Arrive at your session room at least 15 minutes before the start of your session, to meet the Session Chair and check that your presentation has been correctly loaded. Time slots for most presentations are 25 minutes (20 minutes presentation, five minutes question and answer). For debates, lightning rounds, etc. please consult the THETA 2017 programme to see the allocated time.
