SignWriting List
June 6, 2015

Dear Presenters at the SW Symposium 2015 -

Thank you for the abstracts I have already received.

I will start working on your web pages for the Symposium presentations when I receive your abstracts. Take a look at this web page to see an example of how the Symposium web pages look…

SignWriting Symposium 2014
Presentation by Claudia Bianchini
http://www.signwriting.org/symposium/presentation0001.html <http://www.signwriting.org/symposium/presentation0001.html>

As you can see, if you click on “Authors” on the above web page, it takes you to the biographies and photos of the presenters.

So, if you are a first-time presenter at the Symposium, I will need your biography and photos, as well as your Abstracts. If you presented in 2014, then I already have your bio and photos, unless you wish to update them, and if so, no problem - Just send me the updated files.

Also, if you wish to have a bi-lingual posting of your abstract and bio in your native language and also in English, you are welcome to send me the files in one language, or both, or I can arrange for the English translation…it is all good...

This is so much fun to be in touch with so many talented people -

Look forward to hearing from you - 

Val ;-)
