g., Cambria, Garamond, Times). Use headers and larger text to indicate more important information, and use changes in color to signify meaning, not just to add dazzle! Also, you may want to avoid complicated slide transitions, since they likely won’t come across well in a streaming platform.
