Please take a moment to read the guidelines below.

General information

Please check the program for the day and time of your session. The details of the session are available from the congress website: www.wcbipwcbe2016.org.

  • Chairs: all chairs are asked to be in their session room no later than 10 minutes prior to the session.

    Remind the Speakers to respect the time limit (the timing is indicated below and for each talk, we recommend to keep about 1/3 of the time for questions and answers). Use the limit timer on your table to make sure the Speaker does not exceed the allocated time.
    If a Speaker is not present, you can use the additional time for interactive discussion with the audience. Should any speaker be absent, please check with a staff member before cancelling the presentation. If the absence is confirmed, please fill this time by extending the speaking time of the other presenters and allow more time for discussion with the floor.

    Chairs should allow a short period of direct questioning after each presentation or at the end of the session but may use their discretion as to whether to have more general discussion after both presentations are completed, in order to exploit any complementarities or contrasts between them.

    Close the session with a few salient remarks about how the session has contributed to the conference theme. Please thank speakers and announce the next session.

  • Speakers: all speakers are requested to come to the Slide Center Room at least 3 hours in advance of their presentations to verify if the data functions properly on the equipment provided.

    Please keep presentations to the allotted time to permit questions and discussion with the floor. Chairs may cut short presentations that exceed the specified time.
