*The senior editor stream: Sessions marked with an asterisk are aimed at mid-career and senior editors. These sessions have been designed for editors who have experience in the topic or the background to discuss a new topic at a higher level. Editors who have already mastered the fundamentals will find these sessions informative, challenging, and sure to incite some “a-ha” moments. Many of the senior editor sessions and panels are roundtables that will call for attendees to discuss the subject and contribute to the knowledge being shared, so practical knowledge is a definite asset.
†The bilingual stream: Sessions marked with a dagger are aimed at editors who have a working knowledge of both French and English. However, session attendees need not be perfectly fluent in both languages. All that is required is a basic oral understanding of both languages and an open mind. We hope these sessions will give both primarily anglophone and primarily francophone members a chance to meet and network with a wider pool of colleagues.
Rub shoulders with the experts by volunteering as an EAC 2014 Conference session host. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org by May 9 with a list of the sessions that you would like to host and we’ll set you up.
