Oral Session Chair Guidelines

Replacing an empty oral slot: If there is a withdrawal from an oral session, the session conveners may request that a poster presentation from the accompanying poster session be moved to replace the withdrawn oral presentation. This can only be done to and from accompanying sessions and only with the authors’ explicit consent. Please send an email to with details of the withdrawn abstract, the details of the abstract that will be moved into the oral presentation slot, and the email or message where the poster presenter has given consent to being moved to an oral presentation.

Note: New abstracts CANNOT be added to fill empty slots in either oral or poster session.

Your Role as Chair

  • Use any reasonable means to stop a speaker who has exceeded the allotted time. The session must stay on schedule for both the audience and other speakers, as per the approved program.
  • Only an author listed on a paper may be a presenter. No other substitutions are permitted.
  • If a paper has been withdrawn or a speaker does not appear, call for discussion of previous papers in that session or call a recess. Do not start the next paper until the time listed in the program. Please mark any “no-show” presenters on the Chairperson’s Evaluation, which will be provided in advance of the meeting.
  • You may interrupt speakers in order to ask them to speak more audibly, slowly, or clearly, to face the audience, or to briefly explain the message of an illegible slide.
  • Speakers cannot connect their laptops into computer projectors. Speakers have been instructed to load their presentation in advance in the Speaker Ready Room.
  • As Chair, you must keep the session on schedule. Do not go to the next presentation, and do not allow the session to overrun while a projectionist is trying to solve problems.
