The presentation language of ACSW 2008 is English
Session Chairs are requested to register at least 2 HOURS before their session. Registration tables will be open from 8.30am each day of the conference.
You must arrive at the room (in which you will deliver your talk) 15 MINUTES before the commencement of the session. This allows the Session Chair to confirm your attendance and allow you to introduce yourself to him/her and familiarise yourself with the venue prior to your talk.
Please bring with you a single paragraph summary, including your name (as you would like to be introduced), affiliation and research interests (maximum 100 words), which the Session Chair can use to introduce you.
During these 15 minutes, you should copy your talk to the presentation computer. If you plan to use your own equipment, you should set it up within this 15 minutes, since there is very little time between presentations. If you have requested optional equipment, ensure that is in the room. Make sure you know how the audio system works in the room, and whether you will be heard if you roam.
Please check the program for the exact time of your session and where your paper falls within the session. Please keep strictly to the time guidelines. The Session Chair will be instructed to ensure that you do not over-run the time allocated.
The keynote presentations will be for 75 minutes. This will be followed by 15 minutes of questions / discussion. Allow 5 minutes for movement between rooms (if necessary).
The invited speaker presentations will be for 45 minutes. This will be followed by 15 minutes of questions / discussion. Allow 5 minutes for movement between rooms (if necessary).
Full paper presentations will be for 20 minutes. This will be followed by 10 minutes of questions / discussion. After each presentation, there will be a 5 minute break, to allow the audience to move between sessions.
After each presentation, there is a short amount of time for questions. The Session Chair will control the questions in question time, and keep to the schedule. To ensure that the audience has heard the question, please repeat the question if the questioner does not use a microphone.
