Special Topics Conferences

Special Topic Conferences are smaller, more focused conferences sponsored by CORD.  These conferences often have a more narrow topic and generally have a smaller number of attendees.  Since Special Topic Conferences do not replace the annual conference, CORD has devised special guidelines for hosting such conferences.  Recently, we have hosted special topics conferences in the United States as well as abroad. 

If you're interested in hosting a Special Topics Conference at your institution, please review the proposal guidelines at this link, and then submit your proposal to
