NARST Conference 2023 – Call for Proposals

Message from NARST President, Gillian Roehrig: Join us in Chicago for the NARST 96th Annual International Conference—Reflecting on Reform—April 18 – 21, 2023 at the Chicago Hilton. You can find the Call for Proposal on the NARST website

Please read the call for proposals carefully as we are using a new proposal system this year.

NARST is shifting to a new proposal submission and review system. Please read the instructions in the CALL before you submit a conference proposal. Proposals are due August 15, 2022 by 5 pm your local time.

The NARST 2023 conference is being planned as an in-person event, with an additional day(s) dedicated to virtual presentations. If you would like for your proposal to be considered for a virtual presentation, you will indicate this within the proposal submission form. All the session formats will be considered for virtual sessions. The policies about the number of first author submissions will apply across in-person and virtual sessions as our goal is to increase opportunities for members to present.
Given the significant costs involved, we are not planning to allow presenters to join sessions scheduled in-person in Chicago virtually or to live-stream any in-person sessions.

If you are unable to travel to Chicago, please select the virtual option when submitting your proposal. There will be a short window following notification of acceptance of your proposal when you be allowed to switch from in-person to virtual (providing there is space in the schedule). However, after this deadline, the in-person and virtual sessions will be set, and we will not accommodate any further changes.

If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at or the NARST Executive Director at
For assistance with proposal submissions, you should contact Paul Kemp at

Hope to see you in Chicago,

Gillian Roehrig, PhD
NARST President
