How can I best prepare myself for the conference?
There will be a paper that comes out for each table describing the focus of the table. The best way to prepare is to read this paper and determine what the focus will be and do some focused research on the ideas brought up in the paper and begin to think about what is in the paper. What do you agree with, what do you disagree with, what do you think a good solution to the issues discussed would be, etc. Talking to a faculty advisor in your school about the topics addressed in the paper is not required but would only make you better prepared.
Will I be able to connect to the internet during the conference?
Yes, there will be a WiFi connection in select buildings, including the ones in which table session will be held.
