Invited faculty must accept their role via the online service as indicated in the invitation email.
We thank you for your consideration of these guidelines and the requirements for special session formats.
Chairperson Interface - A dedicated computer is installed in the lecture room at the chairperson’s table to enhance visibility of the ongoing session and to assist in managing the session, as well as collecting evaluations and comments at the end. The hostess in the lecture room will be available to assist in testing the chairperson’s interface on the practice stage.
Session Introduction - An automated presentation has been created for the audience to introduce the chairpersons and session information, including topic, track, and special features such as how to vote or ask a question. Chairpersons will use their interface to launch the presentation when their sessions begin.
Chairpersons should ensure the smooth progress of the session, time management as well as encourage discussions and interactions between faculty members and the audience by allowing sufficient time for questions from the audience.
We recommend that all chairpersons liaise with speakers at their sessions as early as possible, preferably prior to the Congress.

Briefings will be organised for some special sessions to comply with specific content and technology requirements, i.e. mobile app voting functionality.

If involved in special format sessions, please make sure to consult specific session instructions in your agreements. Additional information will be communicated by email.

Audiences will be instructed on how to use the voting apps during presentations prior to the sessions. Chairpersons should encourage audience members to participate in the votes and can participate themselves via their own mobile devices.
