HANDOUT BOOKLET (GIVEN TO THE ATTENDEES AT THE WORKSHOP)

 

What we need:

·        Your presentation package for the Handout Booklet should include (1) a Title/Abstract/Biography page and (2) your presentation viewgraphs. The Title/Abstract/Bio page should include the presentation title, authors, affiliation and address information, (including mailing address, phone, fax and email), a 200 word maximum abstract, and a one-paragraph biography of the presenting author. Please see "Visual_Example.pdf”.

·        Electronic files of your viewgraph presentation and title/abstract/bio page should be submitted to your mentor and, after approval, sent to SAR Associates for inclusion in the Handout Booklet by the above defined dates. Please ensure that the paper format is set either to (i) 8.5x11 inch paper or (ii) A4 paper with the margins set to fit an 8.5x11 format. Potential issues with electronic submissions are font and graphics rendering problems that may go undetected without a (hard) copy to proof against. To ensure the printers can detect and resolve such problems an additional PDF version (fonts must be imbedded, see instructions of Distiller for correct settings) of the PPT-file or a high quality fax (+1 315-336-9134) is required.

 

Viewgraphs guidelines:

Authors are requested to conform to the following guidelines for their presentation.  (These guidelines are intended to provide for suitable projection in the meeting room at the workshop, as well as uniformity and readability after reduction and inclusion in the Workshop Handout Booklet, which will be given to all participants at the start of the Workshop.  Please see Example)

 

 

MANUSCRIPT INSTRUCTUIONS FOR FINAL REPORT

NOTE: IF WE DO NOT RECEIVE YOUR FINAL MANUSCRIPT AT THE WORKSHOP, THE ORIGINAL PRESENTATION PROPOSAL YOU PROVIDED WILL BE SUBSTITUTED.

 

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS (Due Oct. 27, 2006)

 

In the linked example file, "Final_Report_Ex.pdf" you will note a Questions and Answers Section at the end of the work.  These are questions that were asked during the presentation.   Questions will be recorded during the presentation and given to the presenter afterwards.  This will aid in the preparation of the Questions and Answers Section.  Please provide the Questions and Answers in text form via email to SAR by 10/27/06.  Please identify the paper title, main author, and paper number in this email submission and use the subject: International IRW06 Q&A.  Again: this should be a separate Q&A-only text email.  Your final paper was due at IRW 2006.

If you wish additional help please contact your mentor or session chair. They can help you ensure that your Final Report submission conforms to the agreed guidelines.  While your mentor is your first point of contact, please contact us with any questions.  As you see, our schedule for completion of the report is very tight.  We are counting on your efforts in helping us meet the deadline.  Thank you in advance for your assistance in completing the 2006 IRW Final Report in a timely manner.
