• I'm both a presider and a presenter in the same session. Do I need to introduce myself or will someone else?

    As the presider, you may introduce yourself.

  • How do presiders get speaker bios?

    Speaker bios can be obtained directly from the speaker.

  • What do I do if a speaker does not show up or has withdrawn?

    The open time must be held as a break or networking time. You may not move the remaining speakers up in time or have a new speaker give an unpublished and unscheduled presentation.

  • Do I need to keep track of the attendance for my session?

    You are not expected to keep track of attendance.

  • How do I find out what to do as a virtual presider (aka moderator, session chair) for my session?

    Presider training resources will be available at the end of January 2023 and will include this information.

  • Will there be technical support provided in the virtual meeting room?

    Yes, there will be a dedicated technical producer for each virtual meeting room.

  • I am a presider for an in-person oral technical room and/or a hybrid oral technical room. Do I have to preside over these rooms in person? 

    Presiders need to be physically present for an in-person oral session. However, presiders may participate in a hybrid oral session virtually. Presider training resources will be available at the end of January 2023 and will include additional information.
