Guidelines for session organisers, chairs, presenters and discussant

The following participation guidelines apply to organisers, chairs, presenters and discussants of Invited Paper Sessions (IPS), Special Topic Sessions (STS) and Contributed Paper Sessions (CPS) of the 62nd ISI WSC.

Each individual can present only one paper as an oral presenter during the 62nd ISI WSC. Exceptions will be granted only in unusual circumstances, and request must be approved by the Chairs of the Scientific Programme Committee (SPC) and Local Programme Committee (LPC).

A co-author of a paper being presented by someone else is not counted as a presenter. Hence, it is possible for an individual to be a co-author of multiple papers being presented at the 62nd ISI WSC.

i. A participation as discussant is not counted as a presenter.
ii. An individual can serve as a chair or a discussant in more than one session provided that there is no schedule conflict.
iii. Within the same session, any individual, including the session organiser, can take up the role of either presenter or chair or discussant, but should not assume any such two roles.

All organisers, chairs, presenters and discussants of any session must be registered as participants of the 62nd ISI WSC. Exception may be granted to organisers who are unable to attend, but not to individuals in any of the other roles.
