JULY 19th: Paper and Video Presentation
JULY 25th: Final Schedule
AUGUST 5-7: CONFERENCE
AUGUST 30th: Final Paper for the Proceedings
SEPTEMBER 30th: Organizers’ Decision
- The Conference format is synchronous and asynchronous. The presenters pre-recorded their paper/artistic presentations (6 to 20 minutes), which are available on individual blog posts, accordingly. Live discussions with presenters and moderators (who will also serve as respondents) are scheduled for August 5 to 7 on Zoom.
PROGRAM and REGISTRATION
- During the live panel sessions, each presenter will have 5 to 6 minutes to remind their topic or introduce it to those who haven’t seen their video presentation following 15 minutes for discussion.
- We suggest using the 20/20 method, also known as the Japanese technique of PechaKucha (https://www.pechakucha.com/) for the preparation of these presentations.
- Following 6-minute reminder presentations, the moderator will make some remarks and open the floor for comments, questions, and suggestions.
- All the panel sessions will be held on Zoom and they will be recorded for the Conference's archive.
- The proceedings will be published soon after the Conference. Therefore, authors should submit their final revised papers based on their panel discussions by Monday, August 30, 2021. See the Authors Guidelines. Note that the final papers can now range from 2,000 to 4,000 words.
- Papers’ publication will depend on the Organizing Committee review’s approval. The organizers will be looking mostly for the quality of the text (clarity, organization, etc) and if the suggestions/comments from the panel discussions were included in the final paper's version.
- You will find it helpful to download the Zoom Desktop client for the best tools for screen sharing https://zoom.us/download , and if you have not already, sign up for an account. The download is free, and it does require any subscription. We recommend you upload a photo so that your face can be visible to presenters and other participants even when you don't have your video turned on.
