Oral Presentation Guidelines

Conference Chair/Session chair guidelines

Session chairs may wish to make some brief remarks on the theme of the session before introducing the speakers and chairing the subsequent discussion. In order to ensure the maximum time for roundtable discussion, the session chair's introductory remarks should not exceed five minutes. In particular, session chairs are asked to ensure that speakers keep to time and that there is ample opportunity for other participants to contribute to the discussion. Short biographies of all speakers will be included in the conference pack. 


Speakers, Session and Discussion Group Chairs are requested to supply a short biography before the event (no longer than three paragraphs) for inclusion in conference documentation.


A report will be distributed to all participants after the event. It will summarise the key conclusions and policy recommendations, but will not attribute views to any individual.
