Session Formats

Submission Deadline - Extended to November 19, 2007

CSUDH Faculty and students on an archaeological excavation in South America

Panel Discussion Sessions
Themed Panel Discussion Sessions will be scheduled for 75-minutes with 3 panelists that present on related material as determined by the planning committee. Each panelist will prepare a one-page abstract of his or her work for distribution. Following a brief overview of these handouts (15 minutes per panelist), a discussant will lead the panelist and attendees in a discussion of the work. If necessary each presenter may add up-to two co-presenters as time constraints prohibit larger presentation groups. It is anticipated that audiences will range in size between 30 and 40 participants. (audio visual package provided, see guidelines for submission)

Round Table Discussions
The round table is a great opportunity to discuss with a small group one's work. Several 30-minute concurrent roundtable gatherings are scheduled. Individual presenters will prepare a one-page abstract of his/her work for distribution to up-to seven attendees who will engage in a discussion. (no audio visual provided)

Poster Sessions
A 60-minute poster session will provide the opportunity to include a visual display of the key points of your research accompanied by your verbal explanation and a one-page handout elaborating the poster content. The session is open to all conference attendees and promotes small group interaction about your work. A 3' X 4' poster that accurately represents the primary findings of the study in a clear and concise manner and is well organized and visually appealing, is required for this conference format. (6' x 3' table provided. Electrical connections are also available upon request, see guidelines for submission)
