Session Guidelines:
* Plenary Sessions: Each plenary session of one hour will have 8 – 10 speakers/awardees who will speak for 5-6 minutes each. Awards will be conferred at the close of the plenary session.
* Parallel Sessions: Each session of one hour will have 4 co-speakers on a panel. Who will speak 10-12 minutes each. Balance time will be for interaction remarks and Q&A.
* Role of Moderator: The speakers in each parallel session are advised to select from amongst themselves a moderator who will strictly enforce the time allotted for each speaker.
All speakers in a session will also be connected to each other via email in advance so they can coordinate their discussions, ahead of the conference. If a moderator is not selected by the speakers, then a member of the WEF 19 organising committee allotted to that session will handle that part. In Addition, Two members from the WEF 19 organising committee will be allotted to each conference hall for coordination among speakers. These names will be given to speakers closer to the date. (The session topics & timing are subject to change)
