Information for authors
Below are some pointers that have proven helpful in past conferences in keeping the information accessible to both deaf and hearing participants. Your collaboration will help to establish and support an excellent environment for communicating scholarly, scientific discourse.
Abstracts as originally submitted are currently available on the programme page. If you wish to make any changes to your abstract for the conference abstract booklet, please upload an updated version of your original abstract to Easy Chair by MONDAY 3 JUNE, 2013, in Word or text format. (After logging in to Easy Chair, choose the appropriate submission under My Submissions, then click on “Submit a new version” in the upper right corner.) Feel free to make minor corrections (e.g. typos or grammatical/mechanical errors) to this updated version of your abstract but please do not change content or add/delete authors. Note that the conference abstract booklet will be available online as a downloadable PDF by mid-late June; there will be no printed abstract book. Author names, affiliations and primary contact email (as in Easy Chair) will be shown along with each abstract. If you would rather not give your contact details, please inform us by Monday 3 June at email@example.com.
Interpreter preparation and technical requirements:
Please provide a draft of your Powerpoint presentation, poster, or outline/notes, and if possible, the text of your talk to TISLR2013interpreting@gmail.com, no later than WEDNESDAY 19 JUNE, 2013. This is important because your presentation/poster is likely to be interpreted between at least 2 sets of languages (BSL/English and ASL/English) and in many cases more than that. It is therefore essential that we receive your preparation materials by this time in order for our interpreting teams to prepare. This will ensure that your talk or poster is communicated as accurately as possible to all delegates. The preparation that you send does not have to be the final version (i.e. exactly what you will present); a draft will suffice.
Please include in your email:
1.The first/corresponding author’s name and the title of your talk/poster in the subject heading of your email
2. Author name in the name of the attachment, a tag to indicate it is a draft form, and also the date of submission: e.g. AUTHORNAME_DRAFT_DATE.ext – e.g. Woll_DRAFT_19June2013.ppt.
In addition for paper presenters only:
3. Please specify what software you will use for your presentation (options are MS Powerpoint for PC, MS Powerpoint for Mac, or Apple Keynote). We strongly recommend that you use the computers (PC/Mac) that will be provided in the theatre, but if you must use your own laptop, please inform us by this date as well.
4. Any terms or signs that may have very specific usage or novel application in your presentation.
5. Any additional technical requirements.
addition, for presenters of talks, if you will be using slides, the final draft
must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org,
no later than THURSDAY 4 JULY, 2013, so that we may pre-load your slides to the
system that will be used in the theatre.
