SignWriting List
May 29, 2014

Hello Claudia and all presenters at the SignWriting Symposium -

Thank you for your thoughtful answer and of course you are correct about the Time Zones. The Europeans and Tunisians are from 6 to 10 hours ahead of the North, Central and South American Continent presenters, so the Europeans and Tunisians should probably grab the presentation time slots that are earlier in the day…I agree.

Fortunately, the Symposium will be streamed live on YouTube, and it will be saved on YouTube too, so people can always view a presentation from the day before, if they get sleepy.

Because the design of the Symposium web pages and archive are dependent upon the scheduling, I went ahead and setup a schedule, but you all need to choose your time slots.

The SignWriting Symposium is streaming live from 15:00 - 23:30 UTC/GMT (8:00 - 16:30 PDT) July 21-24, 2014.

NOW IT IS NECESSARY for all of you to tell me the exact time and day you wish to present by looking at the schedule and finding slots that are blank and open...

Please see a pasted schedule here in this email, or go to this web page, which is under construction, and then write back to tell us when you want to present - I look forward to hearing from you -

Each live presentation will last around 30 minutes, and take some questions from viewers either by voice, sign language video or texting of some kind. We will try to have interpreters if we can. We will direct the viewers to each presentation’s web page to learn more about the topic, and the 30 minute live presentation will be on YouTube and your web page too, so it will live on ;-)
