To help prepare for PAA and improve your presentation skills, CSDE is hosting a practice presentation session the week before PAA. We hope that everyone will attend to present, discuss, or just observe! The format is informal and is a great opportunity to hone your presentation and get feedback from friends and colleagues. Faculty reviewers will be assigned to each paper and provide feedback on the design and delivery of your presentation. We will also have a mock poster session where you will be able to share electronic drafts of your posters (displayed on large computer screens, so early printing isn’t necessary). Lunch will be provided.

All PAA participants – regardless of experience – are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this important opportunity for feedback. Please use this page to indicate your participation. We’ll use the same page for uploading your presentation materials in a few weeks. Note that if you’re presenting multiple papers, please select only one that you would like to present. Additional posters are always welcome. If you would like to share a presentation and a poster, please complete the form twice.
