Frequently Asked Questions
How many conference participants will attend my session?
How many participants attend any particular session depends largely on the interest in that particular session, the presenter's name recognition, and how many and what other sessions are available in the same timeslot. Forums Sessions are intended for an audience of 50 to 75 people, but the actual number of participants can range from 4-5 to 70-75. Hands-On Alley Computer Labs will have 30 to 50 stations, depending on the specific lab. Learning Center Courses participation depends largely on the interest in a particular course's content and the presenter's name recognition. Because participation in Learning Center Courses is fee-based, Learning Center Course presenters can request an attendee list prior to the conference. Roundtable Discussions are aimed at audiences of 10 to 12, but in actuality can range from 2-3 to 15-20. Traffic will vary during Poster Session since participants are free to move from one presentation to another.
Can I schedule a rehearsal prior to my session?
Presenters will have the opportunity to schedule an onsite rehearsal. Before the conference, an email will be sent to each session's Key Presenter requesting that person to go online and schedule a rehearsal time prior to their arrival.
