We would like to encourage you to submit ideas for our 2013 Annual Meeting in Indianapolis.  To submit an application for a Symposium or Educational Course (including SAMs) click here. Please respond by October 8, 2012.

Proposals should include the following:

  1. Type of session (see list above)
  2. Title
  3. Name of Lead Speaker or Moderator
  4. Short description (maximum 250 words)
  5. Learning objectives
  6. Proposed faculty

Please note your proposal is meant to serve as a suggested topic of interest, along with a recommended list of faculty.   All proposals will be reviewed by the AAPM Program Directors, who will be responsible for the final selection of topic, content, organizer, and faculty. Proposal selection will also be based on criteria such as other topics for the 2013 meeting and topics presented in previous years. In short, we must include overall programmatic goals when reviewing proposals. Since there are a limited number of slots to fill, we expect that not all proposals will be accepted.
