Submission Instructions and Relevant Deadlines
If you wish to present a work-in-progress (WIP) or an incubator idea, please indicate your preference on the registration form by the last call for registration on April 30, 2014. Also please make sure that you complete the abstract section on the registration form by April 30, 2014 if you wish to present a WIP. Selected WIP presenters must provide a draft of their papers by June 2, 2014. If a participant misses any either of the above deadlines, you will be placed on a wait list and accommodated if space becomes available. Any WIP presenter taken off of the waitlist following the June 2nd submission deadline will have until June 9th to submit a draft of her paper. If WIP spaces remain available following the June 9th deadline, individuals on the waitlist will be invited to present. However, these presenters will not be assigned a commentator.
Interested in Serving as a Commentator?
Please indicate on the registration form if you are interested in serving as a commentator during a WIP session. Commentators will be allotted 5 minutes to provide oral comments on the draft paper and afterwards, will act as a facilitator and take comments and questions from the audience. As a facilitator, commentators are also expected to provide time management and to control the discussion during the Q&A to allow the presenter to benefit from a full range of voices. In addition, commentators are required to provide the presenters with written feedback on their draft papers.
