1. TIMELINE FOR VARIOUS TYPES OF PRESENTATION

- For oral presentation: 15 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for questions and comments
- Posters will be presented all together (presenters should be available one hour for explanations)
2. BEFORE PRESENTATIONS
- If possible, please contact lecturers prior to the session that you lead. Ask them how they want to be introduced. The names, titles and short overviews of presentations are available in the Program.
- Be in the hall at least 5 minutes before the start of lectures.
- Make sure the room is adequately equipped; check to see if all the required equipment is available.
- Before the start ask the lecturers to check if their USB keys operate on these devices or upload their presentations to the desktop.
- Ensure that each lecturer is acquainted with the time they have available (above in the timeline).
- In sessions with oral presentations each lecturer should have maximum of 15 minutes for the presentation (at the end of each session there will be about 20 minutes for discussion and questions).
- Round tables, workshops and the panels should take place in consultation with the participants that you have invited. It is recommended that there remains some time for questions and discussion with the audience.
- Sessions contain two, three or four contributions, depending on the length of the session and type of contribution.
- To help there will be some volunteers.
3. DURING THE PRESENTATION
- In the absence of any lecturer rearrange the duration of the lectures (or even extend the time for the presentation of all lecturers and / or – better still – extend the time for debate). Subsequent changes to the program will be posted daily at the reception.
- Ensure that the session begins and ends at the exact time.
- At the beginning please welcome participants and introduce yourself in a few words and introduce theme(s) of session.
- Follow the order of presentations, as stated in the program (some participants want to attend more lectures in parallel sessions).
- Introduce each lecturer, as he/she wanted (title of the article, author’s name and surname and basic information about the author, eg. where he works, his professional activity).
- Make sure the lecturers stick to a certain time they have to talk, and tell them that you can point five minutes (and later two minutes) before the expiry of the time they have available. Lecturers who take more time than available can disturb a possibility for others to have equal opportunities to present their work and omit possibility of questions and discussion.
- Discussion should be open at the end of the thematic unit (session) after all presentations.
- Make sure that as many of the participants possible had the opportunity to discuss and ask questions. In a case of a long time discussion of only one or two participants, check if there are any others would like to be included, too in the debate or to put your question. Have ready one or two of your questions to break the ice before other participants can formulate their thoughts and questions.
- At the end of the debate please summarize in a few sentences the conclusions of the debate.
4. IN THE END
- Please complete the work at the scheduled time, give thanks to the lecturers, and the audience for attentive listening and participation in the debate.
Thank you very much for your cooperation!
