SESSION INFORMATION

  • CONFERENCE PROGRAM - The FINAL preliminary conference program is posted on the conference webpage. There is a link on the conference webpage. It is more interactive than it has been in the past and provides new ways to explore the conference and sessions. It lists the session participants and links to the sessions that they are participating in. Take some time to explore it. Updates are made periodically, so be sure to check back, especially for your own session.
  • Printed Program PDF – Coming June 19. The printed program has room assignment information.
  • Each concurrent sessions time slot is 110 minutes long. If a session has four speakers, that is 5 minutes to start, 20 minutes per presenter, 5 minutes transitions between speakers, and the rest for questions. All rooms are equipped with computers and projectors. Come prepared with your presentation on a flash drive.
  • SESSION CHAIRS – Sessions that do not have a chair are asked to organize themselves as the session begins and this uses up time, you'll be doing your colleagues and yourself a great service if you volunteer to chair your session as soon you are gathering.

PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP - The Pre-Conference Workshop is June 26, the day before the conference begins, from 1pm - 4:30pm, George Moore Building, rooms M401, M402, M404, M319. The workshop was collaboratively organized with Young Scholars Initiative of the Institute of New Economic Thinking.
