In-Person Symposia Presenter Information

Presentation Times:

Invited presentations in symposia are allotted time slots by their organizer and typically range from 15 to 45 minutes in duration, which includes time for questions. Symposia organizers and session moderators are instructed to enforce the time limit and the moderator will stop a presenter who exceeds their total time limit. Please time your presentation accordingly to avoid this embarrassing situation.

In-Person 10-minute Paper Presenter Information


The Program Committee works diligently to group presentations in sessions along similar topics and themes and to resolve as many scheduling conflicts as possible. While the Committee does their best to take all of these factors into account, a perfect fit is not always possible. The size of each session is dependent upon the initial number of papers submitted to each topic area.
