Additional GSCC 2023 Information
Presentation will begin on 9:00 AM March 6th at the Conclave Venue Room 312. A tentative two-part structure of the presentation is:
- Presentation of a concept or study results (5-10 minutes).
- Group interactive discussion (20-25 minutes):
- What can we learn from this research?
- How does this research expand our understanding of strategic communication and foster innovative approaches?
- How does this research inform future research in the field? What are possible directions?
These two parts will hopefully be within a 30-minute duration. The GSCC is dedicated to promote more interactions and discussions, while also ensuring a reasonable amount of presentation time for the speaker. We believe in this way there can be real communication between the presenter and discussants about an idea, concept, case or other findings. We STRONGLY discourage the use of PowerPoint in Concept Talks and In-Progress-Research. We realize data visualization may be needed in Completed Paper sessions, but we ask that you keep PowerPoint brief: to a maximum of 3 slides, to encourage the dynamic and robust discussion we seek to foster among thought leaders attending the GSCC Conclave. Thank you.
