AcademicExperts.org will function as your Conference Navigator to:
- plan your session schedule
- view all papers and uploaded PPTs

- view pre-recorded virtual presentations
- connect with and message fellow participants
- create or update your personal profile

Accessing Zoom Meeting Rooms
In order to protect the privacy of our attendees and the integrity of the organization, **new links to Zoom meeting rooms will be provided each day of the conference for registrants only through the AcademicExperts schedule**. This is another security measure we are taking to protect our attendees.
If a meeting room is streamed, URLs will only be provided to EdMedia registrants on AcademicExperts.org. Sharing URLs is strictly forbidden, as this will compromise the security of the EdMedia conference and our participants.
How to Find SIG Meetings in Academic Experts:
F2F Presenter Guidelines
Conference Presiders/Session Chairs are essential to ensuring that the paper presentations progress smoothly. Each presenter is requested to volunteer for one session as a Presider. Invitations will be sent to confirmed presenters. The conference very much appreciates your contribution to the conference.
We ask that presenters be aware of the following during their presentation to maintain a great day! For more specific details on your presentation type, visit the Presenter Guidelines page.
- Maintaining the Schedule: Each presenter must begin and finish their presentations on the posted time. Maintaining the presentation schedule within the session hour helps to fairly ensure that all presenters receive their allocated time. The presider has the authority to stop a session that has run overtime and is requested to report overages to the Registration desk staff.
- Full Papers are scheduled 2 to an hour, and each presenter should present for 25 minutes only – this includes time for questions and equipment changeover.
- Example hour for Full Papers:
- Example hour for Full Papers:
- For Brief Papers, each presenter has 15 minutes including questions.
- Example hour for Brief Papers:
- Example hour for Brief Papers:
- No Shows: In instances where a presenter, who is not last in the hour, is not present or has cancelled, please wait to begin the next paper until the scheduled time, so that all who planned to attend the remaining paper(s) can.
- Technical: Prior to each session, a technical support person will connect all of the equipment for the presenters. Presenters should refrain from connecting or moving equipment themselves, as each room is scheduled for particular equipment and uses. If the presenter has a technical problem that they cannot resolve, please contact either a conference technical person near the meeting room or the Registration desk for assistance.
