ASTE 2021 Call for Proposals

Call for Proposals 
2021 ASTE International Conference 
Salt Lake City, Utah   #ASTE2021
It is time to submit concurrent session proposals for the Association for Science Teacher Education 2021 Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah!  We know these are uncertain times for all of us, but we sincerely hope that we will be able to gather together in Salt Lake City January 13-16, 2021.

The conference proposal system uses a profile-based approach that will result in fewer notification emails going to spam folders, and will also allow for proposal editing until the July 13, 2020 due date.  You will also receive the decision letter and reviewer comments via logging in to your profile.
You must have a current (or recent) ASTE membership OR a non-member account to submit a proposal. If you have a membership, your account is already in place.   Instructions for creating and using a non-member account (basically a username and password) are located on the proposal submission page located at  Once your account is in place, you need to log in to access the proposal system.
Proposals should address issues concerning science teacher education; these can be a research study, philosophical essay, position paper, innovative idea, etc. Formats include traditional paper presentations, themed paper sets, posters, roundtables, syllabus sharing, and exploratory sessions. Although the traditional threads of the ASTE conference will apply, we are also looking for new and innovative proposals that push the boundaries of traditional science education.
In addition to submitting a proposal, please consider taking on the role(s) of reviewer and/or presider for the conference.  You can select one or both of these options during the proposal submission process.
The priority deadline for submitting proposals is MIDNIGHT JULY 13, 2020.  Proposals received after the deadline will only be considered on a space-available basis.  For more information or to submit a proposal, please go to the ASTE website at
Technical questions should be sent to John Rhea, ASTE Director of Electronic Services, at  If you have questions about the conference events, please contact the conference co-chairs at
Stay safe and well.
Your Conference Chairs,
Kathy Trundle and Max Longhurst
