Important Information for Speakers

The deadline for submissions is June 1. Late proposals will be considered on a space-available basis. All (on-time) submitters will be notified whether their proposal has been accepted by the end of June. Speakers will be notified of their scheduled session as early as possible, but no later than September 1.

All speakers are required to provide an abridged abstract (80-100 words) for publication on the website and in the program book that will be distributed at the conference. Speakers should also notify the organizers about A/V needs as early as possible, and no later than September 1. We hope to be able to provide all equipment at no cost, but depending upon demand it may be necessary to charge for use of digital projectors and/or VCR/monitors. The earlier we are informed of requests, the better the chance that we can keep the costs down. Abridged abstracts and A/V requests should be sent via e-mail to Jay Labinger,

In keeping with SLS tradition, speakers are strongly encouraged to avoid reading papers (copies may be brought for distribution to interested attendees), and to limit the length of presentations to allow for plenty of discussion in each session.
