Back to FOSS4G2008 ...

The 2008 programme subcommittee is updating this, firstly with invited chairs, then they will ask for volunteers, who will put their names down for sessions. Currently, all the session chairs are presenting papers in the sessions to which they have been assigned, so there should not be any conflict for them with other events.

Session chairs serve as the "master of ceremonies" for one 90 minute session of presentations. Each session has four 20 minute presentations, with a 5 minute question-and-answer period after each. Chairs are expected to:

  • ensure that speakers' presentations are ready beforehand, either loaded onto the venue notebook, or running on their own notebook.
    • if presenter uses their own notebook, check projector connection (resolutions, cable, etc) before the session.
    • if presenter uses their own notebook, capture their presentation on a memory stick.
  • introduce the speakers,
  • ensure each speaker stays within his or her 25 minute combined presentations-plus-questions presentation limit,
  • ensure the next presentation starts promptly as scheduled, and
  • occasionally read off a few reminders and announcements at the end of the session.

Please add your name and email to one or more of the time slots below.

We need 5 session chairs for each time slot.

Check to ensure you are not presenting or teaching a lab during the session timeslot you are volunteering for. (FOSS4G2008 Schedule) If you have a particular room you want to chair, please note it in your entry.
