Selection Criteria

The SENIA conference committee looks at all of the proposals before making determinations.

Some things they will be looking at are:

  1. The workshop reaches a variety of audiences (beginner/intermediate/advanced in understanding of the topics) and from different levels of education (elementary, middle, high, administrative, etc.)
