Confirmation of Participation
All accepted abstract authors will be required to
complete and return the "speaker agreement form" to confirm their
participation as a session speaker. Forms will be sent via the acceptance
email and must be returned no later than Friday July 21, 2017. If
participation has not been confirmed by this date the speaking slot will be
offered to an alternate speaker.
Conference speakers are eligible for a 50% discount from the standard conference rates.
Once speakers have provided confirmation of participation in the conference a
special promotional code will be issued which is required in order to complete
your conference registration. Speakers will not be reimbursed for travel
Conference Audio-Visual Equipment
All session rooms will be equipped with one screen,
an LCD projector, a remote control for advancing slides, a podium with
microphone, head table with table microphones and confidence monitor.
Most presenters choose to prepare PowerPoint
presentations, although other media may also be used. As a general
guideline, presentations should not have more than 15 slides.
Please ensure that presentations are no longer than 15-20 minutes in
length depending on the number of speakers in the session. Note that in the
interest of time presenters will be cut off by the Session Chair if a
presentation exceeds this time limit.
We ask that all presenters upload their presentations
through the CanWEA advance submission site in late September.
Session Conference Calls
All session speakers will be required to attend a
conference call with their Session Chair and fellow speakers. These calls
will be scheduled to occur in September, and will allow speakers
to develop and modify their presentations with input from fellow speakers and the session moderator in
order to ensure a well rounded session.
