ASCJ 2008 - Information
This letter, sent to all organizers of ASCJ panels and roundtables,
contains some basic information that we hope will help with the final
stages of planning.
1) Time and Place of Your Session.
- Please check the posted conference program on this site [PDF] and on the ASCJ website:
- Make sure that members of your panel know the time and room number of your session.
2) Panel Presentations
sure that all presenters in your session have sent copies of their
papers to the discussant so that the discussant is able to prepare
3) Equipment Requests
- All rooms are equipped with projector, video, DVD player, and overhead projector.
- Please check equipment in advance. Technical support: Room 5308, Building No. 5.
multiple members of a panel are planning to make Powerpoint
presentations, we strongly suggest that you save the files for all
presentations on one flash memory stick and use only one laptop
computer for the entire session. Experience has shown that much time is
lost if all presenters individually set up their own laptops.
- A student helper will be in each room.
- Microphones will be available in larger rooms.
4) Managing Your Session
panels and roundtables are scheduled for two hours. Normally each
presenter, including the discussant, should complete their presentation
within 20 minutes, or less if there are more than five members on the
panel. The organizer should make sure that all members of the panel
understand the time constraints. The chairperson is normally in charge
- Make sure to leave ample time (at
least 20 minutes) for questions and general discussion following the
- If possible, keep the posted order
of presentations, since some conference participants may be planning to
attend presentations in different panel sessions.
