Getting to and into the buildings. NYU does not allow us to put up signs directing you to the site of the conference, so please make sure to look up where everything is before you arrive. There are maps on the Local information page. Also, access to all NYU buildings requires a government-issued picture ID such as a passport or US state driver’s license.

Internet access. You can connect to NYU’s eduroam  network anytime using your home institution’s credentials; check your university’s IT department instructions.

Conference booklets. We will not be printing paper programs, but there will be a printout of the schedule and one printed copy of the program at the registration desk. Please bring an electronic device if you want to look at the abstracts during the conference. A single PDF with all the abstracts can be downloaded here.

Talks. Talks are 20 minutes, plus 10 minutes for questions/discussion. Please take time to introduce yourself to the session chair before the start of your session. The session chair will keep time for you and let you know when you have 10 minutes, 5 minutes, and 1 minute left. If you go overtime, that will just take time out of your discussion period.

Projecting slides. Laptops can be attached to the projector in the auditorium using either HDMI or VGA cables. We recommend that you test your presentation set-up during a break before your session to ensure that there are no technical problems.  Please make sure you bring any dongles your computer requires. NYU’s Computer Store is on Broadway, just a few blocks away from the main session site. All of the rooms will accommodate a VGA connector; the main sessions room projector can take either a VGA or a DVI connector.

We recommend testing your laptop on the day of the talk before your session, and we also suggest that you bring your presentation in PDF format on a USB stick, so that you can present from a different computer in case of equipment failure.

Due to the acoustic properties of the main session room, a lapel microphone will be provided for use during the talks. If you need to play audio, sound connectors are available (a standard 1/8″ jack like the one on the headphones you plug into your laptop). Please let us know as soon as possible if you have any additional technical requirements.

Posters. Poster sessions are 90 minutes long. You should be prepared to attend your poster and answer audience questions throughout your session.

Thumbtacks and tape will be provided. Poster board dimensions will be available soon.

Here are some tips for designing an effective poster: (with pictures of good and bad posters) (specific to linguistics, note that information on poster dimensions may not apply to our conference)


Handouts. If you plan on using handouts, we recommend bringing about 120 copies. There are several copy shops in the area should you need to make more copies.
