Professional Courtesy

NCUR offers an opportunity for participants to observe, learn and practice professional etiquette common to all disciplines. Presenters should remain in the room until all presentations in their sessions are complete. The other presentations may offer new insights, and all presenters deserve the same audience and respect. Spectators to sessions should enter and exit oral and performing arts session rooms between (not during) presentations.
