This role is different from the session coordinator. If you are a session coordinator, please see the next FAQ entry. 

For each IAMSE Oral Presentation Session, a moderator is selected who will oversee the session and provide assistance as appropriate. Oral presentation slots are 1 hour long and within that time frame parallel sessions are scheduled. Each of these sessions contains 4 consecutive presentations. The presentations will be grouped thematically as best as possible.

The layout of each session will be:
00:00 opening by the session moderator
00:00 presentation #1, 10 min talk + 5 minutes Q&A
00:15 presentation #2, 10 min talk + 5 minutes Q&A
00:30 presentation #3, 10 min talk + 5 minutes Q&A
00:45 presentation #4, 10 min talk + 5 minutes Q&A
01:00 wrap up and closure by the session moderator


  • Coordinate with the 4 presenters PRIOR to the session and explain the process for the session. If you are an oral moderator and you do not know who your presenters are, please contact
  • Verify that all presentations are properly loaded on the session room laptop.
  • Open the session by welcoming the speakers and the audience and notify participants of the closest exit in case of an emergency.
  • Remind participants to turn their cell phones off as a professional courtesy.
  • Introduce each speaker by name, institution, and title of the presentation.
  • Guide the discussion and Q&A after the presentation. Please prepare the abstracts of the presentations in your session in advance so that you are prepared.
  • Remind participants about session evaluations that will be coming via email.

Keep each presentation and the session as a whole on time by making sure the presentations start exactly on 00:00, 00:15, 00:30 and 00:45 so that the conference participants who want to switch rooms in between presentations will not miss the beginning of the next lecture.

Important: If a presentation is canceled (no-show), please do not:

  • Move forward with the next speaker but postpone the session for 15 minutes.
  • Do not change the order of presentations.
  • Do not allow presenters to ‘combine’ two or more presentations into one longer presentation. Conference participants who want to switch rooms in between presentations will count on the presentations as listed in the program!

Close the session by thanking the speakers and the audience for their presence and contributions.

This role is different from the moderator. If you are a moderator, please see the previous FAQ entry. 

The purpose of a session coordinator is to assist in the smooth running of a Focus Session or Oral Presentation during the IAMSE Conference. As the session coordinator, you will be identified by a special ribbon on your name tag. For the focus sessions, the session coordinator is a more active role as you will be taking on the responsibilities of moderator as well. For the oral presentations, the session coordinator is asked to act as a back-up for the moderator. If the moderator is not present, we ask that you take up the role of the moderator

For oral presentations, we ask that you:

  • Arrive 15 minutes before the session begins to provide last-minute assistance to the presenter(s).
  • Introduce yourself to the speaker(s).
  • Provide assistance to the speaker if technical difficulties arise during the session. This may mean leaving the session to contact AV Tech Support at the registration desk.
  • Contact a member of the IAMSE Support Staff if other issues arise during the session such as room too cold/hot; insufficient seating.
  • If the moderator for your session is not present, please assume the role of moderator and follow the instructions in the FAQ entry above. 

For focus sessions, we ask that you do the above as well as:

  • Remind your speaker(s) of the importance of staying on time and how you will be alerting them as it gets closer to the end of their session.
  • Begin the session and notify participants of the closest exit in case of an emergency.
  • Remind participants to turn their cell phones off as a professional courtesy.
  • Monitor the starting and ending time of the session. If necessary:
    • Raise the big yellow card that says "5" when there are 5 minutes remaining.
    • Raise the big red card that says "3" when there are 3 minutes remaining.
  • Remind participants about session evaluations that will be coming via email.
