(Not applicable to Workshops or SIGs)

This signed certification must accompany your submission.


No Multiple Submissions*
To ensure maximum participation and a fair process for reviewing proposals, the Executive Committee of CCCC has adopted a policy of no multiple sub-
missions. This policy reflects the Executive Committee’s commitment to include as many presenters as possible in the convention program.
Under this policy, a person may be proposed for one—and only one—speaking role in a Concurrent Session. The proposer of a session is responsible for
certifying that speakers listed on the proposal are not being proposed for any other speaking role. Chairing a session, participating in Workshops, or attend-
ing SIG or Caucus business meetings does not count as a speaking role.
8. H I certify that each speaker listed on the proposal is not being proposed for any other speaking role.

*NOTE: If Multiple Submissions Certification is not completed, proposals will be returned to the submitter.

0!24$&ULL 4IME'RADUATE3TUDENT3TATUS#ERTIlCATION
To ensure eligibility for the CCCC Chairs’ Memorial Scholarship as well as the benefits of a lower registration fee for the convention, full-time graduate
students are asked to certify their status.
