Guidelines for Chairs
Chairs play an essential role in moderating panel sessions and ensuring their success. In addition to
carefully monitoring the time allowed for presentations, chairs typically offer a brief welcome and
moderate the Q&A discussion with the audience after the presentations. Click here for more information.
