Info for Presenters

How and when will I find out if my proposal has been accepted?

  • Breakout Session proposal submitters will be notified by email by January 11, 2016.
  • Lightning Talk proposal submitters will be notified by email by January 29, 2016.
  • Poster session proposal submitters will be notified by email by February 12, 2016.

I am a presenter; do I have to register?

Yes. Although spots for up to three presenters per group will be automatically saved for the conference, each individual presenter needs to fill in a short online registration form (sent via email to the presentation's primary contact on January 19th). Completion of the online form gives us your preferences regarding the Thursday reception, dietary selections, and any special needs. All presenters are required to pay registration in full by March 28, 2016. Failure to pay the registration fee could result in the cancellation of your presentation and conference registration. All presenters are responsible for paying their own travel and lodging expenses.

When I am at the conference, how do I check-in as a presenter?

You check in at the registration and information table (there is only one). There will be someone from the LOEX committee there to briefly review your session info (e.g., room assignment & layout).

Whom should I contact regarding proposal or presenter questions?

Marian Hampton at sessions2016@loexconference.org

What computer equipment will be available for presenters?
