We will send you a schedule and you can choose the time and day that is best for you. Each live presentation is one hour, and you can present from your own computer at home or while traveling. We will give you instruction where to go online to present, and can setup a rehearsal a week before.

When you submit your papers, abstracts, videos and slides, your work will be posted for you on your own Presentation Web Page, including your bio. After the live presentation is over, we will post the video of your presentation on your web page too. Visitors will be able to see your video and read your papers and see your slides for years to come.

We look forward to reading and viewing your work with SignWriting, and we hope to meet you in July 2016 online!
