Information for Session Moderators

  1. Identify the number of presentations for your session and allotted time
  2. Introduce speakers and presentations including: the speaker’s name, affiliation, presentation title.
  • Example:We have X numbers of presentations in this session on [name of session]. First up is [name of presenter(s)], from [affiliation] presenting on [title of paper].
  1. Monitor time of presentations. Presentation time limits:
  • All papers = 20 minutes (15-minute presentation + 5-minute Q&A)
  • Provide the presenter with a 3 & 0-minute notification (Signage Provided).
  • Set your phone timer/alarm for 15 minutes so the alarm goes off loudly after 15 minutes.
  • When the presenter’s time has lapsed, hold up the “TIME” card (signage provided).
  • Please note, if a presenter goes over time with the presentation, their Q&A period will be shortened to a maximum of 20 minutes. If a presentation is less than 15 minutes, the presenter still has the full 20 minutes which can be used for a longer Q&A.
  1. Thank speakers & audience
  • At the end of each session, please thank all of the presenters and announce the length of the break and what time people should return for the next session. (See Schedule).
  • If there are any technical difficulties, please contact the Registration desk.
