Call for Proposals Open: 2025 ASTE International Conference

2025 ASTE International Conference 

Science Education Elevated

Long Beach, California

January 15-18, 2025 

The ASTE Annual Meeting takes place in January of each year, and provides an opportunity for our membership to engage with current research, policy, and practice and to promote improvements in science teacher education.

We are excited to announce the Call for Proposals for the 2025 ASTE Annual Conference: Fearless Science Education.

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 10, 2024 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 https://theaste.org/meeting/proposal-submission/.  Once your account is in place, you need to log in to access the proposal system. 

Proposals should address issues concerning science teacher education. Information about formats, threads, proposal requirements, and rubrics for proposals can be found at: https://theaste.org/meeting/callforproposals/ 

In addition to submitting a proposal, please consider taking on the role(s) of reviewer and/or presider for the conference.  You can fill out the volunteer application here to serve in one of these roles: https://theaste.org/aste-volunteer-portal/ 

The priority deadline for submitting proposals is MIDNIGHT, PACIFIC DAYLIGHT TIME, JULY 10, 2024.  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 https://theaste.org/meeting/proposal-submission/

Technical questions should be sent to Maria Wallace, ASTE Director of Electronic Services, at DES@theaste.org.  If you have questions about the conference events, please contact the conference chairs at conferencechairs@theaste.org. If you have questions about the proposal process, please contact the Conference Program Coordinator, Kelly Feille, at programchair@theaste.org

We look forward to receiving your proposals, and to seeing all of you in Long Beach!
