Here are some tips if you are a panelist or chair at CASID 2022. Please visit the Federation Guide for more.

  • For a standard, 4 person panel, plan for 15 minutes for each presentation with 30 minutes for questions and discussion. If there are less than 4 presenters the length of the presentations may be extended.
  • Use a computer with a dual screen set-up so that you can see your speaking notes, audience and share your screen at the same time.
  • Minimize or close other tabs and windows to reduce distractions for you and others and reduce the demand on your computer and internet connection.
  • In case of technical difficulties, send your slides to the chair before the session begins.
  • We invite you to prepare your slides in the official language other than the one in which you will speak (Thank you to CAAS for this suggestion).
  • Choose a quiet and bright location for your presentation, with a neutral background (virtual backgrounds can be distracting and use bandwidth).
  • Use a headset or headphones to prevent feedback and distractions.
  • Join your session 15 minutes in advance to test your audio and video with the other presenters, technical volunteer and chair.
  • You can test your audio and video in advance of your session at
  • If you can, use a hard-wired Ethernet connection or position yourself close to your modem/router to ensure the stability of your internet connection.
  • Note the call-in number for your conference session in the event of technical difficulties.
  • Relax, a Congress technical volunteer will be in every session to support you.

Enjoy your session!
