Conference Over

This conference has closed. This page is kept for archival purposes only. If you have any questions, please contact ISA Headquarters.

The Presentation

How long should my presentation be?
Your Chair will get in touch with you about your panel presentation. They will decide how much time to allocate for individual presentations. In general, the length of your presentation will depend on how many panelists are on your panel, as well as how much time the Chair would like to provide for the Discussant and for a question and answer period.

Will there be PowerPoint capabilities or an overhead projector?
We are happy to confirm that each room at the upcoming ISSS-ISAC conference will have the technology needed for PowerPoint presentations. Please bring your PowerPoint presentation on a flash drive.  You can also email your presentation to yourself, although please note that wireless connections can be spotty at times, so bringing your presentation on a flash drive is strongly recommended.  

Paper Considerations

When do I have to send my paper out?
We do not have a deadline for paper submissions. We do recommend that you submit your paper to your discussant and fellow panelists at least a week prior to the conference.

How long should my paper be?
We do not have a page length requirement for the papers. Working papers are acceptable.
