Presenter Information


As we move closer to the start of ISSOTL19, the conference organizers want to provide more information about the logistics of presenting your session to assist with your preparations. 
 

ISSOTL Conference Pedagogy

Please refer to the ISSOTL Conference Pedagogy guide for more information about the ISSOTL approach to sharing knowledge.

Poster Session: Thursday, Oct. 10th, 5:30 – 7:00pm

  • We will supply push pins and poster boards (36” tall x 48” wide; 91.44cm x 121.92cm). Each poster can be no larger than these dimensions.
  • Font should be readable from 3-5 feet (1-1.5 m) away.
  • Handouts with additional or more detailed information are welcome.
  • The number provided as the location in the Guidebook program corresponds to the number on the poster board where you will hang your poster.
  • Posters can be hung as early as 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 10th.

Paper Presentations:
1 hour or 1.5 hour sessions, 2-3 papers per room

  • Papers have been grouped by common themes, with 2 paper presentations scheduled for each room during 60-minute sessions and 3 papers scheduled for each room during 90 minute sessions.

  • Each paper has 30 minutes for presentation. Please reserve 10 minutes of your time for questions and discussion.

  • The final presenter during your session is designated as time keeper for your session. The time keeper will ensure each session does not take more than the allotted 30 minutes.

  • In order to ensure that each presenter has the full amount of time to present, please arrive 10 minutes before the start of the concurrent session (not your individual presentation) to avoid being disruptive to other presenters and to set up your presentation in the room.

  • There will be a Dell PC laptop with internet access and projector in your presentation room. Please bring your presentation on a USB flash drive or have it saved online to allow you to access it on that laptop.

Workshop Presentations: 1.5 hour sessions

  • There will be no additional facilitator for your session. Please make sure your workshop begins and ends on time.
  • Your session should offer an opportunity for interaction and hands-on work on a question, topic, or method, allowing for multiple perspectives to enter the conversation.
  • There will be a Dell PC laptop with internet access and projector in your presentation room. Please bring your presentation on a USB flash drive or have it saved online to allow you to access it on that laptop.

Panel Presentations: 1-hour sessions

  • There will be no additional facilitator or moderator for your session. It will be the responsibility of the panel to guide discussion and ensure the session begins and ends on time.
  • Because panels need to reserve at least 20 minutes for discussion among panelists and audience members, our suggested format for panels is for each speaker to introduce themselves and their topic in a 5-10 minute segment as time allows and then ensure adequate time remains for discussion.
  • There will be a Dell PC laptop with internet access and projector in your presentation room. Please bring your presentation on a USB flash drive or have it saved online to allow you to access it on that laptop.

What else do I need to know?

American conference venues can be quite chilly. Consider packing a sweater or light jacket!

We look forward to seeing you in Atlanta!
