... .html Session chairs. The last speaker of the session will chair the session, with two exceptions for PhD-only sessions: Combinatorial Optimization (Mon 18, Room PP, 16-17) chaired by R. Schrader, and Graphs III (Wed 20, Room PP, 9:30-10:30) chaired by R. Cordone. Session chairs must remind speakers to load up slides on laptops, and keep the sessions on time. Session chairs are encouraged to be cruel and despotic as regards times allotted, since there are parallel sessions. If a speaker will not get your hints, standing is often not enough: just cut him/her short and invite the next speaker (as the last speaker in the session, you have every incentive to do so, but please don't be the chair who overruns his own time slot). Conversely, if a speaker ends before the time is up, you should encourage some questions/discussion/debate: e.g. invite questions from the audience and leave a pause long enough to be slightly awkward, then possibly someone will ask a question just to fill in the horrible silence, and then other questions may follow. If no-one asks, you can start off the debate by asking a session yourself. In any case, keep all slots to exactly 30 minutes (parallel sessions regime).
