    As you already know, all the papers have been grouped into 31 panels to run on Zoom. If you have not done that yet, please go ahead and reserve your seat in as many panels as you would like to attend. All panels can be accessed right from the homepage at https://igbostudiesassociation.org.

    The 2021 virtual conference is really here. I have some information to share.

    Reserving a seat in the panels

    The panels are listed on our website. Please note that the panels are scheduled to run on Nigerian time. Depending on where you live in the world, you will need to match the time to your local time. Please review the panels and sign up in as many of them as you would like to attend. Only those who reserved a seat in a panel will receive the meeting ID, link and password to be able to join the panel. That will be sent out shortly.

    This year's conference is being organized through Zoom video conferencing technology. We did ask you to record your video ahead of time in order to minimize technical issues. Below are steps to present your paper via Zoom:

    1. Prepare ahead and ensure that your pre-recorded video is available on the system/computer you will be using to log into the conference

    2. When it is your turn to present, the Panel Chair will announce and invite you to present.

    The following tips were adapted from the Southwest Popular/American Culture Association.

    What duties are expected of me as a panel chair?

    As a panel chair, you have three primary duties:
    1. introducing the presenters in a session,
    2. keeping time during the session, and
    3. facilitating the question (Q) and answer (A) at the end of the session.
