NASSH Presentation Guidelines
*(“presenter” refers to authors and all co-authors as well as members of panels/roundtables)
- Presenters may not be on the program more than two times as a presenter. Moderating a session does not count as a presentation. Commentating does count and only complete sessions which include commentators will have commentators.
- Submission of an abstract indicates the author’s and co- authors’ intent to register for the conference at the appropriate conference fee in the appropriate format (e.g., in-person, remote).
- Individuals whose papers are accepted by the Program Committee as in-person presentations must agree to present the paper in person and to attend and participate in other conference sessions.
- Individuals whose papers are accepted by the Program Committee as a virtual presentation must agree to provide a recorded presentation by the deadline (May 1, 2024). Presenters of virtual papers agree to appear live for the question-and-answer period following their session.
- All authors must be NASSH members in good standing (https://www.nassh.org/membership/), and membership dues must be paid by April 15, 2024, for papers to be included on the final program.
- Each presenter must register for the conference.
- NASSH members submitting abstracts for individual papers or as part of themed panels should be aware that the presentation of their work will be scheduled at the discretion of the Program Committee sometime between Saturday, May 25, and Monday, May 27 (inclusive). Specific scheduling requests will not be accepted.
- NASSH encourages the inclusion of diverse perspectives and communities at its conference and in its work. Those submitting proposals for panels are advised to ensure that the constitution of the panel reflects, or comments upon, the constitution of the field and/or research topic that is being addressed.
- Except for supporting graduate students through the Roberta Park Fund, NASSH pays no honoraria or any other expenses for speakers to prepare papers or to attend the conference.
- Papers are to be original works, not published or presented in full elsewhere.
- Individuals whose abstracts are accepted by the program committee must deliver the paper summarized by the abstract and not some other piece of work.
- Presenters should not be the moderator of the session in which they present.
- All abstracts accepted for presentation will be published in the annual NASSH Proceedings. Prior to the conference, accepted abstracts will be posted to the NASSH website using a Creative Commons CC-BY attribution license. Authors will have an opportunity to edit them prior to their publication in the Proceedings.
- Moderators will firmly enforce time limits for papers. Speakers should plan on no more than two minutes per page (calculated on the time it takes to read a double-spaced page in 12-point Times New Roman font consisting of 25 lines).
- LCD projectors will be available. Please let the conference hosts know if speakers or other media are needed. They may not be able to accommodate all requests.
- Participants are encouraged to familiarize themselves with recommendations on accessibility of presentations and multimedia-based materials. Please consult the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Initiative Guidelines on Presentation Accessibility: https://www.w3.org/WAI/training/accessible.
