Presentations Format

General Session - Presentations

- Each session is 90 minutes and is divided equally among each paper in the session. Therefore, a session with three papers would have 30 minutes per paper. Authors should plan to present for approximately 2/3 of their allotted time to allow time for questions and answers.

- Meeting rooms will have projectors and screens. There will be no internet access. There are no computers in the room either.

 

General Session - Session Chairs

- The session chair should open and close the general session on time

- Introduce the session and be prepared to introduce the authors and papers within the session.

Therefore, a session with three papers would have 30 minutes per paper. Authors should plan to present for approximately 2/3 of their allotted time to allow time for questions and answers.

- There are no laptops in the room, so plan to bring a laptop so presenters are able to present their work. If a session chair does not have a laptop, coordinate with the authors PRIOR TO the start of the session to ensure that there is a laptop available for the session.
