Presenters

All presentations (keynotes, research papers) take place in sessions moderated by a session chair. Pre-recorded presentations will be streamed according to the session’s schedule, which is kept by the session chair.

Although presentations are pre-recorded, you’re required to join your session to discuss your work:

  • Keynotes sessions are 60 minutes long with 45 minutes reserved for your presentation and 15 minutes set aside for discussing it.
  • Research paper sessions are typically 90 minutes long. Long research papers are assigned a 20 minutes slot with 15 minutes reserved for your presentation and 5 minutes set aside to discuss it. Short research papers are assigned a 15 minutes slot with 10 minutes for your presentation and 5 to discuss it.

Session chairs

If you are chairing a session, your main role is to introduce those presenting, to moderate each presentation’s discussion and to keep the session’s schedule.

Please join your session’s room 5 to 10 minutes before the scheduled time. Make sure you are in a quiet well lit location and test your connection by interacting with the presenter(s), the session’s student volunteer or the technical support staff.

Please begin the session by introducing all presenting.

Pre-recorded presentations will be streamed by our technical support staff at your cue.

During the discussion, expect participants joining the session’s room (a Zoom meeting) to raise their hands to ask questions.

Participants can also attend the session through the session’s stream (a Vimeo stream). These might send questions thorough the Q&A feature of each presentation. The session’s student volunteer will copy them into the chat feature of the session’s room for your convenience.

Finally, wrap the session with an overview. And that’s it!

Student volunteers

You can be assigned one of four kinds of os activities: Workshop, panel, plenary sessions, and research paper sessions.

Your primary role is to be the face and eyes of NordiCHI 2020. Please show up 15 minutes before your assigned activities or sessions, welcome participants identifying yourself as the session’s student volunteer, ask activity organisers or session chairs if they need your assistance and act accordingly, remain put until everyone leaves and close the room.

Activities and sessions take place in dedicated rooms (Zoom meetings). Make sure that when you join you are in a quiet and well-lit location. Test your connection by interacting with the organizers, chairs, presenters, or the technical support staff.

If you are supporting a plenary or research paper session, you’ll have the additional tasks of copying all questions posted through the sessions Q&A (a Worksup feature) to the room’s chat so that the chairs can get them easily. This is important so, please make yourself familiar with the setup of the online conference venue before working a plenary or parallel session. Do reach out to the Student Volunteer chairs if you have any questions.

And of course, make sure you enjoy the conference. We would love to throw you a party but unfortunately, this will not be possible. Maybe one day 🙂
