Delegates may only make one presentation, although they may also convene one plenary session or panel; or be discussant in one plenary session or panel.
While convenors must become members of SLAS for 2013, all other delegates are encouraged but not obliged to become members of SLAS; non-members will pay a higher registration fee.
Editing your abstract
Paper authors can use the login link in the toolbar above to edit their proposals. Co-authors cannot be added/removed nor can papers be withdrawn through this environment - please email slas2013(at)nomadit.co.uk to do this.
Pre-circulation of papers
SLAS has no rule about this; however many convenors are keen to pre-circulate completed papers. To facilitate this and save on email traffic, if requested by convenors, authors can upload PDFs of their papers within the online system, which will then show as a downloadable file beneath their abstract on the public panel page on this site.
Timing of presentations
Convenors are free to allocate the time of their sessions as they like. The SLAS norm is to allot each presenter a maximum of 30 minutes (for presentation and questions/discussion), however convenors should let you know about this nearer the conference.
The order of presentation should be as the papers are listed on the panel page and in the printed programme.
We are unable to represent specific intra-panel timings in our programme. Delegates reading the conference book will have to work on the assumption that papers will be evenly distributed through the panel.
Communication between authors/convenors
Convenor/author email addresses are not shown on the panel pages for anti-spam reasons. However there is an in-built secure email messaging system. If you cannot work that, please email slas2013(at)nomadit.co.uk to obtain relevant email addresses.
Any queries with the above please email slas2013(at)nomadit.co.uk
