In this page you can find guidelines to setup Tracks, Papers, Posters and Demos during the conference.
On Session Day
- Setting up. We recommend you to arrive at least 15 minutes before your session to meet the room coordinator and each presenter. This will also give you an opportunity to familiarize yourself with the room and AV set up. The room coordinator is there to assist you with any last minute changes and to ensure the session runs smoothly. For those chairing plenary sessions there will be an AV tech to assist presenters. The parallel sessions have no 'in room' technicians.
- Maintaining the schedule. As you can see from the schedule, we have shorter (i.e., 60 minute) and longer (i.e., 90 minute) blocks for sessions. We rely on you to make sure that sessions stay within time, and also that the allotted time for presentations are provided to all presenters. We ask that you remind presenters of these constraints at the opening of each session that you chair:
- for short papers, we are asking authors to keep their presentations to 10 minutes, plus five to seven minutes maximum for questions.
- for full papers, we are asking authors to keep their presentations to 20 minutes, plus five to seven minutes maximum for questions.
For example, a long session that consists solely of full papers would have three submissions assigned to it. With time given to changing between speakers, delays, extra questions, etc., this should work out to be at most 90 minutes.
- Please also note that many of the sessions are followed immediately by other sessions. We ask you to make sure that this scheduling policy is followed strictly.
Session Chair Responsibilities
- Ensure that presenters are authors/co-authors of the paper(s) being presented.
- Introduce the speakers and provide session introduction. Please keep your introductions to one or two minutes as session time is limited.
- Time control of each presentation.
- Manage flow and time for the Q&A period(s).
- Provide or encourage questions that will keep speakers and audience members engaged.
- Thank speakers after the session concludes.
- Duration of oral presentations – The duration for presentations of full papers is 20 minutes plus 5 minutes of questions. For short papers, it is 10 minutes plus 5 minutes of questions. As we are on a very tight schedule, we ask that you to keep within these limits. We have also asked the Track Chair(s) to manage the presentation time carefully.
- Equipment – The following equipment is available in all session rooms:
- WiFi Connectivity
- Video Projector
- Important note: PCs or laptop are not standard equipment in the room. Please make sure that you coordinate with your Track Chair(s) whether to use only one computer and preload all the presentations before the session starts or to allow individual presenters to plug their own devices to the in-room video projector. The video-projector receives a VGA cable. If you are going to use your own laptop/tablet, please make sure that you have the corresponding adapter.
- Session management – All sessions are chaired according to the Program. Your Track Chair(s) will provide guidelines about how the session is going to be run, the Q&A period, and how time is going to be controlled.
- Recommendations – please confirm with your Track Chair(s) the assigned room for the session and make sure that you arrive at least fifteen minutes before the start of the session to introduce yourself to the track/session chair, if you have not done so already.
- There is no AV tech support during the sessions.
Poster Content Guide
- Academic posters generally include: title, investigator(s), abstract, purpose, question(s), hypotheses, description of data/sample, methodology (i.e., design, instruments, procedures), results, conclusions, implications for further research and key references
- The verbal and visual information communicate the major points of the project.
- Information is well-organized with a logical flow from project question to conclusion(s) and implication(s) for further research. Poster panels represent a summary of the relevant information the presenter wants to convey
