On behalf of the Joint Technical Program Committee for the 2019 Annual Meeting, we would like to express our sincere gratitude for your agreeing to serve as a session chairperson for the upcoming meeting. The success of the technical program relies to a large degree on efforts such as yours.
We encourage you to attend a Session Chair Orientation provided on-site for all session chairs. These sessions are designed to assist session chairs with tips and to answer all questions in order to ensure their sessions are successful. It would be helpful to have at least one chairperson from every session attend an Orientation Session.
Please watch these training videos prior to coming to Phoenix:
Please check the Technical Program Schedule to view presentation titles and times of your session.
The building security will be in charge. In the unlikely event that you might need to use the exits, please identify their locations before you start the session. If an announcement sounds over the loud speakers, the message may not be clear inside a room, so please have someone else check the message. Stay in control of the lectern and instruct the audience to remain seated. If you are being asked to evacuate the building, instruct the audience to exit calmly to the right or to the left.
Any emergency requiring medical, police or fire assistance should be directed to the Phoenix Convention Center. Dial 85 from a house phone, or from cell phone dial +1-602-239-5906.
Dial 911 for all life-threatening emergencies.
