To allow enough time for discussion in the Panel, which is its main goal, the following structure should be followed:

  • The Panel should not have more than 4 participants, plus the moderator.
  • The organiser is supposed to be the moderator.  There should be only 1 moderator.
  • The organiser has to establish a few questions to be addressed by the participants.
  • The moderator gives a 10-minute introduction presentation at the beginning of the panel.
  • Participants should address the questions posed, in a 10-minute presentation each (very strict time control!).  Basically, the presentation should consist of 6 slides, i.e., the cover slide plus one per question.


Panels will be held during the conference programme, in parallel to other technical sessions, i.e., on TBD.


The panel occupies one conference time-slot, i.e., 1h30.
