    • Clarifying questions will be asked during the talk, but most major questions will wait for post-discussion

    • Note: this format is still experimental.

  • Let us know -- -- if you have any suggestions for technology or format changes.

Discussion format

The two discussants will have 10 minutes for each of their presentations. In the interest of time, discussions should exclude the standard summary of the paper. Instead, the focus on the presentation should be on 2-4 major comments, critiques or extension ideas. The virtual environment demands cleaner, simpler slides than found in normal discussions, so think of a slide as "one big point." Discussants should present no more than 5 slides.

Instructions for attendees: Q&A and moderation

As an attendee, you will not be able to unmute yourself. If you have questions about the content of the talk, please submit the questions using the Zoom Q&A feature. Time permitting, and depending on the volume of questions, the moderator will either ask your question for you or confirm with you to ask the question yourself and unmute you at a suitable time. In some meetings, the collaborators of the speaker will be online to address your questions in Q&A. Note that Q&A will be moderated by the organizers so you will only be able to see some of the questions of the other attendees. If you want to send messages to the moderators during the seminar, please use the Zoom chat feature.
