Stopwatch Sessions

Moderated by a time keeper and presented in only 6 minutes each, these succinct sessions are scheduled during a concurrent session time slot with 5 presentations back to back. Time is provided at the end of the session for Q&A with all five presenters. Timing is important to ensure equal presentation time for all speakers and ample time for Q&A. Please ensure your presentation time is within the 6 minute time limit!

  • When the session moderator announces that it’s time for Q&A/discussion, please turn on your camera and microphone so that attendees can see and hear you.

  • After the session ends, be sure to leave the Zoom room/log out as we will use the same link for the next presentation in that meeting room.
