General Guidelines


Registration: Conference registration on Friday November 3th will take place in the foyer of The Wave, in the University Community Center (UCC), from 6:00 to 8:00pm, during the informal Mixer - this is the location for registration Friday night only. Registration the morning of Saturday November 4th will be outside of the McKellar Room, UCC. You will be able to pick up your conference packages at these times.

Oral Presentations:  Oral presentations are scheduled for 20 minutes each. This includes a few minutes for questions and/or discussion and to prepare the next presentation for projection. Timelines will be strictly enforced.
