Please follow the instructions below to submit your proposal for Education Division review and sponsorship no later than July 28, 2020.
All ASQ Education Division sponsored presentation proposals must be reviewed and approved by the division review team prior to the WCQI online submission.

  • All session proposals are subject to the formal ASQ Technical Program Committee review process described at https://www.conferenceabstracts.com/uploads/documents/12542/ReviewProcessandSpeakerExpectations(3).pdf.
  • Division sponsorship does not guarantee acceptance by the WCQI review team.
  • If your proposal is selected for inclusion in the 2021 WCQI program, you will be notified by ASQ headquarters in November 2020.
  • Unfortunately, the ASQ Education Division cannot sponsor presenter’s travel expenses to attend the conference. If selected, the primary speaker will receive one complimentary registration. Co-speakers will be responsible for paying the co-speaker registration fee.
We are looking forward to hearing from you very soon!!
