How to Submit Your Proposal for the 2022 Annual Meeting of SEPA

Important note – proposals for the CEPO/Psi Chi Undergraduate Research Program should be directed to the CEPO Submission PortalClick HERE to view guidelines and instructions for CEPO proposals.

Before uploading your SEPA proposal(s), please carefully review the How to Submit Your Proposal and Rules for Submission documents and adhere to the submission instructions outlined in them.  Any proposal(s) that does not strictly adhere to these submission guidelines will be at risk of disqualification.

SEPA is transitioning to a new Electronic Submission System as part of our preparations for the 2022 Annual Meeting.  Anyone who wishes to submit a proposal for the SEPA Annual Meeting Program will need to register as a “First Time User” in the new system.

Although SEPA membership is not required in order to be listed as first author on any given proposal, a SEPA member (or advanced graduate student member) MUST be included as part of the submission.  In other words, at least one individual MUST be a SEPA member and be willing to sponsor the proposal to be considered for inclusion in the Annual Meeting Program.

The deadline for uploading SEPA proposals is 6:00 pm (Eastern time) on Tuesday, October 19, 2021.

Please direct any questions about the SEPA submission process to Dr. Tim Hanchon (
