Present a Paper

Each panel session is 90 minutes long, and there are 2-3 papers for each.

Please prepare a 20-minute presentation per paper. This applies as well to papers with multiple authors/presenters. Q&A session will follow at the end of each panel. Presenters are advised to keep to the allocated time and please be informed that time limit will be enforced strictly to ensure that the conference proceeds smoothly.

Each room used for the presentation is equipped with an LCD projector. A student assistant will be available 15 minutes before the start of each panel session to help presenters set up. Presenters are expected to be at the session venue at least 10 minutes before the session begins.

UBC computer facilities use Windows and Microsoft Office. Presenters who are using other software are advised to change their presentation to Microsoft PowerPoint format or bring their own laptops with the necessary connectors to the projector.
