CALL FOR PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

Society for Prevention Research 20th Annual Meeting “Promoting Healthy Living through Prevention Science”
Hyatt Regency Washington, Washington, DC
Preconference Workshops May 29, 2012, in conjunction with the Annual Meeting, May 29 – June 1, 2012

The Program Committee of the Society for Prevention Research (SPR) invites proposals for preconference workshops to be held May 29, 2012, the first day of the SPR Annual Meeting. The workshops are primarily pedagogical, with hands-on instruction and specific learning objectives. Past workshops have provided continuing education in innovative quantitative methods; assembled experts to share theoretical perspectives, research findings and real-world implementation experiences that can inform prevention programs; and presented information helpful in advocacy efforts. These are intended as examples to stimulate creative thinking about workshops. The Program Committee encourages workshop proposals on any topic, as long as the workshop’s objective is to enable the audience to gain skills and knowledge that are important to prevention scientists.

Workshops typically are a full day in length. SPR will provide a suitable room and audiovisual equipment, and will reproduce handouts if they are provided far enough in advance.

SPR will sponsor three or four workshops on a diverse set of topics. Workshop proposals will be evaluated using the following criteria: Clarity of workshop objectives; value of the topic to the field of prevention science; likelihood that the approach to presenting will impart knowledge successfully; relevant background of presenters; lack of redundancy with recently presented workshops and with other workshops to be presented concurrently.

To propose a workshop, please provide the following information:
(1) Title of workshop
(2) Name, affiliation, email, fax and phone number for all presenters, with primary contact listed first
(3) Purpose of the workshop, including specific learning objectives. In other words, what new skills and knowledge will the attendees take away?
(4) Target workshop audience, including background attendees should have
(5) Materials to be provided to attendees
(6) Maximum number of attendees, if any
(7) Audio-visual requirements
(8) CV’s of all presenters, and a brief explanation of how the presenters are qualified to conduct the workshop
(9) Outline of workshop, including (a) roles of presenters if more than one is listed, and (b) which aspects of instruction are hands-on

In addition to proposals received in response to this announcement, the program committee may solicit proposals.

Workshop proposals may be submitted to Jennifer Lewis, jenniferlewis@preventionresearch.org. For questions, please contact Jennifer Lewis at 703-934-4850, ext. 213.

Deadline for Submission: October 26, 2011
