Information for Chairs of Parallel Sessions

  • The Session Chair should be in their session's room about 10 minutes prior to the start of the session to ensure that all presentations are uploaded onto the PC / laptop.
  • The main responsibility of a Session Chair is to ensure the smooth running of the session, keep time and oversee the discussion following the paper presentation.
  • The Chair will decide, in consultation with the presenters, if the discussions will proceed after each paper presentation or at the end of all paper presentations.
  • As a rough guideline, Session Chairs may consider allowing around 60% of the session time for presentations and 40% for discussion.

Information for Speakers and Presenters

  • Each room will be equipped with either a PC or a laptop with Microsoft Office Suite programmes such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint version 2013, a data projector and screen.
  • Delegates using Mac laptops need to bring with them an adaptor from either Mac to VGA or from Mac to HDMI.
  • We would encourage you to bring your presentation on a USB stick which should then be loaded into the room’s PC/laptop prior to your session.
  • Presentations should last no more than 20 minutes to allow sufficient time for discussions and Q&As (the exact time depends on the number of papers in the session – consult Session Chair).
