ASEE DIVERSITY COMMITTEE CALL FOR PAPERS
The ASEE Diversity Committee (ADC) invites papers for oral presentation at the 2018 Annual Conference and Exposition in Salt Lake City, Utah. We invite paper submissions on any topic relevant to diversity, equity, and inclusion in engineering and related sectors across industry, government, and academia.
The ADC is especially interested in papers addressing diversity topics that are not the focus of other ASEE divisions (see the full call for papers for other divisions' topics). We also invite papers that take institutional, non-discipline specific, or theoretical perspectives. Possible topics, across all levels of education and practice of the engineering profession, include:
• Diversifying the term ‘diversity’ – embracing visible and invisible difference to create a more inclusive culture
• Discussion or development of theory related to inclusive culture
• Diversity, equity and inclusion as keys to innovation and competitive advantage
• Diversity, equity and inclusion as keys to a well-prepared engineering workforce
• Institutional considerations or approaches for creating an inclusive culture
• Supporting students from traditionally underserved or uncounted groups including, but not limited to LGBTQ, low income / first generation, and persons with disabilities
• Faculty development, especially in a non-discipline specific way
• Intersectional approaches to understanding or taking action on inclusion
• Creating an inclusive classroom
The ADC will also accept requests for special sessions offered as part of the technical program such as panels, interactive discussion, or workshop sessions. If you have interest in submitting a session of this type, contact the Program Chair for a special application that must be submitted directly to the Program Sub-committee. We recommend submitting an abstract and paper to support the historical record for any proposed special session.
All ADC technical sessions are Publish and Review to Present. By submitting an abstract for a paper or other session request, authors agree to review at least one other abstract and paper.
Paper abstracts should be less than 500 words and submitted via the Monolith system prior to the ASEE deadline. Acceptance of an abstract will result in an invitation to submit a full paper. Papers will be peer reviewed and judged on the degree of innovation, intellectual merit, described outcomes or impact, and relevance to diversity, equity and inclusion. Papers submitted to the ADC through this call will be eligible for nomination for Best Diversity Paper.
ASEE uses double-blind review for abstracts and papers. Until final papers are uploaded all references to the author(s) and their institution should be redacted in some way. Citations that would identify the author(s) should state "details withheld for review" in the bibliography. Other formatting and technical guidelines are found in the Author's Kit at the 2018 ASEE Conference website. ALL Authors must review the Kit guidelines prior to submission to be certain to meet all requirements.
Note: This call for papers is separate from the request to ASEE division program chairs for nominations for Best Diversity Paper. Those nominated papers should be processed and presented within their original division, in addition to being forwarded to the ADC for consideration in the Best Diversity Paper competition.

Abstract must follow the ASEE Abstract Format guidelines submission (https://www.asee.org/conferences-and-events/conferences/annual-conference/2019/papers-management/for-authors/). The abstract should provide enough information to allow reviewers to determine its suitability for presentation in the EDGD Division.
The first sentence of your abstract is to clearly identify the type of paper that you are proposing. For example, “This work in progress describes the study of….” or “This research paper presents the study of…..”
1. Work-in-Progress (WIP): Studies that are at an early to intermediate stage for which authors are seeking feedback from the community. WIP abstracts should address the motivation and background of the work, methods, results (or anticipated results), and significance.
2. Research: New findings, situated in the context of prior findings and models, including motivation and background of the work, methods, results, and implications of the work and/or future directions for research.
3. Evidence-Based Practice: Analysis of one or more engineering education practices in a graphics context, including teaching approaches, uses of instructional technologies, institutional strategies to support student success, etc.), including design rationale, assessment methods, evidence of effectiveness and/or achievement of desired outcomes.
The criteria for abstracts listed above serve as the review criteria within each category. Literature citations should not be included in the abstract. Authors’ names or institutional names should not be included in the abstract, filename, or document properties. It is the author’s responsibility to ensure that the requirements for blind review are met.
Authors of accepted abstracts will be required to submit a full paper manuscript that are to follow ASEE Paper Format guidelines (https://www.asee.org/conferences-and-events/conferences/annual-conference/2019/papers-management/for-authors/). Papers will be evaluated using criteria within each type as listed above, and the general criteria in the list below. Papers that fail to meet all of the criteria may still be considered acceptable based on potential to further the EDGD objectives.
General evaluation criteria for all paper types:
• The manuscript is complete. Authors should not expect to make substantial changes in a manuscript following its acceptance.
• The study is likely to interest a broad group of engineering design graphics education researchers and/or practitioners.

