FAQ

Q

When is the deadline for paper submissions?

A

The deadline for submitting to the 2013 conference is 20 January 2013.

Q

When & how will I be notified of paper selection?

A

ICHRIE will notify all lead authors (only) the first week of April 2013 of the decisions of the Scientific Paper Review Committee and Symposium Review Committee regarding conference presentation submissions. It is the responsibility of the lead author to notify his/her other co-presenters whether the paper has been accepted for presentation at the St. Louis, Missouri USA conference.

Q

Can I request a date or time for my presentation?

A

The ICHRIE Call for Papers states that all persons submitting conference presentations must be available for any day of the conference. The conference schedule is determined by a joint effort of the ICHRIE Director of Networking, the Conference Review Committee, and ICHRIE staff.

Due to the volume of sessions offered during the ICHRIE conference, it is not possible to offer presenters a choice of day or time for presentations. The team assigned to finalize the conference schedules needs the freedom to select the most appropriate presentations for each concurrent session time slot in order to achieve our goal of providing a diverse and balanced offering during each concurrent session time slot.

Q

My school/company is a member of ICHRIE. Does that mean I can register as a member?

A

Unless your name is listed in the ICHRIE membership database as the contact person for the institutional or corporate membership, you must be an individual member of ICHRIE in good standing or one of the three names associated with a Premium membership to register for the conference at the member rate. Each institutional or corporate ICHRIE membership has only one person designated as the institutional or corporate membership holder as indicated on the ICHRIE membership application. Premium Memberships have three contacts who are eligible for discounted member rate at the ICHRIE Conference. Discounts are not transferrable to non-members.

Q

Will ICHRIE provide the audio/visual equipment I need for my individual presentation/ session?

A

*** New for 2013 *** ICHRIE will provide an LCD projector and screen for all sessions.

Q

Can I post a job opening at the 2012 ICHRIE Conference?
