We summarized everything that is important for people who are presenting at JURE 2011:
Paper sessions are 90 minutes, in which 3 papers are presented and discussed. Presentation time is 15 minutes maximum for each paper. The chair will monitor the time and signal when 5 minutes, 2 minutes and 0 minutes are left. After each presentation, there are 10 minutes for questions for clarification from the audience. The session concludes with a 15 minutes discussion with the audience. The discussant will start the discussion by pointing out commonalities/differences in the 3 papers, and possibly raising final points for discussion with the presenters and the audience. More details can be found in the Discussant Guidelines.
- Each of the rooms where paper presentations take place is equipped with a computer and projector.
- These computers run Microsoft Office 2007, so please ensure you save your powerpoint in the correct format. If you want to give a powerpoint presentation, make sure to bring your presentation not only on USB-stick.
- If you are bringing a Mac Laptop to use, you will need to bring your own VGA Cable Adapter to be able to connect.
- If possible, bring 20 copies of your paper for the audience. Alternatively, you can bring hand-outs of one A4 page containing the title, abstract, and your contact information, so that people can e-mail you after the conference when they want to read the full paper. There is no printing service offered by the JURE conference organizers.
- If you would like your powerpoint presentation to be pre-loaded onto the computer in the room you will present, please email it to:
email@example.com before August 22nd. Please ensure your presentation is saved with the file name in the following format: Surname_Session (e.g. Hetherington_A2), and that you send your presentation once only. If you need to make any changes after you have sent your presentation to us, you will need to bring the updated presentation on a USB stick on the day. For your own peace of mind, we also recommend you bring a backup copy of your presentation on a memory stick.
Poster sessions are 60 minutes. Poster sessions involve visually presented research studies. Each poster is introduced with a brief oral presentation (max. 3 minutes). After the introductions there is time to individually walk around the posters. Posters – We are using two different sets of poster boards during the event, some of which are 2m x 1m and some are 1.793m x 1.190m. Please ensure your poster is small enough to fit on these boards.
Roundtable discussions are 60 minutes. The room will neither be equipped with an overhead projector nor with a notebook. If it is neccessary for you to use a notebook, please bring your own fully charged. Each round table session will consist of 2 conceptually linked projects. Each presenter has 5 minutes to introduce his/her project and raise one or two open questions. Twenty-five minutes are intended for discussion. Presenters should prepare handouts for the other participants but not a slide presentation. You can bring the discussion paper or hand-outs with contact/background information (see under paper presentations).
Access to the Internet
At registration, you will receive a username and password to access the University of Exeter wifi service during the conference, should you wish to do so. The JURE conference hub does
not have a computer room for you to use to access the internet, and so you may wish to bring a laptop. However, we will have two computers available at the JURE Registration Desk
for drop-in access.
