The GA Committee has received a few questions with respect to the Paper Sessions. Below are answers to the common questions. Question: May I assume that Saturday, June 30 is the date of the talk? Answer: The Paper presentations will be occurring at the same time as the Poster presentations on Saturday June 20th between 10am and 4pm MDT. Here is the link to the information page on the website: https://rascga2018.ca/schedule/paper-poster-presentations/ Question: Where is the paper to be given? Is it the Red & White Club? Answer: Yes, the paper presentations will be given at the Red & White club. Question: I plan to bring my convertible tablet/laptop as a backup in case it is needed --- if it can be connected to the projector. Is that possible? Answer: The speaker can bring their laptop but the GA Committee will be using a single laptop pre-loaded with all presentations to confirm compatibility. Hence the need for presentations to be made available in advance for testing. Question: Will there be a registration desk at the beginning of the meeting where one can pick up name tags? Do you happen to know when and where that desk will be open? Answer: Yes, all speakers will need to pickup their respective name tags at the registration desk. The hours for the registration desk are as follows:
- Thursday June 28th: 13:00-17:00 hours MDT at Hotel Alma
- Friday June 29th: 08:00-20:00 hours MDT at the Red & White Club
- Saturday June 30th: 08:00-1200 hours MDT at the Red & White Club
