Opportunities for Participation

Attendees are encouraged to submit Symposia proposals (for organized sessions) and/or Key Finding abstracts (for oral presentations). Proposals for presentations and symposia should focus on the overall Conference Themes. Please adhere to the guidelines when preparing your submission.

I. Key Findings Presentations are intended to provide a synopsis of important findings from your work and should focus on key findings and conclusions. Managerial case studies are welcome. Key Findings Presentations will be limited to a 15-minute presentation per person with additional time for questions from the audience. Time limits will be strictly enforced. We strongly recommend no more than 20 PowerPoint slides per presentation. Presenters are encouraged to bring more in-depth papers to pass out at the conference as a follow-up to their presentation. Abstracts from the Key Findings Presentations will be published on the conference CD. All oral presentations are limited to Microsoft PowerPoint only; no other formats will be accepted.

II. Symposia offer the opportunities for attendees to organize a series of presentations related to any of the conference themes. Oral symposia will be comprised of 4-6 paper presentations with a suggested time limit of 15 minutes per speaker. Roundtable, panel discussions and other formats are also welcome. Speakers are scheduled according to the organizer’s preferences. Symposia are scheduled to run concurrently with other conference sessions.
