LEAD PRESENTER REGISTRATION AND PROGRAM BOOK LISTING
There is one lead presenter per 75-minute workshop or short course. Lead presenters who are CASE members (current through October 31, 2023) receive a 50% discount on their conference registration. If the lead presenter's membership expires before October 31, 2023 or if the presenter is not a current member, the presenter must renew or join to receive the 50% discount, or pay the full nonmember registration rate. The presenter will be provided with a presenter registration form if the proposal is accepted and the presenter confirms his/her participation as a lead presenter.
Only one lead presenter per 75-minute workshop or short course will be listed in the conference program and on the conference website.
CO-PRESENTER REGISTRATION AND PROGRAM BOOK LISTING
Up to two (2) Co-presenters, per session, who are current CASE members (current through October 31, 2023) will receive a $25 discount on their conference registration. If the co-presenter’s membership expires before October 31, 2023 or if the co-presenter is not a current member, the co-presenter must renew or join to receive the $25 discount or pay the full non-member registration rate.
Only two co-presenters per 75-minute workshop or short course will be listed in the conference program and on the conference website. The co-presenter will be listed after the co-presenter has registered for the conference and if their name is submitted by the lead presenter as their co-presenter.
AUDIO-VISUAL EQUIPMENT AND INTERNET ACCESS
CASE provides LCD projectors and a screen in all meeting rooms at no cost. Laptops and adapters (dongles) for MACs to use the LCD projector will not be provided. Wi-Fi access will be provided for all meeting rooms. However, this will be an open Wi-Fi network, so if you plan to stream large files, it is recommended you download them first as internet speeds cannot be guaranteed. If a presenter provides his or her own audio-visual equipment and experiences technical difficulties or equipment failure, technical support will not be available from CASE or CASE-contracted audio-visual provider.
MEETING ROOM FACILITIES
Meeting rooms will be set classroom style with tables and chairs.
Damage to the room (carpeting, walls, tables, chairs, AV equipment, etc.) from water or other materials used during any short course will be the responsibility of the presenter. Note: Rooms do not have sinks, and water may not be readily available. Presenters may bring their own bottled water for use during their presentations. Please also note below restrictions regarding open flames and hazardous and/or flammable materials.
75-minute workshops or Short Courses are not to be used as a forum for demonstrating or promoting a product or service for sale. This includes products or services for sale by for-profit and non-profit companies and organizations. Presenters are encouraged to use care when preparing their presentations to avoid any commercialism or what may be perceived by attendees as commercialism.
SALE OF ITEMS
No sale of items may occur in any meeting room at any time. Sales are restricted to exhibit booths in the exhibit hall.
SCHEDULE CHANGE REQUESTS
Once programs have been assigned a date and time, requests for changes to scheduling are highly discouraged. Should the presenter find it necessary to request a schedule change, please know that a strong possibility exists that the 75-minute workshop or short course may not be able to be re-scheduled to accommodate the presenter’s request. CASE reserves the right to make schedule changes as necessary.
