Information for invited speakers

Invited speakers may upload one audio and/or video presentation up to 40 minutes in length, and/or one .pdf document (e.g., handout, slides, etc.). They will be asked to provide a draft of their slides / handout by June 1st in order to facilitate the discussant’s presentation, though this may be updated before the materials are made generally available to conference attendees

They will be given a pre-arranged time slot during the regular conference “program” (between July 6th and July 8th) in which they are asked to participate in a live 20-minute Q&A session about their presentation. This session will be linked from their materials and open to any registered conference attendee. It will be moderated / facilitated by the conference organizers. Attendees will be able to submit questions ahead of time through the discussion board or live through the “chat” function, and the facilitator will present questions to the presenters, who will answer questions orally.

In addition, invited speakers may be asked to participate in some other pre-planned event by the discussant (see details in the discussant section).
