Instructions for Presenters and Session Chairs:

Talks in the regular technical sessions, Monday through Wednesday, are scheduled for 30 minutes. This includes 20 minutes of presentation and 10 minutes of questions. Late Breaking Paper (LBP) talks should take no more than 10 minutes total (7 minutes of presentation with 3 minutes of questions). Set-up of necessary presentation equipment should be calculated into the allotted presentation time.

The duties of session chairs are: Keep the session on schedule, introduce speakers, and moderate the question portion. Session chairs should arrive a few minutes early to check on room and equipment set-up. Please let conference organizers know immediately if problems arise or adjustments are needed. Please adhere to the scheduled order of talks as well as presentation times. If a speaker is absent, we ask you to announce a short break until the next presentation is due to start. Do not start early, as participants may be moving between sessions/presentations. Out of consideration for other speakers and all participants, please stay on schedule. If a session is without a chair, we ask the last scheduled speaker to perform those duties.

Special Note: Monday, GA Theory 1 and RWA Learning will be from 10:00 – 11:10, and GA Theory 2 and RWA Vision & Learning will be from 13:45 – 14:30 in the Sauganash Ballroom. Theses changes allow organizers set-up time for the Kluwer No Free Lunch lunch.
