Looking for topic ideas?

We reviewed feedback from the CIS-EARCOS Institute in 2019 and have a list of topic ideas that attendees were interested in seeing presented. You can find that list of topics on this Google Sheet. If you are interested in putting together a proposal on any of these topics, feel free to list your name, institution, and email address and connect with others also interested in the same topic. You can also add additional topics to the list if you are looking for additional presenters for your session proposals. We hope this tool will help connect you to other professionals who are interested in presenting on similar topics, and provide a place to brainstorm session ideas.
