are five SCCR submission format choices for 2011.
"Paper" session is a grouping of several independent 15-minute
(minimum) oral presentations on a general theme, given in front of an
audience. The conference Program Committee will group accepted papers
together based on similarity of topics.
"Poster" session is a grouping of several individual FACULTY or STUDENT
poster presentations (each tacked onto a 3' X 4' cardboard poster board
supplied by SCCR at the conference). Other attendees will browse
through the posters at a session and may talk with the presenter
one-on-one. No electric power will be available for posters.
"Symposium" will consist of 3-5 (maximum = 5) oral 15-minute presentations (a maximum of an hour and 15 minutes), and an integrative commentary by 1 discussant (maximum),
given in front of an audience on a theme chosen by the symposium's
organizer. Double symposium sessions will be considered.
"Panel Discussion" is the same overall length as a symposium, but the
oral presentations will be shorter, leaving much of the session time
for a wide-ranging discussion within the panel and with the audience.
"Conversation Hour" will consist of 1-2 speakers on one general topic,
who will give brief oral presentations about their shared topic and
engage in an in-depth and informal dialogue with the audience.
