Call For Papers
Bioethics/Healthcare Topic Session
The bioethics topic session welcomes papers on any topic related to bioethics and the convention theme of conversion, broadly considered. In the discussion of bioethics, conversion can have many meanings, and papers should clearly articulate some connection between conversion and any issue in bioethics. This may include a conversion to a new way of approaching a problem, a conversion to new methods of treatment, or a conversion of mind or heart in regard to any bioethical question. Papers that address any such connection are welcome.
Proposals should be limited to about 200 words and must include the following elements: the title of the paper, the author’s name and institution or affiliation, contact information, and any requests for AV connections. It is especially important to include AV requests so that presentation spaces can be reserved. There will not be an opportunity to request AV connections after proposals are accepted.
Submit proposals as attached Word or Open Office documents by email to Mari Rapela Heidt at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 1. Submitters will be notified of acceptance by September 21 and will be required to submit a 100 word précis by October 4. A gentle reminder that presenters are required to be members of the CTSA in good standing with current dues and are also required to register for the convention.
Thank you in advance for your submissions.
