2014 Conference Poster
Save the date! This year’s conference will be held February 28th and March 1st of 2014.
Please stay tuned for information regarding the application process and general information for the 2014 edition of the Annual Graduate Strategic Studies Conference.
Check out a small sampling of the photos we captured over the past few days on the new Photos page: http://strategyconference.ca/2013-photos
Again, if you want some photos of yourself, please email us and we’ll do our best to find and send them to you.
Of course, the smoothness with which the conference ran inevitably comes with a price: the Sunday snow storm has likely caused much delay on your parts, and for that we apologize. We wish you the best of luck in a speedy return to your homes!
As mentioned in my email to presenters, I am updating with some info on WiFi availability at the conference venue and latest weather conditions.
Rozsa Centre does appear to have an open-access guest WiFi network, called RC Conference. It should be available throughout the entirety of the conference. Nonetheless, Eduroam will be a good backup in case the former is not made available.
Latest weather indicates above-freezing temperatures for daytime, which, combined with the snow that’s on the ground, guarantees a slushy outdoor experience. Thus, bring suitable footwear.
Looking forward to seeing you all at the reception and at the conference!
I know you’ve all been waiting very impatiently for this – here is the program in all its (compressed PDF) glory! You’ll find some basic conference info as well as the schedule for when each of the presenters and speakers are on stage.
You can download the program PDF here: 2013 S3C Conference Program – Digital Copy
Physical print copies will be available for presenters, chairs, and speakers in your welcome package when you arrive.
Just a few details as the conference approaches – these and more will be sent out in an email later next week.
1. Presentations: a maximum of 15 minutes per presentation. Q&A will take place at the end of each panel and will last for 10-15 minutes.
2. If you have a PowerPoint file that needs to be put up, please have it ready for us by the break (whether breakfast, lunch, or coffee break) nearest to your panel’s time. The schedule will be uploaded next week as well.
3. If you want to use the university’s WiFi at the conference venue, we would suggest that you set up Eduroam on your device before coming over. Contact your school’s IT department if you’re not sure how to do this.
4. The weather here in Calgary can change very abruptly – check the weather forecasts before packing!
