Paper Presenter Guidelines

Format of Presentation

  • Moderated breakout sessions
  • 2-3 paper presenters per breakout session, led by a moderator
  • A PowerPoint presentation is required of each presenter
  • Presentations should be engaging and highlight the main points of research


  • Each presenter will have:
    • 5 minutes to introduce themselves and their research
    • 15 minutes to present key research findings and information most relevant to the audience of international educators
    • 10 minutes to answer audience questions
    • Moderator discretion is used if they need to interrupt presentations to clarify points or answer audience questions.
    • Out of courtesy to other presenters, all presenters will be timed and held to these time limits by their moderator.


  • Presenters are put in contact with their moderator well in advance of the conference to discuss all the details of their session.
  • A dedicated representative of Chicago ICE will be present during presentations to assist with technology or any other needs.

Technology Needs

  • The Chicago ICE Planning Committee with work with each presenter before the conference to make sure all technology needs are met.
  • Presenters are encouraged to email Chicago ICE their final PowerPoint presentations before the conference to avoid any last-minute problems. We will have the presentation ready in the breakout session room.
