2015 Call for Proposals Open

The 2015 Call for Proposals is open until March 6. We recommend that you download and print the call for proposals, read this document thoroughly, and collect all of the information in the requirements checklist. When you have all of the required information, submit your proposal.

This year's theme is "Ethics and Creative Expression." ASBH represents the intersection of bioethics and humanities. It is a crossroads where we celebrate multiple disciplines and practices and professions. It is a place characterized by creative expression of every dimension of the human experience, including both suffering and healing. This meeting offers an opportunity to explore this space in the spirit of collegiality and inclusion, and we welcome proposals on the theme of "ethics and creative expression" and others in every submission category.

Call for Reviewers

Every year, the Program Committee aims to include new reviewers, including emerging scholars and those who are new to ASBH, to ensure that the review process is inclusive of the diverse membership.

Reviewers are expected to rate 5-15 proposals and provide comments on each between March 13-March 23. If you would like to be considered to review proposals, please complete the volunteer form by Monday, February 23, 2015. You must be an ASBH member to serve as a reviewer.
