The speaker's presentation lasts for up to 50 minutes, followed by questions from the audience (for about 10 minutes). Each seminar is moderated by the session host who collects questions during the talk.
If possible, participants should keep their cameras on (to give the speaker the sense of an audience) and their mics off (to minimize background noise) during the presentation.
We will experiment with various methods for questions. During the seminar, only short clarifying questions shall be asked. Speakers will be encouraged to pause every few slides to allow a gap for questions.
These rules are subject to change as we gain experience at how to most efficiently organize the seminar.“
