INSTRUCTIONS FOR PRESENTERS AND SESSION CHAIRS

In-Person Sessions

  • Individual paper sessions are 90 minutes in length and include three to four presentations. Each presenter will have 20 minutes for the presentation and Q&A, leaving 10 minutes at the end of each session for additional Q&A. There are no discussants. The order of presentations will follow the order listed on the program. Organized sessions are also 90 minutes in length; however, the format (including whether there are discussants) is determined by each session’s organizer.
  • Laptops will be provided for all in-person sessions.
  • Presenters: We encourage you to upload your presentation to your session's subfolder (organized by session date, time and name) in this Google Drive folder at least 24 hours before the session start time. Slides should be titled (presentationtitle_lastname) and in .pdf format. You can also bring your presentation on a flash drive.
    • Some sessions will offer virtual access for attendees. Those sessions are noted on the program as "Select Virtual Access". Online attendees will have the opportunity to watch your presentation and ask questions in writing via Zoom’s Q&A feature. If you are presenting in a session offering virtual access, please repeat questions (from in-person and online attendees) prior to answering them.
  • Session Chairs: Unless otherwise noted, the session chair will be the last presenter in each session.
    • Session chairs should contact session participants in advance of the conference to plan for the session, share papers, etc.
    • Session chairs are responsible for ensuring that their session runs on time, strictly enforcing the limits placed on individual presentations and speakers.

Online Sessions

  • Online sessions will be hosted on Zoom. Although you can access Zoom through your web browser, we strongly suggest that you use the app for a higher quality experience. It is available for free download here: https://zoom.us/download.
    • We will be using Zoom Meeting.
      • SBCA Headquarters will be sending more detailed login instructions closer in time to the conference.

Each presenter will have 20 minutes for the presentation and Q&A, leaving 10 minutes at the end of each session for additional Q&A. There are no discussants.

    • Session chairs should contact session participants in advance of the conference to plan for the session, share papers, etc.
    • Session chairs will be set up as the Zoom host, with each of presenters as co-hosts, so you can share your screen when presenting. During the session, chairs and/or presenters will need to let attendees in from the waiting room.
      • If you are unfamiliar with the use of Zoom, you may wish to explore the training options here.
    • Please plan to log in 15 minutes ahead of your session start time so we can test the Zoom settings and confirm how you want to handle the technical details of the session.
    • Session chairs are responsible for ensuring that their session runs on time, strictly enforcing the limits placed on individual presentations and speakers.
    • As a benefit of the conference, most online sessions will be recorded, and recordings made available to registered conference participants after the conference. Session chairs should check with presenters, panelists, and any others in their sessions to verify their permission to record. 
      • It is the responsibility of the session chair to notify SBCA Headquarters at [email protected] to opt out of recording.
