U.S. Play Coalition Calls for Presentations

Given the many setbacks, challenges, and tragedies experienced throughout the southeast over the last few weeks from Hurricanes Florence and Michael, our planning committee has decided to extend the call for conference presentation proposals.

Proposals for Educational Sessions, Poster Presentations and the Play Research Symposium at the 10thA Anniversary Conference on the Value of Play: PLAY FOR LIFE will be accepted through October 31.

The U.S. Play Coalition is asking for presenter proposals for the 10th annual Conference on the Value of Play: Play for Life. The conference will take place March 31-April 3, 2019 at Clemson University in Clemson, S.C.

Play for Life will address topics such as accessible equipment, inclusive design and more. The conference is calling for 3 kinds of presentations to be given by researchers and industry professionals: research symposium sessions, educational sessions and poster presentations.

Research symposium sessions are grouped by topic and should only be 15 minutes long. A 15-minute Q&A session will follow each topic series. Educational sessions should be interactive and targeted at practitioners. These presentations are 50 minutes long including a Q&A session. Poster presentations will be displayed during the conference; presenters must stand by the poster during the closing reception on Tuesday, April 2 to explain the information.

The deadline for presentation submissions is October 15, 2018. Submitters will be notified of acceptance or rejection by December 15. All relevant sessions will be submitted for LACES and AIA CEU approval.
