Hello ValAm I the only one to answer?I think that the best solution is to go thematic but with a little arrangement due to time-gap.To make 10 presentation or 30min per day we need minimum 5 hour (+1h to eat)...And... when in LaJolla is 6am in Rome is 3pm; when in LaJolla is 2pm in Rome in 1am.So, to avoid Europeans to stay awaken till 3 in the morning, and to avoir Americans to get up at 5 in the morning we can scredule the presentations like this...1) July 21-22 - Educationfrom 6am to 11am (California time) = from 3pm to 8pm (Rome time) : Europeans presentationsfrom 11am to 4pm (California time) = from 8pm to 1am (Rome time) : Americans presentations2) July 22 - Literature
from 6am to 11am (California time) = from 3pm to 8pm (Rome time) : Europeans presentationsfrom 11am to 4pm (California time) = from 8pm to 1am (Rome time) : Americans presentations3) July 23 - Research
from 6am to 11am (California time) = from 3pm to 8pm (Rome time) : Europeans presentationsfrom 11am to 4pm (California time) = from 8pm to 1am (Rome time) : Americans presentations4) July 24 - Software
from 6am to 11am (california time) = from 3pm to 8pm (Rome time) : Europeans presentationsfrom 11am to 4pm (california time) = from 8pm to 1am (Rome time) : Americans presentationsSo if americans want to sleep in the morning they will only lose the 2 or 3 first european presentation, and if the europeans need to go to bed at 11pm they will only loose 2 or 3 american presentations...What do you think about this?ClaudiaClaudia S.

Hello SignWriting List!
I need your opinions - read below -
I am delighted to tell you that we have 40 presentations…39 definite and 1 more perhaps… I will be closing the number at 40, so if there is someone who wants to present and has not submitted your Title write to me…there is still a chance.
So let us start talking about the date and time your presentations will be streamed live online…
Streaming 10 presentations a day, for four days, from July 21-24, 2014, will be amazing. 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 ;-)
One way to schedule this (and I would like your opinion), is to group the presentations by time zone and location of the presenters, to make it possible for presenters to present during their daytime hours… so this would mean a schedule like this:
July 21 - 23 North, Central America, South America
July 24 - Europe & Africa
Kind of crazy - huh?
The other way to do the schedule is to group it by subject:
July 21-22 - Education
July 22 - Literature
July 23 - Research
July 24 - Software
and do it the same time each day and presenters will have to stay up at night to present in some cases -
Have any of you had this experience before? I once stayed up to 3:00 in the morning to present in Tunisia in a conference, on Skype, and it was fine with me…but I was tired too...
So please write to tell me your thoughts about streaming 40 presentations online live - should we schedule it by time zone?
