(It is the responsibility of panel chairs to ensure that their sessions start and end on time!)

Panels — Each panel will be made up of 4-6 presenters in the traditional paper presentation format. Each presenter will be allowed 15-20 minutes to accommodate all participants with the session’s time frame or as set by the chair. Every panel should be followed by Q&A. Several sessions may run concurrently.

Roundtable —Each roundtable session will include 4-6 participants in this format: each presenter should give a brief, informal presentation (5-10 minutes), with the remainder of the session given to a conversation between the participants and the audience. While keeping time and directing the flow, chairs of roundtable may also be part of the session. Two roundtable sessions may run concurrently.

Special Session – Special session will be made up of 3-6 where participants read excerpts of their work in poetry, fiction, nonfiction or other genres. Special session may run concurrently or incorporated into a plenary session, if necessary.
