The speakers are finalizing their slides, warming up their voices and prepared to share the most up-to-date information with you. With less than a week to go, the countdown to WREF2012 has begun!
This year we’re happy to offer you a number of different formats for presentations. Here’s a handy glossary to help in your selection of the talks you’d like to attend.
Forum – These sessions typically do not include a presentation of an academic paper but may include several speakers in a panel format. Forum sessions are led by a moderator/organizer.
Ignite – We’re thrilled to bring this new format to WREF 2012. In coordination with O’Reilly Media and the global Ignite network, we will have several sessions at WREF that follow the dynamic and fast-paced Ignite format. During an Ignite, speakers will give a 5 minute presentation where the slides automatically advance every 15 seconds.
Poster – During a poster session, presenters will display the information from their paper in a poster format and will be available for discussion at certain times.
Technical – Similar to past ASES conferences, technical talks include brief presentations of research papers. Several presenters are grouped into each technical session and are moderated.
