Presentations are fluid experiences within the context of this experimental medium. Please be patient and be prepared :>) The report from the first conference is available at : http:// ETC. We are incorporating many lessons learned from that first program, and expect to learn many more from this years activities.

Specific presentation times will be communicated by the track coordinators and/or moderators. Please plan on attending your entire session, so that you can be available to jump in to fill a slot in the event of a network failure or other problem. Time allotted for each speaker will be determined by the track coordinator and enforced by the panel moderator. In general, 2/3 of the allotted time should be allocated to the presentation and the final 1/3 of the allotment should be reserved for Q/A session. Check with the moderator in advance of your session.
