Call for Panels

Goal

A Panel aims at bringing together speakers from industry and academia, encompassing several sectors, to discuss a timely and relevant topic of interest to conference participants.

Proposal

The proposal for a Panel should follow the Template, available at the conference website, under “Authors / Call for Panels” (https://pimrc2020.ieee-pimrc.org/authors/call-for-panels), indicating the following information:

  • Proposer’s Name
  • Proposer’s Institution
  • Proposer’s Email
  • Proposer’s Phone Number
  • Proposer’s CV
  • Panel Title
  • Motivation and Context
  • Questions
  • Participants List
  • Participants’ CV
  • Participants’ Photo

The proposal should be sent to Panels Co-Chairs via pimrc-panels@live.ucl.ac.uk:

  • as a *.PDF attachment,
  • as a file named as the Panel title (abbreviated, if necessary),
  • by the deadline, Apr. 10th, 2020.

Structure

To allow enough time for discussion in the Panel, which is its main goal, the following structure should be followed:

  • The Panel should not have more than 4 participants, plus the moderator.
  • The organiser is supposed to be the moderator.  There should be only 1 moderator.
  • The organiser has to establish a few questions to be addressed by the participants.
  • The moderator gives a 10-minute introduction presentation at the beginning of the panel.
  • Participants should address the questions posed, in a 10-minute presentation each (very strict time control!).  Basically, the presentation should consist of 6 slides, i.e., the cover slide plus one per question.

Schedule

Panels will be held during the conference programme, in parallel to other technical sessions, i.e., on Sep. 1st to 3rd, 2020.

Duration

The panel occupies one conference time-slot, i.e., 1h30.

Public information

The following information will be made public:

  • Proposer’s Name
  • Proposer’s Institution
  • Proposer’s CV
  • Panel Title
  • Motivation and Context
  • Questions
  • Participants List
