The UPA 2000 conference is scheduled for August 14 through 18 at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville North Carolina. The call for participation is now live at www.UPAssoc.org.  The deadline for submissions is fast approaching-February 4. Please consider submitting a presentation, business case study, workshop, or tutorial. 

The call for participation has also been mailed to members and available on www.UPAssoc.org very soon. 

As you think of your submission, focus on:

1) Involving the audience. 

The presentations which were rated highest by the 1999 conference participants, were those that offered a high level of audience participation.  Think of ways to involve the audience in a truly interactive session.

2) Connecting to the Conference Theme

While it is not a requirement, it is desirable if you can put a twist on your submission that exemplifies the conference theme: Designing The New Millennium Today. 

Consider taking a presentation you gave in the past, and following up on what else you have learned about the topic, and how you think the changing technology might affect your findings. Or, find a colleague and submit a panel where you present your findings, then discuss the future ramifications.

Note: The conference dates have changed, due to a conflict with another conference. All dates related to submissions, program, and registration have also moved.  Check the UPA website for more information.
