Are pre-registered panel applicants more likely to be selected than those not yet registered?

Yes, if you pre-reg ahead of time you are more likely to have your panel accepted when I am filling holes in the schedule.

If we've preregistered since submitting the panel application, how can we update you on our status?

Just send me an email with the subject, 'Now registered.' I won't respond but I will change it in my database. :)

You can email me or any AB staff department here.

Hi there, I received a confirmation e-mail about my panel being scheduled on Friday night from 10:30PM to midnight, but in our panel application we had noted that we were completely unavailable on Friday. Is there some way to have this rectified?

Yes, please email me with the name of the panel and time/day it is on. I have other panelists looking to swap times.

Good Morning!
I was wondering what the room capacity was for Hynes Panel A? I include handouts with my panel so I'm trying to decide how many to order.
Thanks!

Hello!

What's the process for looking to switch times if possible? I have emailed the panel email with questions before and haven't heard back, so I'm not sure if there's a better method.

Also, we have an update description to add to our panel.

Thanks!

The Hynes Panel A room has a room capacity of roughly 700 people.

Email is the best method for me right now, I do have a lot of emails to go though. If I have not responded to you between 24-48 hours email me again with your new description and panel switching request. Right now I have more Friday slots open then Sat or Sun for panel switching.

Hi Kate,

Can I get the room capacity for panel room 309 as well? Was thinking of a handout for my Indie Music panel and wanted to get an idea on how many copies I'd need. Thanks!

A handy thing for all of you panel hosts, as it shows room sizes and also contains a map.

As great as that is, the cap numbers are calculated without visual/audio set up. So they will be a little higher then the actual capacity.

Are panel capacity numbers something that would be helpful to panelists?

Yeah, speaking as someone who generally does at least 1 panel with handouts per year, I think they'd be helpful so we get a general idea how many to bring. Seems like at least a few other panelists use them as well. Thanks for the answer!

Will any of the rooms have HDMI in terms of hooking up a laptop to the projector? I bought two adaptors just in case but I was wondering if I will actually need to use them.
