5-in-5 Presentations

5-in-5's are “5 slides in 5 minutes” oral presentations. 5-in-5 presenters will also be assigned a space to display a  poster at the poster session on the evening of their presentation (June 24 or June 25). This is a great opportunity to draw your 5-in-5 audience members to the poster session! All 5-in-5 presentations will be organized into 90 minutes sessions with 12-14 presentations per session and will run concurrent to the oral sessions. 

The session will have a moderator and in many ways be very similar to traditional oral presentation sessions. Posters will be included in the poster session on the same day as the corresponding 5-in-5 presentation.  You are allowed no more than 5 minutes to make your presentation. There are no exceptions and the session moderator will be strictly controlling session pacing. It is recommended to limit your presentation to 5 sildes of technical content and one additional slide featuring your poster's location at that day’s poster session. All poster locations will be assigned by June 1, 2018. 

PLEASE NOTE:

  • A computer and projector will be available for all sessions.
  • At the conference venue there will be a Speaker Ready Room where you submit your presentation via flash drive. More information will be provided in late May.  
  • You must prepare your presentation for widescreen projection (16:9 aspect ratio).

Poster Size: The maximum size for your poster is 24” x 36”.  The board will be push-pin compatible and push pins will be available. The most successful posters have an uncluttered layout and large graphics. For one of many resources on effective poster layout, visit http://www.ncsu.edu/project/posters.

Setup Time: We request that your poster be set up on the morning of your poster's presentation (Tuesday or Wednesday) before the beginning of that day’s 10:30am Concurrent Oral Sessions. It should remain posted all day. Your poster location will be assigned by June 1.

Poster Removal: Please take your poster down between 7:00 and 8:00 pm on the day of your session. Posters not removed by authors may be removed by staff.

Poster Printing: Poster printing is available through the FedEx office at the conference hotel for pick-up on site and at a discount to 11NCEE presenters. To order your poster online, go to: http://www.fedex.com/us/printing-services/online-printing.html

Oral Presentations (Special Sessions)

Oral presentations will each be 12 minutes, assembled in 90 minute sessions. 

The format of special sessions will vary widely based on the design by the session organizer. The session organizer will inform you of the amount of time for your presentation and any formatting information or other constraints on your presentation.  You may or may not be expected to make a presentation using PPT. We suggest you confer with the session organizer/moderator. If you have a PPT presentation and/or have video content, please review and follow the instructions below.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • A computer and projector will be available for all sessions.
  • There will be a Speaker Ready Room where you submit your presentation via a flash drive.  More information will be provided in late May.
  • If using a PPT, you must prepare your presentation for a widescreen projection (16:9 aspect ratio).

 

Oral Presentations (Technical Sessions)

Speaking time will be divided equally among the number of presentations, usually 6. To allow for introductions and questions, please plan your speaking time to be no more than 12 minutes. In the case when a paper presentation is cancelled in your session, moderators will allow more time for discussion.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • A computer and projector will be available for all sessions.
  • At the conference venue there will be a Speaker Ready Room where you submit your presentation via a flash drive.  More information will be provided in early June.
  • You must prepare your presentation for a widescreen projection (16:9 aspect ratio).

Poster Presentations

Poster sessions will be held from 5:15 - 7:00 PM on Tuesday, June 26 and Wednesday, June 27. 

The layout of the 11NCEE poster sessions have been designed such that posters on similar topics will be grouped together. As a result, poster locations will be assigned. The online and printed program will list complete titles and authors of all poster session papers and they will also be listed on signs near the poster stations.

Size: The maximum size for your poster is 24” x 36”.  The board will be push-pin compatible; a supply of push pins will be available. The most successful posters have an uncluttered layout and large graphics. For one of many websites giving information on effective poster creation, visit http://www.ncsu.edu/project/posters.

Setup Time: We request that your poster be set up in the morning of the day it is assigned (Tuesday or Wednesday) before the beginning of that day’s 10:30am concurrent sessions. It should remain posted all day. Your poster location will be assigned by June 1.

Poster Removal: Please take your poster down between 7:00 and 8:00 pm. Posters not removed by authors may be removed by staff, who will make an effort to store them for retrieval at a later time during the conference, but no guarantees can be made.

Poster Printing: Poster printing is available through the FedEx office at the conference hotel for pick-up on site and at a discount to 11NCEE presenters. To order your poster online, go to: http://www.fedex.com/us/printing-services/online-printing.html

Session Moderator (Concurrent Oral and 5-in-5 Sessions)

Moderator instructions will be announced soon. Check back to this page for updates. 

Paper Formats

The 11NCEE is accepting two paper types for the proceedings: The full paper option has a limit of ten pages, and the extended abstract paper option has a limit of four pages. Specifications for paper length, formatting details, a template, and instructions can be found by downloading the Paper Instructions and Paper Template files. Papers MUST be converted to PDF files before upload to the submissions site.

Submission of Abstracts
The Call for Papers is now closed. We are no longer accepting abstract submissions for the 11NCEE.  

Selection Criteria for Abstracts

Clarity of concepts; objectivity; organization; significance of the technical material; value as an original contribution; clarification or extension of existing information or concepts; adequacy; and treatment of the subject; freedom from commercialism.

Notification of Provisional Acceptance
Due to a record number of abstract submissions, notification of provisional acceptance has been pushed back until September 15, 2017. Authors will receive email notification. After an initial abstract is provisionally accepted the author will write either an extended abstract (4 pages) or a full paper (10 pages). Format requirements for submission of full and extended abstract papers will accompany the notification of provisional acceptance.

Submission of Papers for Review
Final papers, both full and extended abstracts, are due on Monday, November 27, 2017 (this new date is final and includes the two week extension). A non-refundable deposit of $350 must accompany the submission of each paper. The author/payee will receive a coupon code to apply a discount towards their conference registration. Each $350 deposit can be applied once toward the conference registration of any of the authors. An author can apply up to two credits toward their conference registration. Final papers will be reviewed using the same criteria as for abstracts; however, the papers will also be reviewed for relevance to the topic for which they are proposed. http://submissions.mirasmart.com/11NCEE/login.aspx

Notification of Final Acceptance
Authors will receive confirmation of acceptance of their papers no later than mid-April 2018. In the rare and unexpected case that an author's paper is not accepted for any type of presentation but the author has registered for the conference, the full registration fee can be refunded upon the author's request.

Special Sessions

We are no longer accepting special session proposals - thank you for your interest.

The conference will include a small number of special sessions. Attractive special session proposals cross disciplinary and general topic boundaries, and raise challenging issues. The program committee is particularly interested in special session proposals that relate to the conference theme of integrating earthquake science, engineering, and policy, and those that address the hazards, risks and policies related to Southern California, the setting for the conference. Special sessions can be mini-workshops, panels, debates or other unique and engaging formats.

Special session proposals should not be merely a collection of presentations in a general topic area. This type of session will be built by the program committee after reviewing the submitted papers.
