Instructions for Authors: Slack and your Q&A's

As an Author, please be aware that following your presentation there may be attendees anticipating answers to their questions within the Slack channel attached to your paper. Please make every effort to monitor that channel and to respond in a timely manner. 

Together - through author and attendee interactions - research can be advanced as information is exchanged. Thank you for your participation.

For more detailed instructions on how best to navigate within Slack, utilize the information available on the
