Important information for session chairs

Thank you for accepting the important role of chairing a session during the upcoming ANZCA Annual Scientific Meeting taking place in Brisbane, Queensland from May 12 – 16.

SESSION DETAILS
Details pertaining to the time and location of your session(s) can be found here.

SPEAKER BIOs
Please find attached the bios of the speakers presenting in your session. Copies of the speaker bios will be available at the ANZCA and FPM information desk and will also be provided in the conference room.

SPEAKER CONTACT
We have included the contact email address of the speakers in your session. You may choose to contact the speakers in your session direct to discuss how you envisage the session running.

CHAIR INSTRUCTIONS

However, should you have any queries whilst onsite, please approach the ANZCA desk in the Foyer Level of the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, where staff will be able to assist you.

AUDIO VISUAL
In order to familiarise yourself with the AV technician and equipment, we do recommend that you arrive at your session ahead of time.

CHAIR INTERFACE AND VIRTUAL ASM
The ANZCA Virtual ASM will allow the audience to submit questions and/or respond to polling via the Virtual ASM. Using the Virtual ASM on a smartphone, tablet and laptop, delegates will be able to submit questions at any time during the session.

Please also take some time to watch this short video that contains useful information for Chairs.

Please approach the AV technician within the room for further information. You may, of course, visit the Speaker Support room (Mezzanine Level Meeting Room M9) at any time prior to your session if you have further questions regarding the AV, chair interface or the Virtual ASM.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA
This year, we have made all sessions ‘open’ for delegates to discuss on social media channels (primarily Twitter) unless otherwise advised. We have asked speakers to inform session chairs before the start of the session if there is any confidential or sensitive content they want to be left out of the social media conversation. We would ask that session chairs begin every session with a reminder for delegates to respect any such requests, and also to keep social media conversations collaborative and respectful.

If you would like to know more about social media and how it will be used at the ASM, please feel free to contact our Digital Communications Manager, Al Dicks, on adicks@anzca.edu.au or 0413 053 706.

Thank you again for your support and involvement.

Please don’t hesitate to contact Fran Lalor, Senior Events Officer on flalor@anzca.edu.au or +61 8517 5317 with any queries.
