Presenters’ Guidelines

Conference Rooms

All conference rooms are equipped with a notebook with USB ports, Microsoft Office, Adobe Acrobat Reader, and a projector. Note for presenters: Please use these notebooks for your presentations and bring along your slides on a USB memory device. Please arrive 10 minutes prior to the start of the session to upload your presentation to the notebook before the session starts.


To ensure the smooth proceeding of the Conference, please start and finish the sessions on time. The chair and the speaker should agree on the precise format of the discussion: that is whether it covers the session as a whole or comes following each paper.

Session Chairs

Chairs are invited to come to the room 10 minutes prior to the start of the session. They introduce the topic and the speakers, make sure that the time rules are followed and guide the general discussion following the presentation. They should also coordinate with the speakers and agree on the form and precise timing of the discussion. The conference programme identifies the chairs for each session: In case the scheduled chair does not show up, the presenter of the session’s last paper is expected to take over the role of the chair.
