ISA West 2016 - Chair/Discussant Information

If you have not done so already, I recommend connecting with the authors on your panels to let them know the best way to submit their papers to you and the date by which you would like them. Traditionally, presenters should send their papers two weeks before the conference (which has already passed for us). If you are feeling generous and have a true sense for when you are likely to read the papers, you may let presenters know when you would like those papers and after which time you won't have time to read them and provide thoughtful comments. You can find your panels and author email addresses by logging into the ISA website and doing a search for your panels.

Secondly, each room will be equipped with a projector and screen, unfortunately, ISA West cannot at this time provide computers. One of your responsibilities is to ensure that there is at least one laptop on hand that can be connected to the projector. (For example, tablets will likely not be able to connect.) If someone brings a Mac, they will also need to bring along a "dongle." We will not be providing those either. If a presenter tells you they will bring a laptop and you feel like relying on them, feel free to do so. Otherwise, it may be best to bring your own. This can all be included in the email you send presenters.

Thanks to all chairs and discussants for your willingness to serve as a chair and/or discussant this year. You will help make the conference a success!
