Call for Papers

The Biological and Agricultural Engineering Division (BAE) of ASEE invites papers for the 2017 Annual Conference and Exposition in Columbus, OH (June 25-18, 2017). Engineers in academia and industry from across the world are encouraged to submit papers on relevant topics focusing on biological and agricultural engineering education.

Authors are encouraged to submit papers on any relevant topic in biological and agricultural engineering education for inclusion in the BAE portion of the conference.  The topics listed below are intended to serve as a guide for authors.

  • Assessment practices in Biological and Agricultural Engineering for Continuous Improvement. Submissions share the good assessment practices from various bio and agricultural engineering programs.
  • Innovations in Biological and Agricultural Engineering Curriculum.  This session will focus on changes to the curriculum to reflect the changes in the demand for biological and agricultural engineering career. Specific focus will be given to curriculum development that promotes study abroad opportunities to students in the program.

Papers can be targeted at one of two tracks: 1) report the results of research or systematically collected outcomes assessment (i.e. data will be expected by reviewers) or 2) present “works in progress.” Submissions should indicate clearly in the abstract which of these two tracks are appropriate by including “Works in Progress” in the title of the abstract. “Works in progress” should have innovative aspects that have not been previously published by others. Accepted “works in progress” will be assigned to a poster session and require an extended abstract (3 page limit) instead of a full paper. In both cases, an abstract and full paper or extended abstract must be submitted and accepted, and the publication fee must be paid. Acceptance of abstracts and papers will be judged based on the level of innovation, technical merit, demonstrated outcomes, and relevance to biomedical engineering, science, and technology education.

All abstracts and papers must be submitted electronically via ASEE’s electronic system. You will be able to access submission and deadlines information via the conference website.

Questions regarding the abstract and paper submission can be directed to the Biological and Agricultural Engineering Division Program Chair:
