This is your opportunity to share your knowledge and expertise with your peers; to help them to be the best in the field. You are therefore cordially invited to submit a proposal to be considered. Proposals will be accepted for: Presentations and Case Studies.
Speakers will present to our membership in a lecture style format with time allotted for questions from the audience. Presentations are typically 40 minutes in length, but longer presentations will be considered. Please note: Our membership base is of many disciplines and all Delegate attendees at the In-Service Training will be permitted to attend all training sessions.
The IABTI seeks to educate our members; therefore presentations may not be commercial in nature or promote any specific product. An abstract of your topic and major points must be submitted for review to the International Business Office no later than 31 December and will only be used for tentative selection. Final selection and acceptance is based upon completed presentations submitted on time.
Technicians and Investigators are encouraged to submit and present a case study on a recently adjudicated case or to highlight a recent case that will bring new insights to the attendees and expand their investigative techniques.
