TIN 2012 Program

That time has come. Registration has closed, and the finalized program for the conference is ready!

Feel free to use this for now, but keep in mind that you will receive the full program (with all its gloss) when you register at the conference, along with your bag of swag! Obviously though, if someone falls ill, drops out at the last minute, and so on, your panel may change slightly.

Some of your panels will only be two presenters, so you will have more time for questions only, not for presentations. You will still need to keep yours to 20 minutes so get practicing in front of family, friends, colleagues, strangers on the bus - anyone to help you get your timing down. No one likes being cut-off, especially when you are sharing important research.

If you have any questions, send 'em to Gillian!

ready, set, go!

That's that! Registration is closed and the elite students that were chosen to participate in the 2012 TIN conference have gotten themselves signed up for an amazing experience. In all, we will have 48 students presenting at this year's conference, from Canada, the United States, Mexico, Australia, Norway, Ukraine, The Netherlands, and New Zealand. Exciting!

The tentative program will be posted next week, which will let our presenters know when they will be sharing their research with their colleagues, as well as the social events of the conference. We have a team of ten volunteers to make sure that your conference is an amazing experience, as well as a bunch of extra fun things to do.

As a taste, check out the Art Gallery of Alberta's current exhibitions - TIN presenters will be given a private tour of the gallery and the current exhibitions!

We at KIAS are looking forward to meeting all of you. You are joining a great group of students as TIN Alumni.
