Key information for panellists and moderators


How it will work

  • The moderator will make a short introduction to the topic. 
  • Each panellist will then be given about 5 minutes each to speak about their perspective. The moderator will then ask panellists questions to facilitate an interactive discussion. Questions will be also taken from the audience via SLIDO.
  • At the end of 35min, the moderator will then provide closing remarks and a conclusion to the panel session.
  • The moderator and panellists will be introduced via email prior to the event. Do take the opportunity to discuss the topic and get to know each other.
  • No presentation required.



Key information for track/plenary Chairperson


As Chairperson, your role is crucial to the success of the track. The basic requirements include:

  • Doing a short opening address (less than 2 minutes)
  • Introducing the speakers
  • Moderating any panel discussions if moderators are not stated 
  • Conducting the Q&A after each session (if there is time for this)

However, you are also the person who will set the tone for the conference. As such:

  • I need you to prepare an opening address that explains what will be discussed. Make this eloquent, interesting and substantial, and it will set the right tone for the track content.
  • I need you to help keep up the energy in the room. When you address the audience, be witty, amusing and energetic – they will respond accordingly.

Also, I need you to:

  • Manage the timing and help ensure the event runs on schedule (in consultation with the conference manager)
  • Manage the flow of information being shared and help ensure this is high quality. How to do this will be outlined below.

How it will work

  • The workshops are a pre-event component. They will happen at Level 3 @ Suntec Convention Center. Room numbers will be communicated closer to the conference date. 
  • Workshops are set to run for two hours (120min) and must be hands-on and interactive. 
  • The workshop size is restricted to maximum 45 attendees.
  • You will be provided with the following:
    • Laptop o Projector 
  • Should you have any additional requirements please let us know in advance 
  • Should you be keen to bring in your own device, please do let us know in advance. Also please make sure you carry your own connectors and dongles
