The Evaluation Process
Members of the Conference Committee will evaluate all proposed presentations based on the following criteria:  overall quality, relevance to the field of design exploration, practical application of HEEDS software, timeliness of the topic, and speaker qualifications.

To be considered as a speaker, your presentation must be educational in nature — that is, sales presentations will not be accepted. In addition, your material should be original; otherwise, sources must be referenced. For multiple speakers, each speaker must agree to this submission. Incomplete presentation submissions will not be considered.

Final presentation selections and notifications will be made at the end of May. You will be notified only if your presentation is selected. If selected, you will need to provide the final presentation to the Conference Committee by June 2, 2017.

Presentation Guidelines
Your presentation should address an application of HEEDS software. Presentations should be approximately 20 minutes in length, plus 5 minutes for questions and answers. Programs should not consist of more than two speakers.
