Presenter FAQs

Presentation Tips

The League for Innovation thanks you for agreeing to be a presenter at the 2010 STEMtech. Your participation in this year’s conference provides other participants with the opportunity to discuss best practices involving the STEM disciplines - science, technology, engineering, mathematics – and explore the intelligent application of information technology in community and technical colleges.

The League for Innovation reserves the right to accept or reject any proposal. Reasons for rejection include, but are not limited to, topics not appropriate for the conference’s theme, insufficient space on the program, and failure to register for the conference.

If your proposal is accepted and you agree to present it, you must register for the conference by Friday, September 24, 2010 to ensure your name appears in the Conference Program.

  • May 14: Presentation schedules sent via email
  • May 21: Presenter Agreement Forms due

Registration Details
Every presenter is required to register and pay the conference fee. Please register on or before October 1, 2010 in order to receive the Early Registration Discount. A $50 discount is available to participants from League Alliance institutions.

Once presenters have registered, an invoice/confirmation will be provided. If an invoice/confirmation is not received, please email Judy Greenfield, or call (480) 705-8200, x200. Neither honoraria nor expenses will be provided to session presenters.

Cancellation Policy
We understand that there may be extenuating circumstances that preclude participation. Should this occur, we appreciate your help in minimizing the impact of such changes. If you find that you are unable to attend the conference, please email Wendy Neil as soon as possible. In the message, include your name, the title of your presentation, and the reason you are canceling.

Please note that you are responsible for payment if you do not cancel and do not attend. Refunds minus a $50 cancellation fee will be issued after the conference for cancellations received in writing by October 1, 2010. No refunds will be issued after October 1, 2010, but can be applied toward a future conference or Summit. Participant substitutions can be made at any time.

Hotel and Travel
Special conference hotel and travel rates have been contracted for the 2010 STEMtech. Detailed rate and reservation information is currently available. It is strongly recommended that you make your hotel room reservation early in order to assure that you secure a room in the conference's discounted block of rooms. Please note that making reservations outside of the room block using third parties, meeting planners, housing bureaus, or online tools impacts the League for Innovation’s ability to meet its obligations and control attendee registration costs. It also places the League for Innovation in a weaker position to contract for future destinations that will best meet the needs of our members. Please make your room reservation by calling the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort directly at (800) 227-1500 and using the code “League for Innovation” or by clicking on the “Make Your Hotel Reservation” button found on the conference’s hotel and travel web page.

Conference Schedule
The 2010 STEMtech will take place over 3.5 days starting 8:00 a.m. Sunday, October 31 and ending at 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 3. The Conference at a Glance provides a “big picture” view of all activities taking place at the conference.

Video Streaming Sessions
Certain sessions may be selected to be video streamed and recorded for future delivery on the League for Innovation’s iStream website. If a session is selected, all session presenters will be notified and asked for their permission to video stream and record their session. No session will be video streamed and recorded without written permission from all presenters involved in that session.

Session Formats
Session formats include Concurrent Sessions, Roundtable Discussions, and Poster Sessions. Each session format is described in detail at Session Format Descriptions.

Presentations Posted on the Web
Presentations will be posted on the League for Innovation’s website after the conference for presenters who provide their files. This is entirely optional. Presenters who want their files posted online should send them to Wendy Neil at prior to the conference (include session title, presenter name(s), and day/time of the presentation) or provide them to the Speaker Support Office upon arriving onsite. Files will not be edited or changed and will be posted exactly as they are received.

Contact Wendy Neil at or (480) 705-8200, ext. 234.
