Presenters

If you are presenting one or more papers at the conference, you will be able to share your screen live on the Collaborate platform (note that the browser will ask for recording permissions and you will have to accept the request). Each room will have a moderator with administrative rights that will give and revoke rights as needed.

When you enter the room, you will have to enter your full name. Enter the tag "(presenter N)" (where N is your paper number) after your name, so that you can be given the rights to share your mic, cam, and screen. As soon as you enter the room, write in the chat that you are a speaker and the moderator will grant the rights to you.


The presentation of a full paper will be 20-minutes long, followed by a 5 minutes Q/A.

The presentation of a short paper will be 10-minutes long, followed by a 3 minutes Q/A.

Each paper is indicated with the paper number used in the proceedings.

Session chairs

If you are chairing one or more session at the conference, you will be able to share your mic and camera on the Collaborate platform (note that the browser will ask for permissions and you will have to accept the request). Each room will have a moderator with administrative rights that will give and revoke rights as needed.
