  5. Note to Chairpersons of Concurrent Sessions
    The last primary presenter listed in each group in the concurrent session will be the chairperson for that session. Chairpersons play two important roles. Firstly, they ensure that everyone keeps to the allotted time strictly. Secondly, they facilitate active interaction and discussion among presenters and participants of the concurrent sessions.

    To play these two important roles, chairpersons are advised to do the following:

    1. Meet the presenters 10 minutes before the start of the concurrent session, and remind them to load their presentations onto the computer in the venue.

    2. Remind presenters of the timing. Each paper is allotted 20 minutes of presentation time followed by a 10-minute discussion guided by the chairperson.

    3. Keep timing to ensure that every paper has equal opportunity to be presented. You will be provided with three coloured cards with the words “5 minutes” (white), “2 minutes” (yellow) and “End” (pink) on them to provide presenters with a clear indication of the time left for presentation. Please also adhere to the time allotted for discussion and question-and-answer for each paper.

    4. Actively facilitate the discussion segments following each presentation by inviting questions and comments from participants. Please end the concurrent session with a few concluding remarks.
