SHORT COURSE SUBMISSIONS
- Short Course proposals should be typed into this template and uploaded to the online proposal portal.
- Short Courses will be held on Sunday 10th October and are 6 hours duration, excluding breaks.
- It is recommended that Short Courses have a broad ranging appeal to those delegates attending in-person and be developed as interactive workshops to maximise learning.
- Suggestions for international speakers to attend virtually are also welcomed as part of any proposals. All efforts will be made to secure approved international speakers, however, no guarantees can be made in this regard.
- Please complete the submission form, including the conflict of interest form, in full. INCOMPLETE SUBMISSIONS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED
- The Meeting or Education Committee reserves the right to contact the course facilitator to discuss content and/or presenters to ensure outcomes meet ASA requirements.
- It is anticipated that all Short Courses may be recorded for educational purposes after the event.
Please note: Short Courses must be deemed to be, at minimum, cost neutral to the ASA to be considered. On average, break even occurs at 30 registrants. Please consider whether your course has the potential to attract 30 or more registrants before submitting.
