Registration

Please sign in with NYU security inside the entrance to 20 Cooper Square. The conference organizers will provide NYU with a list of expected conference attendees. The registration desk will be located on the 7th floor. You may encounter signs in the elevator that say that the 7th floor is inaccessible, but you can ignore these; NYU has assured us that the elevators will stop on 7. If not, proceed to the 6th floor and take the stairs one flight up to registration. Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. There is no pre- registration. The cost is $50, payable in cash or check. Checks should be made payable to Loyola University (include “Journalism Conference” in the memo).

Presentation technology

Each of the presentation rooms will be equipped with a Macintosh computer that can run PowerPoint and Keynote presentations and will have Internet access. You may also bring your own computer to attach to the projector. Please note that the rooms are seminar-style rooms, with no front lectern, and the presentation computers are along a side wall. You may want to be prepared to ask a volunteer to advance your slides. A small number of remote controls will be provided by the conference organizers.

Social networking and media

For the fifth consecutive year, media and communication students from St. John Fisher College in Rochester, NY, will coordinate media for the JJCHC. They will be capturing events and tweeting live from the conference — #jjchc. If you’re a grad student hitting the job market, a junior faculty coming up for tenure, or a senior faculty looking for a promotion and would like your presentation recorded, please get in touch with Todd Sodano, a professor at St. John Fisher College, who will discuss possibilities with you and his production crew. His email is tsodano@sjfc.edu. His students will be sure to remain unobtrusive as they collect elements throughout the day.
