Instructions for Session Chairs/Co-Chairs

The duties of the chair and co-chair are to be present during the whole session, to introduce and thank the speakers, to allow short questions and answers after each presentation, and to keep the session on schedule.
In some cases, chairs and co-chairs were selected among the authors of the papers presented during the session. This means that the chair and co-chair of a session should change roles when necessary to avoid chairing their own papers.

Oral presentations:
Please notice that each paper is allotted 15 minutes, i.e. 12 minutes for presentation and 3 minutes for discussions.
In case of no-show papers, please use the slot for discussion and/or presentation of additional materials to papers previously presented (e.g. more Q&A, more detailed answers to questions previously posed by the audience, additional slides or videos, etc). Changing the program schedule is NOT an option.
