Innovative panels offer an opportunity for a little creativity and experimentation -- to push beyond the traditional panel format. In these panels, participants’ dialogue, network and learn in a unique format that differs from our traditional panel session.
Innovative panels are sponsored on a competitive basis. In addition to the quality of the panel proposal itself, diversity in section representation and costs associated with the panel are taken into account. Please note that priority will be given to submissions that have not been included on the Annual Convention program within the past three years.
Innovative panels adhere to ISA's "no-show" policy. This means that participants who fail to attend the Innovative panels without properly notifying the Program Office and ISA Headquarters by the withdrawal deadline will be prohibited from submitting a proposal for the following year's ISA Annual Convention.
