					                                  Important Information
Audio-Visuals: Sessions requiring A/V equipment are scheduled as indicated on the questionnaires
returned to the conference chair. There will be a schedule of the equipment at the help desk in the
foyer on the seventh floor. Please check the list to assure that your requests have been recorded. We
will try to make last-minute changes or additions as needed but cannot guarantee any requests not
previously submitted.

Length of Presentation: With the exception of a few special sessions previously arranged, each
presenter will have fifteen minutes for her or his paper. An additional fifteen minutes is earmarked for
questions after all presenters finish, at the discretion of the session chair. A page of text can be read
in about two minutes; generally speaking, therefore, seven or eight pages of text can be
accommodated in your fifteen-minute slot. Please pare longer papers to the essentials and make sure
you take no longer than fifteen minutes.

Session Chairs: A moderator has been assigned for each session. It is the moderator’s duty to make
sure each presenter does not run past the time allotment. The moderator is asked to let the presenter
know when three minutes remain, and to call for concluding remarks at the fourteenth minute. In
order to keep the sessions running smoothly and fairly, the moderator will take this duty seriously.

Session Etiquette: Experienced presenters are frequently confronted with sparsely attended sessions,
especially at the start of day or after breaks. Please make an attempt to attend sessions at this time.
Also, please observe the golden rule when leaving one session between presenters. Finally, assist
colleagues, especially junior ones, by sitting in on a session or two at random when nothing of
particular interest to you is offered.

Registration: It will naturally be assumed that anyone not registered has not presented at the
conference. That person’s name and paper will be removed from the schedule posted on the archive
portion of the website.
