Each paper presentation is on a 3-paper panel with a separate individual discussant for each paper. Authors have 18 minutes to present, discussant comments are 8 minutes, and audience interaction is 14 minutes. We request that authors do not respond to discussant comments until all audience-generated discussion is complete.

Papers presentation is in the order listed on the program, which will allow attendees to move between rooms and papers.

If you are the first or last discussant on your panel, we ask your help to ensure the panels run smoothly. The last discussant on each panel is the panel timekeeper. Please start and end the panel session on time. You should signal to each speaker the amount of time they have left and when their time is up. We will provide "time remaining" signs in each room. The first discussant should be the timekeeper when the last discussant is speaking. (If you cannot do so, please ask the second discussant to play this role.)
