Time Management

Time is your MOST IMPORTANT responsibility. Please START the session on time. CONCLUDING the session on time is even more important so as not to impinge upon the next session. Also ensure that your session does not spill over into the changeover time between sessions. This time must be utilized only for the next session Chairpersons to settle down.

Conflict of Interest

It is absolutely mandatory that in any competitive session where you are the judge and you feel there may be conflict of interest because one of the presentations is by you/your associate/your family member/your institute please inform the Chairperson- Scientific Committee immediately on receiving the information about the  session, so that alternative arrangements could be made & you could be assigned a different session
