Information has been sent to presenters

We have sent out the presenter information for OER14. Please let us know if there is anything else that you need, if you are bringing a presentation, workshop, poster or fringe. We are in the process of finalising print. See the recently uploaded gallery of images of the venue for details of the equipment available in rooms. Presenters are asked to please use the equipment provided, so that we can record the presentations. Technical support staff (Toby, Joel and Sophie) have agreed to help with anything you may need. If you want to use your own equipment for your presentation please let us know, as we would like to video it (if it is not possible to use lecture capture). 

An artist, Ellie Livermore, will be in residence in the Mezzanine area.

Unfortunately the toys showing in this pic are not part of our package! But there will be a lot taking place, including posters, fringe, exhibition and a drinks reception prior to the Gala dinner. 

Updated list of keynotes and panel members

We are awaiting details of one other keynote, representing the NUS, otherwise the list of confirmed keynotes and panel members now appears here:

Thanks to everyone who has agreed to speak, and all the authors who hit the deadline for papers for possible inclusion in JIME. These are being circulated to the Scientific/Programme Committee today with a view to starting to shortlist the best, according to the most promising theme. 

Reviewing is under way

This is weird I can refresh my browser and see the review status for abstracts being updated in real time. Here you see the traffic light – red (not started) amber (in draft) and green (finished). There are three reviews per abstract. All review comments will be fed back to authors.
