Contributed and Speed Sessions

Contributed Sessions

Regular contributed paper sessions consist of four 20-minute oral presentations. Sessions will be assigned a chair, and there will be 20 minutes at the end of the session reserved for floor discussion. Regular contributed paper sessions will be arranged by the ICES VI Program Committee from submitted contributed paper abstracts.

Speed Sessions

Speed sessions are a combination of both an oral and poster presentation. These are intended to encourage face-to-face discussions and provide the opportunity to display graphic and tabular material. Each speed session begins with a five-minute overview presentation. Following this, authors will remain next to their poster for the duration of the session to answer questions and discuss their work. Each author is provided a 4-foot-high by 8-foot-wide (122 cm by 244 cm) bulletin board on which to display a summary of the paper. Note that poster presenters are not supplied with audio-visual equipment or electricity. Poster sessions will be arranged by the ICES VI Program Committee from submitted abstracts.
