Each paper is assigned
to its own time slot. The author is given 12 minutes to present his or her
paper, leaving approximately 15 minutes for questions and discussion from
the audience. There is no discussant. After 27 minutes, the session is
ended, leaving three minutes to switch rooms. Because all three rooms must
run on exactly the same schedule, all time limits will be strictly
enforced by session chairs. Authors should carefully plan their
presentations to make sure they are no longer than 12 minutes. Multiple
presenters on the same paper are discouraged as they almost always exceed
the time limit.
Conference Expenses and Funding
The IPES does not have any permanent institutional
support. We will be charging a registration fee of $50 for
faculty and $25 for graduate students attending the conference. All
participants must pre-register for conferences.
Instructions and links will be available on the IPES homepage as the conference approaches.
All participants are expected to pay their own
travel and hotel expenses. We understand that travel funds are limited for
everyone. We hope that the high quality of the meeting and discussions
will make this a worthwhile expense.
