Globally, nurses have much knowledge to share and the increased calls for conference presentation abstracts reflect this. However, a recent literature review revealed no guidelines for presentation submission and review processes for international nursing conferences. During the past decade, one conference, the U.S.-Russian Conference Cruise, has used evaluation data from each conference to shape its submission and review processes in a way that promotes transnational dialogue during the conference. The purpose of this article is to describe the challenges and evolution of designing submission and review processes that support the goal of a scholarly program of intercultural exchange.
