Guidelines for Performances

Performances scheduled during the Oral Presentation time will be limited to a maximum of 12 minutes and require the submission of an Abstract/Artist’s Statement through the online submission form. Please indicate any special needs you may require, such as a piano, microphone, dance space, etc.

Special Considerations for Performances:

  • If your performance (including any set-up/take-down) will last significantly less than 12 minutes, please indicate the estimated time in the Special Needs section of the submission form.
  • If your performance consists of several separate performances from individuals, the Abstracts/Artist’s Statement may be submitted in one of the two following ways:
    1. (preferred) Each participant submits a separate Artist’s Statement and indicates the amount of time needed for the performance (maximum 12 minutes). Please also indicate the overall performance group.
    2. One participant submits a single Artist’s Statement with all the performers listed. Please indicate in the Special Needs section of the submission form the total time needed for the performances.

Note: Musical Performances scheduled during the Opening Ceremony will be invited by members of the Music Department and Showcase Committee. These performances do not require the submission of an Abstract/Artist’s Statement through the online submission form.

Please arrive at your presentation room 10 minutes before the start of the session to check in with the moderator and facilitate setup.
