The following strands have been developed for the conference:

You are invited to submit proposals for papers, roundtables, or poster sessions that address these strands. Presentations may be grouped together by content by the conference organizers. The goal is to provide for various opportunities for interaction among attendees and keynote speakers. If you are interested in presenting at the conference, please follow the format below.

Types of Presentations

Papers: Paper presentations should be planned for about 20 minutes in length. Audience participation is encouraged as are multi-media presentations.

Roundtables: Papers of common interest may be grouped together at tables so participants can visit several presenters during the time slot. Presenters will give short summaries of their work and encourage questions and participation.

Poster sessions: Presenters will prepare posters and handouts that describe their research or projects. Attendees may move from display to display and engage in discussion with the presenters.
