Role Limits

To limit the number of concurrent and potentially conflicting presentations, and to increase the impact and prestige of the poster sessions, individuals may serve in the following roles:

  • presenting author on no more than two posters, and
  • presenting author/panelist on no more than one oral presentation (paper, individual symposium presentation, or panel), and
  • chair or discussant on no more than one symposia or panel.

 

Scheduling Criteria

The Program Committee can consider only the presenting author, chair, panelists, and discussant of each submission when resolving scheduling conflicts.

 

The Program Committee will reject submissions with participants exceeding the role limits outlined above. Consideration of which presentation to reject when a participant has surpassed his or her limit will be made with attention to the order in which submissions were received.

 

Author Limits

  • Papers, posters, and individual symposium presentations must have one presenting author and no more than seven additional authors.
  • Panels must have exactly three panelists and one chair.
  • Paper sessions, symposia, and panels must each have one chair.
  • Symposia, depending on the number of individual presentations, may have one discussant.
