2011 Sessions and Schedule

Conference Sessions

Full conference session descriptions and commenting areas are HERE

For presenters:  if your session shows as having been accepted but you did not receive the acceptance email, a copy of the email is here and you should be sure to book a presentation time. Sessions that are not yet accepted, are on the waiting list, or have been sent back to the presenter for review are here.

Session in the calendar schedules below will have the session room links added a day or two before the conference.


Webinar Platform

The conference sessions are being held in Blackboard Collaborate (formerly Elluminate), and can be accessed live from any personal computer. (All sessions will also be recorded and posted quickly after the conference.) All sessions are free to attend, and the links to the sessions will go live in the schedule when the conference starts.

To check that your computer is ready for Blackboard Collaborate, please click here. "Step 1" will indicate if you have a version of Java that is compatible, and then "Step 2" lets you actually go into a test session. We encourage you to do this in advance of the conference. If you have any difficulties, you can ask for help in the user community.


Conference Schedule

The links below are to Google calendar listings of the conference sessions in each of the world's time zones, specifically for the dates of November 14 - 18. You can use the link at the bottom of any of the individual calendar pages to bring the events into Google Calendar if you use it.

Each of the scheduled sessions will have their live session link added to them a day or two before the conference begins.

DST = Daylight Savings Time. Although we have tried to make all times accurate, please double check to make sure the time clock on your time zone page matches your current time, unless you are in DST now and will not be during the conference, as there are countries that make a Daylight Savings Switch between now and the start of the conference, so the time zones below are specific to November 14 - 18.


Compare your time to Grenwich Mean Time (GMT) to determine your viewing time zone. The current GMT time and date are:
