Session Chair Guidelines

The following guidelines are for chairing sessions at the Outlook Conferences. Guidelines are provided to ensure a smooth running of the conference. An attentive, well-prepared Session Chair and Co-chair can help in ensuring a high quality performance by the speakers, trouble-free talks that would lead in appreciation of sessions by the audience.

Session Chair Responsibilities:

  • Session chair will introduce the session topic, speakers, maintain the schedule & be prepared for the unexpected.
  • Check for any presentation unavailability & all their requirements prior the start of program.
  • Time slots allotted:
  • Plenary/Keynote Forum: 40 minutes -- (37 minutes talk {3 minutes questioners})
  • Invited Forum: 30 minutes -- (27 minutes talk {3 minutes questioners})
  • Oral Session: 25 minutes -- (22 minutes talk {3 minutes questioners})
  • Video Presentations: 20 minutes -- (17 minutes talk {3 minutes questioners})
  • Intimate the speakers about the above stipulated time slots & move to the questioners/one-one discussion.
  • Discussion with your co-chair regarding talks, program & other essentials with regard to program
  • If any speaker fails to appear, session chair has to fill the open time with standby paper, discussion topics, question-answer session, or an open discussion session.
  • Session chair will receive a session report form from the conference chair to use in tracking changes in a session.
  • Be sure about the presences of all the speakers allotted for the day1/ day 2 as per the schedule of the program, intimate immediately if any updates or changes to someone from the Program Committee/ Chairs or the conference organizer; so that we can follow up for him/her.

“Thank you for agreeing to assume high responsibility. Feedback is an essential aspect of this program”

Roles of the Session Chair/Co-Chair:

  • Meet with the support staff from the conference organizers prior to your session to review the workings of the lights, the AV equipment, and good positions for your speakers in your session’s room. It is a good idea to make sure a laser pointer is available.
  • Meet with all your speakers 15 minutes before the start of your session. At that time, make needed introductions and help them feel comfortable with the room arrangements and fellow participants.
  • Discuss their positions at the podium and remind them of their time limitations. Have all your speakers tried out their laptops, viewgraphs, and the microphone to determine any required assistance and to ensure a reasonable comfort level.
  • Describe to your speakers the method you will use to notify them when they are nearing their presentation time limit and how you will interrupt them if they have reached the end of their allotted time.
  • Try to leave time for pertinent questions and answers (especially if the talk is particularly inspiring or controversial). If however, all time has expired for that speaker, it is acceptable to ask the audience to discuss issues with that speaker after the end of the session.
  • It is up to you as the Session Chair to ensure that ALL speakers receive their allotted time and that the audience has opportunity for their questions and comments.
  • Organizing Committee wants to promote audience feedback whenever the speakers are presenting products, directions or methodologies. It is, therefore, important to have these speakers honor at least a minimum of 5/10-minute question/answer/comment/panel discussion period.
  • Inform your speakers of the exact time that each of their talks are to begin and remind them that attendees are free to get up and move to another session after each talk.
  • Two or three minutes should be allocated for this anticipated movement of people from session to session.
  • Further explain that because of this expected movement, it is particularly important for each talk to finish on time AND for the next speaker to begin at the appropriate time (even if the previous speaker ends early).
  • You can help facilitate a smooth change between speakers by asking the next speaker to begin moving toward the front and even switching laptops while the questions and answer session unfolds.
  • For each talk, introduce the speaker; give their affiliation and the title of their talk. It is nice to give a brief introduction of the speaker -- perhaps their background, or how their talk fits into the scheme of the session or conference. You may wish to use the published abstract as a starting point for this “introduction” material.
  • During each presentation it is session chair/ co-chair to assist the speakers if there are problems. If the speaker’s presentation is not displaying well, please find assistance to adjust the equipment. If lights need to be dimmed, please ask someone (Local Arrangements Committee staff member/Organizers). If the speaker cannot be heard or cannot be seen, you should politely try to correct the situation.

You must keep track of elapsed time during a presentation:

  • At 20 minutes of a 25-minute talk, give a *signal* to the speaker (could be card raised, or low voice). Adjust as necessary for longer presentations.

Question/Answer Period:

  • If time permits, the session chair should invite questions if the speaker does not do this.
  • An excellent session chair will have at least one general question ready for each speaker in order to help get the discussion off the ground, should the audience be reticent.
  • A really excellent session chair will actually ask each speaker for a potential “seed” question for you to ask should the opportunity be available!
  • When questions are asked, make every effort to get a microphone to the questioner (more important for the large general sessions than for the parallel sessions). If this is not possible, remind the speaker to repeat the questions, or repeat the question yourself if you are in a better position to hear the question.
  • Use your own judgment regarding the need for this depending on room acoustics.
  • As the allotted time for the speaker’s talk ends, initiate applause for the speaker.

At the End of the Session:

  • When the last speaker’s presentation and questions/answers have concluded, THANK the audience for attending and state that your session is now completed.
  • Remind attendees to go to the online evaluation system shortly before leaving the conference and complete their evaluations.
  • The link is listed in the program and the pocket schedule.  Thus end your duties as session chair!

Outlook Conferences is vital only through your volunteerism and participation.
