* Each session lasts a total of 1 hour and 45 minutes. In a four-paper session, each presenter/discussant pair can occupy only about 25 total minutes. Presenters must therefore be limited to roughly 20 minutes and discussants to roughly 5 minutes. Chair's responsibilities include provision of a laptop computer for the session, and ensuring that all presentations and all sets of discussion comments (if relevant) are preloaded onto the computer and queued-up for presentation prior to the start time of the session. (Detailed suggestions are available for less experienced chairpersons.)
