NCUR 2020 Needs Graduate Student Moderators!
Moderator Application Deadline: Ongoing
NCUR 2020: March 26-28
Consider applying; it could look great on your CV! A moderator’s primary function
is to ensure that an oral presentation session runs smoothly. This means keeping every
presenter on schedule, facilitating the question and answer section as necessary,
and acting as the primary point of contact to resolve any issues that may arise.
Each session is 1 hour, made up of three 20-minute presentations; with specific timeslots
for each presenter. Typically a Q&A session occurs for the last five minutes of each
session. Presenters may cut their talk short, but cannot take more time. Your job
will be to enforce time limits when necessary. Attendees are encouraged to stay for
an entire hour-long timeslot, but realistically, many attendees quickly move from
room to room to see particular presentations. This is acceptable.
Please follow the link to sign up for a role as a Moderator. If you have any questions, feel free to email Gregory Young. Follow the link for further information on NCUR 2020.
