Presenters' Resources

The format of the conference allows for a 20 minutes presentation and a five minutes Q&A period. It may differ if you are invited to a panel discussion session. In that case, your session chair will confirm the exact presentation time.

An email specifying the presentation date and time will be sent to each presenter on March 22, 2019.
