Structure

To allow enough time for discussion in the Panel, which is its main goal, the following structure should be followed:

  • The Panel should not have more than 5 participants, plus the moderator.
  • The organiser is supposed to be the moderator. There should be only 1 moderator.
  • The organiser has to establish a few questions to be addressed by the participants.
  • The moderator gives a 10-minute introduction presentation at the beginning of the panel.
  • Participants should address the questions posed, in a 10-minute presentation each (very strict time control!).  Basically, the presentation should consist of 6 slides, i.e., the cover slide plus one per question.

Schedule and format

Panels will be held during the main conference programme, in parallel to other technical sessions. As of now, the panels are planned to be organized in a hybrid format with both physical on-site and virtual dimension.

The panel occupies one conference time-slot, i.e., about 1h30.
