Attention session and panel chairs:  Please check your session on the Virtual ACE program website ASAP. On the left, select the Technical Program and browse by on-demand session. Type in the session name in the search box and all the papers in that session will show. From that listing, you can drill down to each paper's primary author/presenter to get (screen capture or print) their photo and bio, assuming they have uploaded it in Harvester. For any missing items, please contact the author (via Harvester in the Reviewer page or directly if you have their email address) and request the missing information for your use as the Chair, but also encourage them to upload it – an important task to be completed by presenters (and Chairs/Co-Chairs as well) since what they enter in Harvester is what is shown on the program listing webpage. If you need a specific email address, send a request with the person’s name and Submission ID to Lisa Moses at and she can look it up on the Harvester system.

Presenter Registration 
Presenters do need to register. A&WMA’s meeting registration policy is based on the premise that participation in A&WMA conferences is an enriching opportunity and is beneficial to the individual’s company/institution, as it provides individual and company/institution exposure as well as personal professional development opportunities.  All participants, including speakers/presenters/panelists/session chairs/poster presenters (both invited or accepted through the call for abstracts), are expected to register and pay the appropriate registration fee.
