Live Discussion Sessions

Each thematic panel and subject cluster (formerly known as “parallel session”) will be assigned two two-hour slots for live discussion of papers between 7–10 June 2021 (HKT). This is to facilitate participants from different time zones to tune-in at times most convenient for them. There is no restriction on how many times (maximally twice) anyone can enter the discussion session for a specific panel or cluster. 


Panel chairs are expected to chair each of their discussion sessions. If, due to irreconcilable time zone issues or other factors, chairs of panels cannot facilitate one or both discussion sessions, they are requested to arrange chairs from among their panel members. 


We will invite participating colleagues to volunteer chairing subject clusters built around individual papers. 


All registered conference participants will be able to join each of the two live discussions for all panels and clusters, regardless of their role as “chair”, “discussant”, “presenter” or “audience member”.


The time of each of the two discussion slots is limited to two hours.
