2017 PRESENTER AGREEMENT
If my paper is accepted, I agree to the following:
I agree to attend the 65th annual Utah State History Conference "Local Matters" on Wednesday, October 11, 2017, and to deliver my presentation in person, or find a substitute to present for me. Unless otherwise agreed to, I will attend the conference at my own expense.
I agree to register (at no charge) at https://heritage.utah.gov/history/2017conference and to check in at the registration desk upon my arrival. Registration will begin July 1, 2017.
I am submitting a 50-word biography, which may be published on the conference program and/or Utah State History’s website. In addition I am submitting a CV or professional resume.
I am submitting a 500-word proposal of my paper, which may be published on the conference program and/or Utah State History’s website.
If my session has a moderator or commenter, I agree to provide a copy of my paper or presentation by September 30, 2017, to firstname.lastname@example.org, which will be provided to the session’s assigned commenter and/or moderator.
State History will provide A/V equipment, including a PC laptop, LCD projector and screen for each presentation. Mac users must bring an adaptor for their particular laptop. If there is any additional type of A/V needed, State History must be notified of that need by September 12, 2017.
I agree to arrive at the assigned room of my presentation at least fifteen minutes prior to the beginning of my session to familiarize myself with the A/V equipment and room setup.
I agree to stay within my allotted time limit. I understand that if I go beyond my allotted minutes, I am taking time from other participants, the commentator, and the audience. Chairpersons and room captains in the concurrent sessions will strictly monitor the time and not allow speakers/presenters to continue once they have used their allotted time. A good rule of thumb is to allow one minute for every 150 words, or 2 to 2.5 minutes per printed page (double-spaced, 12 pt. type).
If State History arranges to record conference sessions I agree to have my session audio (or video) recorded. I give permission to State History, if it chooses, to produce electronic copies in whole or in part and in any media deemed fit for inclusion on the Utah State History website.
I give my permission for photos and video to be taken of me and/or my session during the conference. These images and my likeness, name and biographical information may be used for current and future conference publicity and marketing purposes.
If State History arranges, I am willing to be interviewed by the media and other sources prior to the conference.
In making my presentation, I recognize that I am not acting as an employee, agent or spokesperson for the Utah Division of State History, the Utah State Historical Society, or the State of Utah. I am also aware that State History is a state agency that relies on the support of the Utah legislature and the Office of the Governor. I hereby affirm that none of the material presented in my presentation infringes on any person's copyright or right of privacy, and further, I will not libel or slander any other person, facility, product, company, or service during my presentation. If such affirmation is breached, I will indemnify and hold harmless State History, its officers, board of directors, and members. I affirm that the work I shall present at the conference is based on defensible research and appropriate professional methodology with carefully referenced and cited works. I further agree that during my attendance at the conference, my conduct will conform to the highest standards of ethical and professional deportment and courtesy.
