Please add the required conference tag or tags as indicated in Step 9 of the call for proposals. Use the OPTION button to edit your proposal.  Once you've done this, let me know and I'll approve your proposal!





I did the tags


The tags need to appear exactly as stated in the call for proposals or else your session will not appear in the correct strand. For example, 2017Teachers is in the correct format. Note that there are no spaces. 

I'll fix your tags to save time, but please note this for future reference! Thanks.
