The National Institute of Building Sciences is issuing a call for abstracts for its Building Innovation 2019: The National Institute of Building Sciences Conference and Expo, the seventh annual iteration of the event.

“The Institute’s Conference Planning Team is reaching out to Institute council and committee members and inviting industry professionals to present during the four-day conference,” the organization said. “Industry leaders with valuable insights, case studies, best practices, lessons learned and/or remaining challenges are encouraged to share their knowledge and experiences with the broad audience of building industry stakeholders.”

Speakers should plan for their presentations to run 20-30 minutes with an additional 10-15 minutes for a question-and-answer period. Sessions will be organized into either two-person, 90-minute sessions or three-person, 90-minute panels, depending on the topic and time available. Speakers may submit an abstract for an individual presentation or multi-person panel. Panels should represent varied perspectives or industry viewpoints.

Interested parties should submit a 200-word abstract, a 150-word biography, learning objectives and five keywords describing their presentation. Abstracts are due June 29.

If selected, speakers should be prepared to submit their final presentations and high-resolution headshot by Oct. 29. They will receive a complimentary registration to attend the day of their speaking event or a 50 percent discount on full registration.
