Conference Program

The conference program will be available by October 2018.

Conference Sessions

I will need speakers for my presentation. How do I order these?

We cannot provide speakers for individual conference sessions, so you should plan to bring your own. We will have A/V assistance on site to help you troubleshoot any issues with projecting sound. There will be an LCD projector in each session room.

Final Submissions

Why does my submission type say “Poster” or “Brief Research Report” if I submitted my proposal as a Full Research Report?

All Academic does not differentiate between submission type and accepted type. If your proposal was accepted in an alternate format, your submission type will be the alternate format. You should prepare your final paper according to the guidelines for the submission type that is reported in the system currently, not the submission type you indicated when submitting the proposal.

Printing Posters
The maximum poster size is 48 inches wide and 36 inches high. Printing fabric posters has become popular over the last few years (and they pack nicely in a suitcase). Here is one tutorial for doing this relatively cheaply. Other poster printing sites also offer this option for additional costs.

Visas (Information for those traveling from outside of the U.S.A.)

If you are coming from outside the U.S., remember to get a visa, if necessary! To allow enough time for your visa request to be processed by your country of origin, we recommend you check the U.S. Government’s web site regarding visas.

If you are concerned about obtaining visa status for entry to the U.S. before registering, please contact Andy Tyminski, [email protected].


I am not staying at or near the Hyatt Regency. Is there a shuttle that can drive me to the hotel for the conference?

No, however, the other downtown hotels are easily within walking distance from the Hyatt. There are also cabs and Uber available in Greenville.

How should I get to the Hyatt Regency from the Airport?

Please see our Travel tab on this site for links to these services.
