All presenters will be emailed information on how to participate in the #OTESSA20 Flexible Conference. To attend any conference session, there will be no registration fee as we will draw on our sponsorship dollars to support these events. Anyone who wishes to present or publish as part of the #OTESSA20 Flexible Conference must be current members. Every presenter will need to click here to complete the membership application and purchase a 2020 membership.
According to the responses to date, everyone has experienced the pandemic in different ways and, therefore, have chosen different pathways. While some have chosen to present synchronously, others have chosen asynchronous, and still others have chosen to do both. Approximately 1/3 of presenters have chosen to proceed with either the presentations or with publishing their proceedings or full papers only, while 1/3 have opted to defer to next year. We are still waiting on confirmation from the remaining 1/3. Whatever it is you need, we are supportive of you. While we are encouraging the conference to be delimited to the month of June, we have received requests to present in July and we are happy to support that if needed. We are practicing with care and flexibility at this time. If there is something more we can do for you, please let us know. Feel free to reach out to us when you are ready. Anywhere you see deadlines, please consider them as targets and reach out to us with your scheduling needs.
All presentation guidelines (for both synchronous and asynchronous options) as well as our emerging program with dates set as they are chosen by presenters, can be found off of the #OTESSA20 conference website. We will need all presenters opting to proceed with a synchronous or asynchronous presentation to check out the presentation guidelines and complete the presenter sign-up form.
For those with proceedings accepted, we will contact you with a copyedited version to proof before publishing. If there are additional revisions requested, this will be communicated at this time. This copy editing process and proceedings publication will remain in the original OTESSA 2020 Conference submission system.
