Authors of Papers
The SEA does not require assignment of discussants for breakout sessions or advance distribution of paper drafts. The chairperson for each session may, however, make such requests. If so, the chairperson is responsible for contacting participants concerning discussant assignments. Contact your chairperson if you have questions about the session.
Each session chairperson is responsible for: (1) determining how much time presenters and discussants will have to speak, (2) deciding which paper(s) each discussant will discuss (if applicable), (3) making sure authors send papers to discussants on time (if applicable), (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. If unforeseen circumstances prevent you from meeting your commitment, immediately contact the SEA office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The chairperson for each session is responsible for contacting participants concerning discussant assignments and time allocations. Contact your chairperson if you have not heard from him/her. Please stay within the time allocated to you by your chairperson. If unforeseen circumstances prevent you from meeting your commitment, immediately contact your chairperson and the SEA office at email@example.com.
