Arrive at least five minutes prior to the start of the session. Delay in attending the session means your presentation will be skipped and may not get another chance for presenting your work. So please make sure you are on time. Contact the session moderator or member of the secretariat for further support.

The session chair/moderator will decide on the nature of the Q&A during parallel sessions. This will be informed by the session chair prior to the start of the presentations.
