    • Invited Talks – 40 minutes (35 minutes talk + 5 minutes Q&A)
    • Contributed Talks – 20 minutes (15 minutes talk + 5 minutes Q&A)
    • Lightning Talks - 5 minutes (3 minutes talk + 2 minutes Q&A)
  • The chair of your session will introduce your talk and then moderate all questions from the attendees in the ‘Chat Box’.
  • Authors are responsible for ensuring that they have the necessary copyright / permissions for all material included within their presentation.
  • Please note all sessions will be recorded and shared with attendees and via the On-Demand service. If you do not want your presentation recorded, please notify us prior to your session.
