Before Your Session

1Check the Program

2Read the Presentation Guidelines
Please read the ‘Presentation Guidelines’ to avoid any communication gap.
3Study your Session
Kindly try to have an idea of all the presentations in the session that you are chairing. You can read the submitted abstracts on the ‘Daily program’ page by clicking the abstract number (eg. Free paper: A-001, Invited Paper: IA-001). Please prepare for meaningful discussions, such as by bringing up questions designed to facilitate discussions in the event that no questions asked (within the allotted time).
4Arrive Early
If possible, arrive at the meeting room about 15 minutes prior to the start of the session and familiarize yourself with A-V equipment and printed materials. Printed abstracts for your session will be prepared on the session chairs’ desk. If you are chairing the Invited Session, printed CVs for the speakers will be ready with their abstracts. If you encounter problems, immediately alert the Staff in your session room.

During Your Session

Briefly, introduce yourself and welcome the participants to your session. Announce that you shall be chairing the session. Remind and request to the speakers and the audience to adhere to the guidelines. There is no need to explain these guidelines in detail since they are already given to them.
2Start on Time & Introduce Presenter
A timer-monitor will be provided in each room. Start the session on time and introduce each presenter before each presentation. Alternatively, if you prefer you may introduce them all at the start and let them come to the podium in turn.
3Allotted Times

The normal allotted time for free papers is 7 minutes followed by 3 minutes of brief question & answer session. The total time is 10 minutes maximum for each presentation. Please be aware of the different times allocated for each and set the timer as follows:

4Timing Speakers

Speakers must be asked to stop when their allotted time is up in a courteous but firm manner. Keep in mind that the session must end on time, and that the last speaker has just as much right to an audience as does the first speaker.

Any time used by speakers and/or technicians to set up laptops or any other equipment is deducted from the speaker's total time allotment. Time the speaker from the moment he or she comes to the front, not when he or she begins speaking.
5Absent Speakers
When a speaker fail to appear, please call one of co-authors of the abstracts in order. If none of co-authors are in attendance, please move to the next presentation. At the end of the session, call again for the missed abstract, if time allows.
