2009 Conference - AustinConference Overview

The ASEE Annual Conference & Exposition hosts over 400 technical sessions, with peer-reviewed papers spanning all disciplines of engineering education. Attendees include deans, faculty and researchers, students and retirees. Distinguished lectures run throughout the conference, starting with the main plenary. In addition to various award receptions and banquets, ASEE hosts a complimentary “Meet the Board Forum,” providing the opportunity for all registrants to meet with members of the ASEE Board of Directors and discuss current issues in engineering and technology. The spouse/guest tours help make the conference an event for the entire family. Other highlights include the “Greet the Stars” orientation for new ASEE members and first-time conference attendees, the ASEE Picnic, and the “Focus on Exhibits” Happy Hour, Ice Cream Social and Brunch. The 2009 conference will be in Austin, Tex. We look forward to welcoming you there.

All Divisions are now ‘Publish to Present’

In order to strengthen the quality of conference proceedings, the ASEE Board of Directors has voted on a policy of “Publish to Present” at the ASEE annual conference. This policy, which requires all conference papers and presentations be peer-reviewed, seeks to ensure that intellectual activity by faculty and staff receives appropriate professional recognition.

The new process for the submission of ASEE annual conference papers is as follows: Once authors have submitted abstracts of their papers, these will be reviewed and evaluated as acceptable or not. Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to submit a full paper draft to be reviewed by at least three engineering educators. A draft paper may be accepted as submitted, accepted with minor changes or major changes, or rejected. If a paper requiring major changes is re-submitted, the author will be asked to provide an explanation to the Division Program Chair as to how the paper revision has addressed the reviewers’ concerns. The Division Chair may then decide to accept or reject the paper.

Authors of accepted papers may also choose to present through a poster session, rather than the lecture format of the technical sessions. The ASEE poster sessions will now showcase authors of accepted papers who have selected this format, or whose papers have been assigned as a poster due to lack of space in the technical sessions. Exceptions to the “Publish to Present” requirement include invited speakers and panels. Divisions may also designate one of their technical sessions as a “panel” of speakers submitting poster presentations.

The presentation of research and program findings within a conference setting provides a valuable means of exchanging information and ideas. While the majority of papers presented at the ASEE annual conference already undergo review at the abstract, draft, and final paper stage, the Board feels confident that introducing a rigorous process of review will safeguard the quality of all paper presentations and ensure the prestigious reputation of this important conference.
