Event Program & Conference App Information

ISHR Schedule 10 July version 

NOTA BENE: You can find campus maps under "Travel and Local Information." Abstracts will be available later through the program and the conference app. These schedules are not intended to be tentative, but people do drop out (and have dropped out). 


Presenter Reminders: As you prepare your paper, keep in mind that ISHR presentation units are 30 minutes long: 20 minutes for the paper + 10 for Q&A about only your paper. Panel chairs will make sure every panelist has 30 minutes; it’s up to you to leave time for questions (that is, if you speak for 28 minutes, you will leave 2 minutes for questions.) Rooms will be equipped with A/V.

Chair Duties: If you are chairing, thank you! Your job is not onerous. Please show up to the designated room at least 5 minutes before the panel begins; please introduce each speaker in the publicized panel order (saying their name and paper title is minimalist, yes, but it also does them the courtesy of not eating into their talking time); please make sure each speaker holds to their 30-minute slot (that is, each speaker has 30 minutes total for their paper AND questions about their paper from the audience).

Questions or requested changes regarding the program? Those should go to the program chair, Michele Kennerly (kennerly@psu.edu). For example, if you notice your name is misspelled or your abstract title garbled, please forgive and then email her, and she will fix it for the next version. If it transpires that you need to withdraw your contribution, please email her. Though movement is sure to occur within the program, no one will be moved out of their assigned day.

After making sure the answer is not within the posted conference materials, you may direct any questions regarding anything else conference-related to ISHR President, David Mirhady (dmirhady@sfu.ca), who is planning things from Vancouver. For example, if you require a certificate of acceptance in order to request funding, book a plane ticket, or seek a visa, please email him.

Conference app details coming soon.
