The 2014 TUgis Advisory Committee is pleased to accept presentation proposals. Presentations can be one of the following: individual, panel, workshops, and lightning talks. We are excited to be modernizing the submission process this year by using a new online submission platform.
To submit a presentation proposal you need to:
Panel presentations focus on a specific topic and consist of either a series of presentations or a discussion of a topic by a panel in front of an audience. As part of a panel presentation it is required that the presenters designate a chairperson who is responsible for organizing and arranging the presentations. Panel presentations can either be 40 or 90 minutes.
Workshops should provide 90 minutes of hands-on training for a specific application or topic. Workshops will be held in state-of-the art computer labs that range from 15 to 35 seats. Workshops should involve the participants in an activity and teach them a new skill. In the past, successful workshops have had participants log into guest accounts; users have been able to save their work for future use; and many presenters produce training materials. Presenters are responsible for providing the software and other specifications to us by February 1st.
Lightning Talks are 5 minute presentations presented in a fast-moving, exciting format. Each presentation can include a static poster, live demo, or utilize technology. Presenters are required to bring their own equipment. Internet access will be available.
All sessions and workshops will take place in smart rooms equipped with Microsoft Windows, MS Office 2007 suite, Internet access, LCD Projector with a minimum of 1024×768 resolution, and screens. Presenters are strongly discouraged from using their own laptops. Instead, all presentations should be loaded onto the podium computer beforehand from optical media (CD-ROM/DVD) or USB drives with native Windows XP drivers. Software demonstrations requiring internet access should not use the local wifi signal; please use the podium computer instead, or use the podium Ethernet cable and a guest account.
The TUgis Advisory Committee, with recommendations from the TUgis Program Sub-Committee, is responsible for reviewing and selecting presentations. Notification of decisions will be sent by e-mail by Friday, January 24, 2014.
Submissions will be evaluated according to their quality, which will be judged by the following:
