Present at OLC Accelerate 2024

Thank you for your interest in sharing your innovative ideas with your global network of colleagues, your community, and those who inspire and seek inspiration.

Please note, all proposals for Accelerate 2024 are for onsite sessions in Orlando.  There will be no virtual program associated with the conference this fall.  

All individuals (presenters, co-presenters, and authors) submitted on a conference proposal must have a current and updated OLC account (account must include first name, last name, title, organization, and bio. (OLC uses “Additional Authors” to indicate non-presenting contributors.) When submitting the proposal, you will select your co-presenters by using their OLC user account email addresses. The system will only allow you to select individuals with an OLC account who is updated with the required fields (first name, last name, title, organization, and bio).  If you or your colleagues do not have an account, create one today by visiting OLC user account - a community membership is free. We recommend current account holders log in to verify their information before submitting a proposal.

To make the submission process quick and easy, be sure to collect all the necessary proposal information in advance using the template provided (Proposal Planning Template) so that you can easily cut and paste information into your submission form. The template will also guide you through the information you will need to obtain from your collaborators (including email addresses) prior to submitting your proposal.

For more detailed information (series of documents, track descriptions, sessions types & descriptions, FAQ, etc) visit our OLC info page.

You will be able to make revisions to your proposal up until the submission deadline.
