Information for program participants

Will you be presenting a paper or be part of a panel? We have gathered all information you might need on this page. If your questions doesn't get answered here, do not hesitate to contact us on g19contact@genus.gu.se

I am to present a paper, how long time do I have for my presentation? Do you have any specific instructions as to how I perform my presentation?

  • If nothing else is stated, the principle is that the time is divided equally within a session. If your session is one hour long and there are three papers to present, you each have 20 minutes, including discussion.
  • You are welcome to present your paper any way you like. There are whiteboards and writing equipement available in each room. If you wish to show something on a projector, make sure to e-mail your presentation to your appointed chair for the session in advance.
  • The chair will help to keep track of time. You can decide within your group if you wish to open for questions during the presentations, after each one or gathered in the end of the session.
  • Make sure to read the other participants abstract presentations before the conference. You will find them all in the official program book, to be published under Program on this site.
  • There will be an appointed member of the g19 organizing committe in each room to help facilitate and answer questions. Please note that we will not have technical assistance in the room, but you can always found a representative from Folkets hus to answer questions in the reception.
  • If you have not been contacted by the chair for your session one week before the conference, please let us know by e-mail to g19contact@genus.gu.se.

I am to chair/ attend a panel/round table. Do you have any specific instructions for how I should prepare my participation?

  • Each panel/round table is separately planned and organized. This means that we do not have any specific instructions other than the general practical information on these pages. 
  • Each panel/round table decide within the group how to moderate the conversation and manage time. However, in some cases there are two or more panels in the same session. It is therefore very important that you respect the time limit, as each panel has the same amount of time divided equally within the timeslot, and you also need to make some room between the panels to be able to switch seats and make other arrangements with the computers etc.
  • We strongly advise that one person responsible from each round table/panel reach out to the chairs in the other panel before the conference to sort out if there are any practical questions. We are more than happy to assist with finding the e-mailadresses.

What technical equipment do you provide? 

  • Each room has the ability to connect a computer to a projector and show a PPT-presentation, web site, document, or similar on a canvas/screen. The venue has free Wi-Fi.
  • The chair of each session will bring a computer. E-mail your presentation in good time before the conference.
  • The rooms also have writing equipment and whiteboard.
  • For more specific questions on technical matters, contact the organizers.
  • There will be an appointed member of the g19 organizing committe in each room to help facilitate and answer questions. Please note that we will not have technical assistance in the room, but you can always found a representative from Folkets hus to answer questions in the reception.

I am the chair of a session, what is expected from me?

Thank you for helping us facilitating the sessions! We hope that you will follow these instructions to help make your session run smoothly;

  • Make contact with the other persons in your session through e-mailadresses provided by us.
  • Ask for presentations beforehand and save them on your computer and perhaps on a USB-stick as well just in case.
  • Decide within the group how you are to handle the session, for eg in which order you will present, how you would like to handle questions/discussions etc.
  • Arrive at the room for your session at least 10 minutes early to set up your computer, you are asked to bring your own. A member of the organizing committe will meet you at the room.
  • During the session, keep time of the presentations and help facilitate any upcoming questions/discussions.

In what language will we present?

  • The official language of the conference is English, and the vast majority of the presentations will be in English. However, you have been invited to present your abstract in Swedish if you wish, which means that some of the presentations and panels will be held in Swedish.
  • The title of the paper/panel is presented in the program book with the language that will be used. We have tried to keep presentations in the same language in each session but in some cases it will be mixed.
