Submit Your Proposal

The TLA Annual Conference features over 400 sessions and events, and more than 1,500 presenters. The proposal process is highly competitive, and every year the  Conference Programming Committee reviews hundreds of submissions. The majority of conference programs originate from groups within the association.

Program submissions for TLA 2020 are closed.  We will begin accepting program submissions for TLA 2021 in May.

TLA will begin accepting program proposals in May to be considered for the next year’s conference. If you would like to be notified when the 2021 submission form opens, please email Ted Wanner, Director of Education.

TLA notifies individuals only if their programs are accepted by a TLA unit or the Conference program committee. If you have a question about your program status, please contact the chair of the Program Proposals Subcommittee.

In addition to general sessions and individual programs, there are many other opportunities to present at the TLA Annual Conference, including the Innovation Lab; Collaboration Space; Great Ideas Lightning Talks & Posters; and Contributed Papers.
