Note Regarding Invited Proposals

Although invited proposals are not peer reviewed, they must follow the same procedures as defined for peer-reviewed proposals.

Invited session proposals are reviewed by members of the Council on Conferences and Faculty Development (CCFD) based on the following criteria:

  • Relevance of topic, study, or inquiry to CSWE members and the conference theme
  • Clarity of the written proposal
  • Significance for social work education, practice, research, policy, or theory

CSWE makes the final decision on all invited sessions based on the CCFD review and recommendations.

Invited session presenters are subject to the 2018 APM Accepted Presenter Compliance Policy.
