Why are you hosting the Winter Institute virtually rather than in-person?
Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 and for the safety of all attendees and students, we determined it was best to host a virtual Winter Institute via Zoom rather than canceling.
Who can attend the Winter Institute?
The conference is geared towards graduate students and faculty both local and international. Undergraduates and ASU staff are more than welcome to attend as well. The goal of the Winter Institute is to provide a forum for scholars to receive feedback on their work in progress papers.
Do I have to register to attend?
Yes, registration is required in order to receive your personal link via email to join the webinar. This also allows us to have an accurate headcount for an improved attendee experience at this and future events.
Do I need to download Zoom?
The web browser client will download automatically when you start or join your first Zoom meeting, and is also available for manual download here.
For more information about Zoom and system requirements, you can visit the Zoom Help Center.
Do I need an account to use Zoom?
You do not have to have a Zoom account to attend a Zoom meeting or webinar. You will be prompted to download the software, once you have clicked on the link that you have been provided via email after registering to attend the Winter Institute. You may also wish to create an account, but that is not required to participate in a Zoom meeting.
Will the papers being presented at the sessions be available before the conference starts?
Yes, papers by the presenters will be distributed prior to the conference start so attendees have an opportunity to read and get familiar with the topic prior to the sessions. This way our presenters get adequate feedback on their work in progress.
Are there sponsorship opportunities?
Yes, please email CSELConference@asu.edu.
I have more questions!
For any additional questions, email CSELConference@asu.edu.
