For 50-minute sessions:
The deadline for proposal submission is March 4, 2013.
Proposals will be peer-reviewed and notification of acceptance or decline will be made via email by April 8, 2013.
Presentations for the 50 minute sessions may include one or more presenters. Allow at least 5 minutes in your session for questions from the attendees.
Session handouts, with a URL to your presentation listed, are strongly encouraged. Past attendees have asked that presentations and handouts be made available online. Include your contact information in case someone wants more information after the symposium.
Please bring your presentation on a jump drive for speedy and dependable access. When constructing PowerPoint slides, visit Tips and Tools for Successful Presentations and consider these comments from past attendees:
- Present history/background of the topic
- Avoid extensive institution demographics
- Cover practical, applicable content
- Avoid jargon
- Limit amount of text on each slide (avoid using sentences or large groups of text)
- Practice the presentation
Presenters are also invited to write a paper for the Proceedings, if desired. Papers should be 2,000-4,000 words in length.
