As we want to encourage discussion, we ask you to keep to the allotted time. As they are, in some days, 2 parallel presentations, Session Chairs will strictly enforce timing.
Chairpersons are asked to be seated not later than 5 minutes before their session starts. We ask the chairpersons to ensure that all presentations start and finish punctually as scheduled. The conference staff will assist with timing.
