2020 Submissions

We are currently accepting submissions for Lightning Round presentations and full panels at the 2020 NMPS. Submissions will be accepted until September 13, 2019. If you have any questions, please reach out to NMPS@uchicago.edu.

Lightning Round:

The Lightning Round Session will include up to eight presenters, each of whom will present for approximately ten minutes. In keeping with tradition, this session asks presenters to provide concise insights into a particular case study accompanied by a self-advancing visual presentation. Each presentation should include 20 slides, with the presenter spending up to 20 seconds on each slide. Each presentation will last for a maximum of seven minutes; after all presentations have concluded, the presenters will be asked to respond to group Q&A.

For consideration, please prepare a 150- to 250-word summary of what you propose to present, and address how the Lightning Round format would benefit this topic. Attach your proposal to the completed web form below.

Panel Submissions:

The 2020 NMPS will host 10 to 14 panels, with each panel lasting from approximately 40 to 90 minutes. We accept any and all panel types, from traditional models with moderators and multiple panelists, to experimental or experiential workshops. Successful panels teach participants valuable skills, provide insider insight, and/or address major industry concerns or shifts.

To submit a panel for NMPS 2020,  prepare a 200- to 400-word proposal, including information on why the topic is relevant to the NMPS audience and how you plan to make the topic engaging. Attach your proposal to the completed web form below.

We are happy to offer our panelists and lightning round presenters complimentary conference registration.
