Before the Conference

  1. Use the online conference program to review the schedule and lineup for your session.
  2. Upload your paper to the online conference program by March 31, 2022.
  3. As a courtesy, please email a copy of your paper to the chair and discussant(s) for your session. You can locate the email addresses for your fellow panelists by logging in to the online conference platform, navigating to your session, and clicking on the name of an individual chair or discussant. You must be logged in to view email addresses.
  4. For in-person presenters, prepare your presentation on a USB flash drive formatted for a Windows-based PC.

The Day of the Session

  1. If you are presenting in-person, arrive at the conference room 10 minutes before the session begins, and bring your USB flash drive. If you are presenting virtually, log in to the online conference platform early and navigate to your session. Be ready to enter the virtual Zoom meeting room when it opens.
  2. Be prepared to speak for no more than the allotted time as determined by the chair of the panel.
  3. Be courteous: set your phone to silent and turn off computer notifications.
  4. For in-person presenters: when it is your turn to present, use the computer and projector provided in the conference room, and use the Share Screen feature in Zoom so that virtual audience members can see your presentation.
  5. For virtual presenters: when it is your turn to present, have your presentation opened and ready on your computer. Use the Share Screen feature in Zoom so that in-person audience members can see your presentation.

General Presentation Tips

  1. Prepare your presentation with the time limit in mind. You will not be able to present your entire paper; summarize and focus on the main points.
  2. Prior to the conference, practice your presentation with a timer.
  3. If you are using a PowerPoint presentation, the slides should be used to complement your talk, not to replace it. Avoid placing lengthy blocks of text in your slides, and do not read from the slides during your talk. In general, PowerPoint presentations should be limited to brief summaries of the main points, and to findings that benefit from visual display.
