Paper Presentations

A paper presentation will address a topic related to the inclusion of a contemplative practice within or related to higher education. Authors are encouraged to consider inclusion of practices that engage the audience.

Panel Sessions

A panel session consisting of 3 or more panelists will address a topic related to the inclusion of a contemplative practice within or related to higher education.

Interactive Sessions

An interactive session is designed to engage the audience directly in a contemplative practice used in higher education with which the author(s) has experience.

ICAT Art, Installations, and Technology Demos

As part of the conference, ICAT's IMPACT Studio invites proposals for art, installations, and technology demonstrations with focus on contemplative practice. While proposed art and installations should also leverage technology, within the context of this submission we define technology in the broadest terms possible. All submissions will be reviewed by an interdisciplinary panel consisting of ICAT faculty and will be assessed on their feasibility within the context of available conference infrastructure and resources. Selected projects will be showcased as part of the reception and a concert at the Moss Arts Center. Where appropriate, some submissions may be also presented in a paper and/or poster format as part of the "Technology" track. Authors of selected submissions will be expected to attend the conference. To apply, please see the ICAT Submissions Form below.

We also have a limited number of Exhibitor Tables.
