What is the policy with proceedings? If I would like to provide handouts to those attending my session - will OASIS handle production?

OASIS will not be able to accommodate specific session handouts, however, we will be providing each attendee with an on-site booklet and access to the online slide presentations. As long as all the information is current, speakers shouldn't need to provide individual handouts. If you choose to provide a handout, you may do so on your own. An estimated number of attendees may be provided upon request - see the OASIS Manager of Events - Jane Harnad. Please note that the Program Committee will need to review all handouts in advance - including those that you will be printing on your own. All handouts must be received by the date designated in your formal speaker confirmation letter.
