Panel Organisation

85 panels and round tables will be presented in ICCG 2015. Panels are organized into 90-minute time-slots. As such, participants are expected to time their contributions to 15-20 minutes, and to allocate some time for constructive discussion. Speakers are requested to respect the indicated time limits. All presentations must be made in English, the working language of the conference. A 30-minutes break will seperate sessions from one another.

Panel Chairs

Chairs are expected to strictly uphold the time of presentations, Q&A, and overall duration of the panel. It is recommended that panel Chairs proceed with introducing and giving the platform to all speakers first, and then open up the floor for questions and discussion. Here we would like to note that two thirds of panels are organized by the ICCG 2015 from individually submitted papers. For these, we have nominated a speaker from each panel to Chair it. If the named person does not wish to do so or s/he is absent, panelist should choose someone else to be the Chair.


All rooms are equipped with LCD-Projectors. Participants that requested sound amplifiers have to pick those up from the Registration Desk in the 30-minute break prior to the beginning of the session in which they are presenting. Presenters who have not signed up for sound amplifiers and wish to have this equipment need to check for availability at the Registration Desk in advance. Participants should bring with them any additionally needed adapters and/or extensions. Moreover, we recommend you have your presentation backed up on a USB key in case of emergency.

Please note that rooms are not equipped with computers i.e. participants who will be using slides or something similar should bring their laptops with them and/or arrange for sharing devices with others.

Cafeteria and Lunch

The cafeteria is located in the ground floor of Building D (map included in printed version of the program), which will be open at all times during the conference sessions for drinks and snacks.
