Participation Guidelines

Limits on Presentations

The QDET2 Organizing Committee has put into place the following guidelines to help encourage a wide and diverse set of presenters:

Each participant may participate in one (1) activity from each of categories A-E:

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

While the above guidelines allow for multiple presenting roles within the QDET2 program, note that a person cannot hold multiple roles within one session. In addition, the participation rules do not preclude individuals from being co-authors of as many papers as they wish or from organizing multiple sessions. Only the QDET2 Organizing Committee chair in discussion with the program chair, with ample justification, can grant exceptions to the above rules.
