Please Note

Presenters vs Authors
It is our policy to list only presenters on conference materials rather than authors. If you wish to give credit to co-authors for their work, you may include a line in the abstract that says the work was done in collaboration with them.


Presenters Must Register
As this is a self-funded event and presenters make up such a large percentage of the group, we do require all presenters to register and pay the registration fee. Any presenter/co-presenter not registered will not be listed on conference materials.


Attending the Conference
Lilly Conferences are committed to creating events that build community among its participants. In order to accomplish this, presenters are encouraged to participate in the whole conference, sharing with and learning from one another.


If at any point after your proposal is submitted you realize you will no longer be able to present, please do let us know so that we can make appropriate programming decisions.  If you need to cancel AFTER the program is assembled, again, please let us know as soon as possible so that we may offer the spot to proposals on the waitlist; as your session has already been reviewed, you will be able to defer it to a future Lilly event.

Peer Review

All proposals undergo blind review by faculty from institutions across the United States and abroad. All names and references to the presenter's institutions are removed; blinded proposals are then sent to volunteer reviewers with an evaluation rubric. Reviewers make the recommendation that proposals should either be accepted as submitted,  accepted with revisions, accepted but presented in a different format than the author requested, or denied. We greatly value the contribution that the blind review process makes in conference presentation selections and the subsequent program development.


Thank you to our proposal reviewers that take time out of their very busy schedules to help us make programming decisions.


Posted Materials

It is our practice to publish a conference program with the session title,  Key Statement, Keywords, abstract, and learning outcomes. We do not publish a conference proceedings. It is our intent that presenters will be recognized for their scholarly contribution through the archived posting of their peer-reviewed abstract and presenting material at an interdisciplinary conference. Additionally, limiting the publication to abstracts only allows the author(s) to then submit the complete work for publication in an appropriate journal or online format.
