Guidelines for Concurrent Sessions 
  • Paper panels are 70 minutes long. Do not wait for the room to be crowded, start promptly.
  • Reserve the last 10 minutes for the moderator to lead a question and answer session.
  • Panelists have 12-15 minutes depending on the size of the panel. Panels with 5 panelists have 12 minutes per presenter and panels with 4 panelists have 15 minutes per presenter.
  • Presenters should practice in advance to ensure they can finish their presentations in the time allotted as it is unfair to other panelists to run over the allotted time.
  • Moderators will have 5 minute and 2 minute warning signs for presenters.
  • Equipment will be available for PowerPoint presentations. Presenters should bring their work on a flash drive and arrive a few minutes before the session begins to save their work on the desktop of the computer.
  • Reading of papers is not acceptable.
  • Moderators should introduce each presenter and the title of their work, should keep time and stop presenters when their time has ended, and should lead the question and answer session.
  • If your moderator fails to arrive, the first presenter should assume this role.
  • Do not re-order the sequence of presentations as they are listed in the program because conference guests may plan their attendance based on the order in the program
Audio-Visual Equipment
  • Each session room will be equipped with a laptop, an LCD computer projector, and a screen.
