Building on last year’s success with “The Year of the Poster,” we’re excited to offer the option of an e-poster presentation. This new format allows you to include graphics and videos for more dynamic, visually interesting presentations.
Content proposals can be for a Quick Tips, Presentation, E-Poster or Hands-On Workshop. We are looking for all types – from introductory to advanced skill levels and a wide variety of industries.
I’ve been receiving questions like, “What makes a great proposal?” and “How do I get my proposal accepted?” So I started thinking about my own experience presenting at SAS Global Forum and came up with a few tips that I like to call the POWER approach.
Present what you know. No matter what industry you’re in, or whether you are a beginner or advanced SAS user, you have knowledge and skills to share.
Organize your ideas and be creative. Write an abstract (maximum of 250 words) and a working draft or outline of your paper. Keep your presentation titles short but descriptive.
Who cares? Keep your audience in mind when you develop your content proposal – skill level, industry and job role.
Explore how you want to present your content. Consider what type of format is best for your idea – Quick Tips, Hands-On Workshop, Poster or Breakout Session.
Reach out for help through our Power to Present mentoring program. We have presenter mentors ready to help you make your idea a reality.
The call for content is almost over. I hope you will consider submitting a proposal. Remember – your idea has the potential to benefit the entire SAS users community.
