Instructions for Session Chairs

Session co-chairs are asked to collect their packs from the support representative in the session room before their session. To ensure a smooth running of the conference, session co-chairs are kindly asked to strictly respect the schedule.

An evaluation form should be completed for each session by the session co-chairs and left with the support representative.

All rooms will be equipped with a computer, a video projector and a screen. Presentations must be downloaded to the computer before the session starts. Authors have been asked to meet session co-chairs at the session room a few minutes before the beginning of the session and to provide them with their presentations (in MS Powerpoint or PDF) and short printed biographies (50 words maximum).

The length of oral presentations is restricted to 20 minutes, including questions. The authors are strongly advised to keep their oral presentation within 15 minutes and to leave 5 minutes for discussion with the audience and allow a change of speaker. Session co-chairs are kindly asked to closely monitor the timing against the schedule. In case of "no show", the session must be either suspended until the time the next paper is scheduled or closed if there are no more papers in the session.
