Sessions and Papers
The parallel sessions will begin at 8:00 AM and last one hour. There will be a five minute break between each session to allow participants to attend the next session. It will impossible to attend all the sessions, so each participant will need to choose those sessions or papers they deem most interesting.
Each reader will have twenty minutes to give his/her paper. The moderators will monitor the length of each paper strictly. Also, please limit your presentation so that there is an opportunity for questions and comments.
Every room will have a full complement of audio-visual equipment and technical assistance provided. Please avail yourselves of the technical assistance.
The Program for Cine-Lit VIII will be sent to you via email as soon as it is ready.
You will also receive a printed version of the program in your folder upon arrival and check-in.
