Information for Presenters and Moderators


  • Paper sessions are 90 minutes.
  • Most sessions have 4 presenters but some have 3.
  • Presentations should be at maximum 20 minutes unless otherwise discussed with moderator.
  • Moderators will arrange for a laptop to be present. We also recommend that presenters bring their own laptops in case of computer issues.


  • Primary responsibility is to help facilitate the presentations.
  • Bring a laptop or arrange (with presenters) for a laptop to be present.
  • Decide on an appropriate format (e.g., questions after each presentation and/or discussion at end.)
  • Given format, help presenters keep presentations to the allotted time: e.g., 15-20 minutes.
  • Facilitate discussion as time allows.
