Guidelines for Session chairs 

Paper Presentations

Session chairs are expected to lead the interactive discussion and also provide further constructive feedback on each of the papers.  The Chair will also introduce each presenter and assure the timing of the session. Because full papers are not available online (due to restrictions in the submission process of many journals), chairs are expected to email the authors in their session and obtain the papers in advance to prepare a commentary on each of the papers.

Chairs are expected to keep track of time in each session as follows:

  • 15 minutes presentation of your research
  • 5 minutes commentary from your session Chair and other presenters
  • 10 minutes interactive discussion with the participants to the session

Don't save any presentations on the computers (Windows 8.1) at the conference venue. The usage of own laptops for the presentation is not possible. Make sure to bring a USB (thumb drive).

 

Discussion Sessions

Session chairs are expected to provide further constructive feedback on the future development of each abstract and provide oversight of the ensuing session discussions of each abstract as well as manage the timing of the session.  During each discussion segment for each abstract, the Chair is expected to engage all presenters as well as the conference attendees present.

Because full papers are not available online (due to restrictions in the submission process of many journals), chairs are expected to email the authors in their session and obtain the papers in advance to prepare a commentary on each of the papers.

Email address of authors along with the abstract of each paper is available when you click on the paper title on the online program.
