Workshop Call for Proposals

By completing the following form, you are applying to serve as a moderator, panelist, or presenter during the 2021 Natural Hazards Workshop. You’ll find the information you need to submit your proposal below.

If you are new to the Workshop or need a refresher, please review the Workshop details before you begin. The deadline for submission is March 29, 2021, so please share your ideas soon!

Please also read the entire 2021 theme statement before submitting. We seek contributions that speak to this year’s theme, but, as always, we also welcome submissions that help to advance research and practice.

Submission and Selection Process

After completing the online form, you will receive a confirmation email. Please keep this email for your records.

The Natural Hazards Center team will carefully review all contributions, organize sessions, and assign individual roles based on proposal information and the advice of our advisory committee. If we’ve identified a place for you on the program, we will be in contact. Please know that we do our best to honor your contributions, but given space constraints, we are never able to accommodate all requests and submissions. Unfortunately, due to the volume of ideas we receive, we cannot personally respond to every submission.

Even if we aren’t able to include your proposal, please remember there are other ways to participate. In addition to the keynote address, plenaries, and concurrent sessions, the Workshop also includes poster sessions, roundtable meetings, written highlights, add-on meetings, and much more. Please make sure that you continue to check our website and subscribe to Workshop updates here.
