Presenters and Moderators

All Selected Paper sessions and some Organized Symposia are fully joint with the WAEA.

Registration and Membership Requirements

All presenters, discussants, panelists and moderators must be members and registered for the Annual Meeting no later than April 30 to remain in the program.

Presenters

  • 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.
  • Presenters are strongly encouraged to arrive 10 minutes before their sessions start to upload the presentation files.

Moderators

  • 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.

Audio/Visual Equipment

Each presentation room will be equipped with an LCD projector, screen, and microphone. Overhead projectors and laptop computers are not provided. Moderators will arrange for a laptop to be present. However, presenters should bring their own laptops in case of computer issues.
