Session proposals for NETA 2012 were due November 18, 2011. Those who submitted will receive an email by February 1, 2012 indicating whether or not their session was accepted.
Demonstration sessions will last 45 minutes and involve just one presenter or a presenter and co-presenters. A majority of our sessions are demonstration style.
A poster/gallery session allows many presenters to set up in one large session room with poster boards or other resources. It is possible to bring a computer for the gallery showing if it is stated ahead of time on the proposal. Participants stroll through the gallery in an informal manner while presenters show projects and answer questions. Playground sessions last 1 hr. 45 minutes. Poster session are for 45 minutes.
Playground sessions have a similar setup to poster sessions, but last for 1 hr. 45 minutes. These are designed so attendees can experience the technology being demonstrated.
NEW last year—Conversation (round table discussion) sessions will allow attendees to discuss a variety of technology-related topics. It's not a stand and deliver presentation, rather an opportunity to learn from the crowd.
BYOD sessions (Bring Your Own Device)
These sessions are designed to be very interactive with participants having ample time to utilize their device. The BYOD sessions are 1.5 hours in length. Please register early as these sessions have a limited number of seats. You will need your ticket (printed on your name badge sheet) to be admitted.
Lead presenters will pay the significantly reduced rate of $25.00 and are expected to provide ample handouts or Web/email access to their information. A co-presenter may assist in the session. A co-presenter must, however, register for the conference as a regular attendee ($115.00 full conference or $80.00 for one day). A limit of three presenters per session will be printed in the program. Students are allowed to assist in a presentation as guests of the conference (limit of four, and must be supervised at all times).
Presenters are asked to upload their handouts, presentation files, and/or web resources to the NETA Conference site. This will allow attendees to search the site during or after the conference to retrieve session resources.
Questions should be directed to Bob Goeman, President Elect/Conference Chair by email at
