FAQs for LDAV 2012 Presenters

What is a Paper Fast Forward Session?

Each morning, there will be a Paper Fast Forward session, immediately after the Keynote.  You will have one minute to succinctly state the topic of your paper, and make a pitch to have people attend your talk.  Your responsibilities:

  • (Optional) By Monday, October 8th, send one PowerPoint slide, using this template, to be projected during your talk.  If you don't send one, that's OK.  We will project a slide with the first and second pages of your paper.
  • On the day of your paper presentation, assemble at the front of the room at approx. 9:45, just before the end of the day's keynote.
  • Line up in order of presentation for the day (there will be LDAV volunteers there to help)
  • Be prepared to give a one minute sales pitch for your talk.
  • If you can't attend the Fast Forward, plase send a delegate who can do it.
