We invite proposals for workshops for the 2020 NAEOP Conference to be either theory or practical application based. Workshops are sessions intended to convey specific knowledge or skills. These sessions are not appropriate for the presentation of formal research talks and do not include presentation abstracts. Workshops are more interactive and informal than formal paper sessions, and they can involve extended discussion as well as hands-on training. Workshops may involve one or several leaders/presenters.
A strong workshop proposal will make clear what knowledge, skills, tools, or insights participants might expect to gain from the session and will have a plan to engage participants virtually.
