Completed Research Session
Each session is 90 minutes and is divided equally among each paper in the session. For example, in a session with 3 presenters each presenter has 30 minutes allotted. Authors should plan to present for 2/3 of their time (20 minutes) and use the remaining 1/3 of time (10 minutes) for questions.
Emergent Research Forum (ERF) Session
Each session is 90 minutes and is divided equally among each paper in the session. For example, in a session with 6 presenters each presenter has 15 minutes allotted. Authors should plan to present for 2/3 of their time (10 minutes) and use the remaining 1/3 of time (5 minutes) for questions.
Completed Research and ERF Sessions
The Session Chair is charged with ensuring presenters stay on time and maintaining professional dialogue among participants. The Chair is to introduce each presenter along with the paper. The Session Chair is required to bring a backup laptop or tablet that can connect to a projector for presenters to use, along with any necessary display adapters or arrange a suitable device to be brought by the authors in advance.
AVAILABLE AV EQUIPMENT:
Meetings rooms will have projectors and screens, but authors should bring their own laptop or tablet and adapter for their output port (HDMI, VGA, DisplayPort, etc.), or coordinate with their Session Chair to ensure that a laptop or tablet is available. Presenters should have their equipment ready 5 minutes prior to presentation. If, as a presenter, you are not the first presenter, please avoid coming late to the session; not all presenters will take exactly their allotted time and attendees may be left waiting for you.
Plan on using a digital presentation format like Microsoft Power Point. Other alternatives like Adobe’s PDF are also acceptable. Avoid reading text directly from your presentation slides. Ensure the content of your presentation will not exceed your allotted time.
