Session Chair Guidelines
Session chairs are selected by the Program Committee. Their responsibilities include:
- Maintaining session timings! This is the most important function of a session chair. There is a light system at each table, but you may be required to politely interrupt the speaker if they go over time.
- Introducing speakers and presentation titles.
- Facilitating questions and discussion with in-person and virtual attendees.
- Checking in at the speaker ready room the day before the session you are chairing..
