For everyone except the keynote and the elevator pitches, 10 minutes is the amount of time you have for your talk. Presenters from past years will tell you that we're absolutely strict about time (ask them about our countdown clock). It keeps the conference on schedule AND (for you student presenters), it's a factor in our evaluation for student awards!
For late breaking questions about carpooling and ski excursions.
We will see all of you in one week. Any questions, email ski-canada AT geog DOT mcgill DOT ca.
If you need to make changes to your presentaion file, please send them to ski-canada AT Geog DOT Mcgill DOT ca.
