Session Chairs

Each session chairperson is responsible for: (1) deciding which paper(s) each discussant will discuss, (2) determining how much time presenters and discussants will have to speak, (3) making sure authors send papers to discussants on time, (4) making preparations for brief introductions of speakers, (5) seeing that the session begins and ends on time and that authors and discussants stay within the time limits allowed. Chairpersons are strongly encouraged to leave enough time at the end of each session for questions and comments from the audience. Each chairperson should e-mail participants in his/her session by October 6 and inform them of which paper each discussant is assigned to discuss and the amount of time that authors and discussants will have to speak. The chairperson should remind each author that he/she should submit his/her paper to the discussant no later than October 19. If unforeseen circumstances prevent you from meeting your commitment, immediately contact the SEA office at sea@utc.edu.
