ICUDDR 2020 Conference!

Call for Proposals & Save the Date

We will be holding our annual conference at the Sukosol Hotel in Bangkok Thailand, July 13-15, 2020.


** Please note: Like many of you, we are concerned about COVID-19 and are following the epidemic closely. The safety of all of our members and participants is incredibly important. We will be delaying online registration for our conference until May 1 as we watch what happens. We will also extend the time for submitting applications for presentations and travel support until April 1. Please submit your presentation proposals, because if travel to Bangkok looks problematic for July, we will hold a virtual conference instead with all presentations held online and recorded so that people in all time zones can participate.

Also, to support your efforts as university faculty, we have posted the following resources that may be helpful to you as you manage your work in this environment:

We appreciate your patience. We will continue planning for our live conference in Bangkok with the expectation that the epidemic will have run its course by July. We will have more information in April and will make a decision at that point in time and open registration for either a live conference or a virtual conference.

If you have questions, please contact Cary Hopkins Eyles at eylesc@icuddr.org.


We are accepting abstracts for 1.5 hour panel presentations and 3 hour courses. We have some partial scholarships available for airfare and hotel. There are two categories for which you can submit a proposal. Please keep in mind our mission and goals when submitting your proposal.

Panel proposal: three or four linked 15-20 minute plenary presentations on work force development; excellence in higher education; combining research, education and practice; university community engagement; or other topics related to the ICUDDR mission. You may submit a full panel with three or more presenters, or a single presentation 15 – 20 minutes in length, that if accepted, will be joined with presentations on a similar topic.
