Please reach out to us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you're interested in leadership and service roles. We create a diverse pool of attendees and members that are willing to serve in these roles and we'd love to have your participation.
The primary role of the panelist is to carefully prepare, share, and present their research work (whether draft papers, essays in progress, content slides, discussion points, models, etc.) during their scheduled session. The goal is to create a dialogue between the presenter, fellow panelists, and audience, so presenters are encouraged not only to prepare their own presentations but review the work of their fellow panelists to help contribute to the overall discussion. The best panels are those where all participants are welcoming, supportive, and respectful of each others work and build a lively discussion that contributes to knowledge creation and networking.
