Schedule

"Rules of the game" for the paper sessions:

  1. The sessions will last 90 minutes each.
  2. Authors will have 15 minutes to present their papers. Session chairs should encourage compliance with this time limit.
  3. The rooms will have standard presentation equipment (laptops with PowerPoint and projectors – Note! EHA does not provide a projector for transparencies!). If you have special needs, please let Jari Eloranta (elorantaj@appstate.edu) know.
  4. All three papers should be presented first. We would suggest using the order in the program.
  5. After all three papers have been presented, the discussants will take the floor. Discussants will have 10 minutes per paper (some discussants have more than one paper to discuss). Session chairs will again encourage compliance with this time limit.
  6. This should leave approximately 15 minutes for discussion from the floor and author/discussant responses.
