I have to travel a great distance and cannot afford flights, but I have been accepted to present. Is there funding available?
The Ostrom Workshop has limited funding to assist conference attendees. Unfortunately we are not able to provide travel funds for anyone.
Contactwow@iu.edu if you are a student and need help with registration and/or lodging.
If you are a junior faculty from a low or low-middle income country and need to request non-travel funding information, fill out this form by March 1st. After that funding is available on a first come, first serve basis and firstname.lastname@example.org can be contacted for questions.
Where do I post my conference paper? Papers are to be posted in the Digital Library of the Commons. To upload your paper, follow this LINK, click "Submit an Item" and follow the directions. Papers must include THIS COVER PAGE with your information on it, and should be uploaded no later than May 15.
Will copies of papers be available at the conference? No, paper copies will not be provided.
Will panel sessions be recorded or live streamed? No, recording and live video streaming services of panels will not be available. We will record the plenary sessions and post them to ourYouTube Channel.
What time shall I have for my presentation? Panels will be 90 minutes. At least 30 minutes should be reserved for questions and discussion after presentations. That leaves a maximum of 60 minutes for all presentations on a panel, so, for example, if you are on a panel with four presenters, each presenter would have a maximum of 15 minutes.
What is the presentation equipment in a meeting room? Presentation rooms will be equipped with a laptop and projector for PowerPoint presentations. Please bring your presentation on a USB flash drive.
When and where will the poster sessions be held? The first day of the conference (June 19th) we are going to have a lovely reception between 5:15 P.M. and 6:30 P.M. in the Indiana University President’s Hall. This is included in registration. Drinks and appetizers are provided. Poster presenters are requested to staff posters at this time. Posters will be located around the hall, allowing for a wonderful time of visiting and socializing along with research discussions.
What should you avoid in a poster? Avoid very long titles. A short and clear title will give your poster's reader an instant idea of what the poster is about. Avoid font sizes below 24 point, anything smaller than this will require the reader to stand very close to the poster, and may be uncomfortable to read. Avoid using too many different type faces.
Do you put references/citations on a poster presentation? Yes, please include your sources on a research poster, just as you would for a paper
How do you prepare for a poster session at a conference? Prepare and practice a 1-2 minute oral presentation of your research prior to the event. During the poster session, stand near your poster for the bulk of the reception to field discussion, questions, etc.
