FAQs

Q: I’m part of a pre-organized panel. Do I need to submit an individual abstract?

A: Yes. Every member of a pre-organized panel must submit their own abstract (as well as the title of the panel and the chair’s name).

Q: What can the university provide in way of equipment and facilities for workshops?

A: SLSA has the use of conventional conference facilities including standard audio-visual equipment. Thus, in most cases workshop and special event organizers will have to provide any specialized tools and equipment.

Q: What if my worshop really can’t take place in that kind of space? Are there any alternatives?

A: Maybe. Contact us and let us know the specifics of your idea.

Q: Does taking part in the art exhibition have any costs for participants?

A: No! Your submitted image and text will be printed out by the university for the exhibition.

Q: Can my paper be added to one of the pre-organized panels if it’s a good fit?

A: Maybe. If your paper fits a pre-organized panel, and if there is space, we will do our best to fit you in.

Q: Do I need to pay for food?

A: Getting a quick lunch is tough on a university campus of forty thousand people, so we have elected to provide lunch in order to ensure that everyone is able to get food in a timely manner. We will make sure to have various options on hand (i.e vegan, vegetarian, etc) and will poll conference attendees about their preferences in the fall.

Q: Who should I contact if I have a question that isn’t addressed here?

A: Please email our Conference Assistant, Ivette Morales, slsaucirvine@gmail.com.

Q: Do I need to be a member of SLSA to submit to the conference? 

A: No, you would only need to become a member once your proposal has been accepted.
