How to Participate

Limits on Presentations

The guidelines below encourage a wide and diverse set of presenters.

Each participant may do one activity from each of categories A-D:

  1. Deliver a main presentation (one of the following):
    • Present in an invited session
    • Present a contributed paper
    • Present a poster
  2. Chair a session
  3. Teach a workshop
  4. Serve as a discussant in an invited session

While these guidelines allow for multiple participation roles within the ICHPS program, please note that a person cannot hold multiple roles within one session.

In addition, the participation rules do not preclude individuals from being coauthors of as many papers as they wish or from organizing multiple sessions.

Only the co-chairs of ICHPS 2018 may grant exceptions to these rules. For the co-chairs to consider any exception, sufficient justification must be submitted. This still does not guarantee an exception will be made.

Please contact Naomi Friedman and copy in case of questions or with a request for an exception.
