How do I handle my role as a CHAIR/PRESENTER/DISCUSSANT and/or ATTENDEE?
Chairs will be expected to:
Presenters are expected to:
Discussants are not required at CIES. They are usually identified in formal panel sessions that have been created by a group of people together. They should follow the same procedures as presenters. Time limits for discussants are usually about 5 minutes. We suggest you contact the Chair of the session to discuss the preferred approach, as there are not usually discussants for created panels (panels made up of individual presenters).
Attendees are invited to attend as many sessions as they would like to. Onsite attendees will have access to all onsite and virtual sessions, meetings, and events. Virtual attendees will have access to all virtual sessions and meetings as well as any onsite plenary meetings that are available in the Conference Hub. All virtual links are on the Conference Hub. Please sign in with your registration username and password. Do not wait until your presentation or session is to begin to log in for the first time. There will not be enough staff to assist if too many people wait to make sure that they can log in to the Conference Hub.
Photography or recording of onsite sessions, Zoom sessions, or asynchronous presentations is NOT PERMITTED. Zoom meeting sessions reveal the identity not only of the presenters but also all attendees. Recording or photography is not ethical or permitted without the permission of everyone, and this becomes impossible in large sessions, and when people come and go during sessions. Please do not take screen shots, take photos, or record sessions. Many presenters prefer that their work-in-progress not be circulated without permission. And some sessions may include sensitive content that should not be shared beyond those in attendance. If you wish to read a presenter’s paper, please email them to ask for a copy.
