Info for Presenters

Dear JCDL Authors:

With the conference less than a week away, I wanted to drop you a quick note just to review the setup for the presentations. The procedures will be the same as with previous JCDL conferences, so if you have presented at JCDL before this may be familiar ground.

Long papers receive a presentation slot of 30 minutes and short papers a slot of 15 minutes. In order to leave time for questions, long paper presenters should plan on talking for 20 minutes and allowing 10 minutes for questions. Short paper presenters should talk for 10 minutes and allow 5 minutes for questions.

Please arrive at the presentation room 15 minutes before the start of the session in order to introduce yourself to the session chair and to handle any needed logistics.

A laptop with the latest version of Microsoft PowerPoint will be available in each presentation room. It will make the changeovers go faster if all presenters will load their slides onto the laptop. Student volunteers will be available before the session starts to help out with this. The wireless network will be available in the presentation rooms, but if you plan to use it in your presentation, it is always wisest to make sure to have a backup plan in case the network (or your server) fails.

The paper presentation schedule, identification as long or short paper, and session chairs can be found on this web site. This information will be kept up-to-date, reflecting any necessary changes to the conference schedule.

Thanks and I'll see you all next week in Austin.
