Call for Presenters

Do you have an innovative practice, cutting-edge research, or expertise that you want to share with patients and families affected by primary immunodeficiency (PI)? The Call for Presentations for the 2023 PI Conference is now open. You are invited to submit a presentation proposal that focuses on topics related to diagnosis, treatment, or lifestyle management. In honor of your time and talent, all selected presenters will receive a modest honorarium for their time and contribution. 

The 2023 PI Conference, being held on June 22 & 23, 2023 will be held virtually (we’re excited to announce that we’ll be back in person in June 2024 – stay tuned for more details!). 

This year’s theme is Navigating the Primary Immunodeficiency Journey.  Sessions will be offered within one of three tracks:

  • Skimming the Surface – this is information geared to those who are recently diagnosed and want to learn about broad topics that affect the PI community.
  • Deep Dive – this information is geared to those who are interested in more in-depth medical or scientific topics.
  • Rare of the Rare – These sessions are targeted to the rarest of rare diagnoses and for those who are not necessarily antibody deficient.   

TYPES OF PRESENTATIONS: 

  • Expert Presentation (30-minute PPT presentation + 15 minutes for Q&A)
  • Panel Discussion (up to four participants on a dedicated topic.  35 minutes for scripted questions + 10 minutes for audience questions)
  • Workshop (Fully interactive and guided virtual activity)
  • Case Study (35-minute PPT + 10 minutes for audience questions) 

Tips for your proposal: 

  • Be clear: the topic you submit is the topic you’ll present.
  • Be specific: identify your target audience and the roles that will specifically benefit from this session. Make sure your presentation stays on topic.
  • Be original: take the time to create well-written titles, abstracts, and outlines, tailored to your audience and their expertise level.
  • Be educational: be sure your proposal doesn't sound like a sales pitch but rather like an exciting opportunity for attendees to learn something new.
