Guidelines for Presenters and Chairs

Guidelines for Presenters and Chairs

I am a Presenter

The time alloted to your presentation will depend on the numbers of presenters in your panel. As a general guideline, the standard Q&A will be 30 minutes. Therefore, estimated guidelines are:
  • Three presenters in your panel = 20 minutes each
  • Four Presenters in your panel = 15 minutes each
  • Five presenters in your panel = 12 minutes each
  • Six Presenters = 10 minutes each
Please be mindful to respect the chair’s guidelines, and allow each presenter to receive sufficient space for presentation and questions.

  • Please bring a laptop with a HDMI or VGA – 15 pin port. Not all classrooms at University of Toronto will have computers at the docking station. We appreciate it if session chairs can bring their own laptop to ensure access to docking facilities.
  • Arrive ten minutes early – the location of the session will be included in the conference programme in the coming day
  • Allow at least 30 minutes in the session for questions and answers
  • Divide the remaining time among the number of papers being presented
  • Please strictly keep time to ensure equal time available for all presenters