Engineering Ethics Division Call for Papers
The Engineering Ethics Division invites abstracts for papers for the 2019 ASEE Annual Conference to be held in Tampa, FL this coming June 16-19.
Diverse topics related to research and education in engineering ethics are welcomed. We also encourage the submission of papers that address diversity, equity and inclusion in engineering ethics research, practice and pedagogy.
There are four type of submissions: Papers, Posters, Workshops/Special Sessions, and Distinguished Speakers/Panel Sessions.
We will be reviewing and accepting four types of papers this year:
a) Work in Progress (WIP) Paper: adequate for research studies at an intermediate stage for which authors are seeking to present early findings and receive feedback from the community.
b) Research Paper: Complete or near complete research studies that are situated within a body of previous scholarship and utilized accepted research methodology. Results, conclusions, and future research will be included in research papers.
c) Theory Paper: A review paper or theory-focused paper; must include a review of relevant prior work in engineering ethics research or education, and will present important insights or theory and/or future evaluation.
d) Evidence-Based Practice Paper: Instruction-focused paper about an educational project and its implications for engineering educators; must include presentation of pedagogical and/or ethical frameworks and relationship to prior work in ethics education. Relevant literature citations, methodology, and assessment results must be presented.
Posters are best for early stage projects or conceptual proposals that would benefit from more direct discussion and feedback from the ASEE audience, and can include work-in-progress research presentations and educational interventions that have not yet developed into research.
The Engineering Ethics Division also seeks proposals for ethics-related workshops or special sessions for the 2019 annual conference. Workshops are interactive presentations on an ethics-related topic of interest to engineering/engineering technology and teaching professionals. Workshops are normally presented on the Sunday immediately preceding the conference. Workshop presenters are required to cover the cost of the workshop and are therefore encouraged to supplement workshop fees with appropriate extramural grants and subsidies. (Please note that even after accepting a proposal, the program chair may cancel any workshop that becomes likely to incur a financial loss to the division). Special sessions can be either a group of four or five related papers on a topic of significance or a panel of several distinguished experts. Please contact the division’s Program Chair to discuss pre-conference workshops and/or special session proposals.
Distinguished Speakers/Panel Sessions
Distinguished Speaker/Panel sessions are also very welcome each year for the Ethics Division. These sessions have a separate timeline for proposals and acceptance. Please see the ASEE website for details. Please contact the Program Chair of the Division if you are seeking Ethics Division Sponsorship (sole or joint) before submitting your proposal to ASEE.
Abstracts for submissions should be approximately 300-500 words in length and include the following information: (1) the type of paper, (2) a clear statement of objective, (3) the relevance of the work to ethics, (4) analysis and/or assessment methods, (5) results or findings, and (6) next steps.
The ASEE annual conference has a publish-to-present policy. Only authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to prepare a full paper for peer review, publication in the conference proceedings, and presentation. To be accepted, abstracts (and follow-on papers, if invited) must demonstrate an appropriate level of scholarship.
All published papers are eligible for the division’s best paper award and best diversity paper award. The awards will be presented at the division’s business meeting, which will be held during the ASEE Annual Conference. The best paper from the division will then be considered for best paper award within the ASEE Professional Interest Council IV.

The division is dedicated to helping engineers develop professional skills in areas such as communication, teamwork, ethical and professional responsibility, and lifelong learning and to situating engineering within the larger social, historical, political, and cultural contexts that shape and are shaped by technological development. We welcome engineers as well as non-engineers and encourage researchers in STS (Science, Technology and Society/Science and Technology Studies) to contribute to the division.
LEES welcomes proposals related to any of the diverse areas that fall within the broad scope of our division as delineated above. We are particularly interested in facilitating conversations across divisions of ASEE in areas such as the following:
• “Professional Skills,” both ways of assessing them and differences in the ways they are understood and developed in different contexts
• Diversity and inclusion, in all forms (age, ethnicity, sexual identity, disability, disciplinary, socioeconomic, etc.), as practices and as subjects of research and critical understanding
• The human dimension of engineering, including social psychology, user studies, listening and negotiation, peer review, engineering cultures, and student motivation
• Mindfulness, empathy, care and reflection as components of engineering innovation, education and practice
• Social justice, social responsibility, and sustainability
• The role of technology in promoting and undermining democratic ideals and social cohesion
• Lifeview/Workview integration and careers in engineering
• Putting engineering education reform efforts, including accreditation and assessment processes, in social and historical perspective
• Global origins and impacts of engineering practice, education, labor and policy
All paper submissions are publish-to-present. Papers submitted to technical sessions are peer reviewed through the LEES Division process, and those accepted will appear in ASEE Proceedings. Paper submissions may include research reports, classroom applications, or other frameworks. We encourage review papers that synthesize and identify trends in research of interest to the division. Papers published through LEES in the conference proceedings are typically 10-15 pages Iong and include a substantial literature review. We also welcome proposals for partial or complete sessions, particularly those that involve authors from multiple institutions. If you are proposing a paper as part of a partial or complete session, please inform the Program Chair by email (contact information below) and provide the names of all authors intended to make up this partial or complete session. All paper abstracts, including those proposed as parts of such planned sessions, are considered for acceptance on an individual basis.
The first step in proposing a paper is to submit an abstract to the ASEE paper management system between Tuesday, Sept. 4 and Monday, October 15, 2018. Abstracts for papers should be 500-600 words long. We recommend that abstracts include at least a few references/sources that connect the material proposed to previous relevant work, including previous papers presented at ASEE conferences.
The complete program from the 2018 conference is available on the LEES website (http://aerospace.asee.org/lees/annual-conference). For each 2018 technical session we have also provided a brief summary and a list of possible topics for future papers and collaborations. We welcome submissions that address topics and questions other than those included on this website, but we hope the material posted there will be helpful both for those who are new to LEES and those seeking broader collaborations within LEES.
If you have further questions or would like to submit a panel, a partial or complete session, or a proposal for a non-traditional session (including workshops or discussion-centered sessions) for the 2019 ASEE Annual Conference, please contact the LEES Program Chair, Amy Slaton, Drexel University, email@example.com.
