Panel sessions are comprised of presentations on a particular theme by three or more students. Sessions are limited to 60 minutes, of which 10 minutes must be set aside for Q&A or other discussion. (In other words, student presentations, in whatever format(s), should take up no more than 50 minutes of the 60-minute session).
We highly encourage innovative session presentation formats in addition to the traditional panel format. This could involve audience engagement, lightning talks, photo essays, artist talks, conversation-based discussions, and more.
Each panel must designate a panel moderator who will serve as the main contact.
Participating panelists must submit:
- Title of individual presentation
- Abstract of individual presentation (200 words max.)
- Name and email of panel moderator
- Name and email of your academic advisor
In addition to their own individual presentation information, the panel moderator must submit a title of their panel session.
