Panels Submission Guidelines

ER 2009 solicits proposals for panel sessions related to the conference topics about which there is controversy and thus a need for public discussion. Panel proposals should specify the questions/issues the panel will discuss and should include a list of proposed panelists. We strongly encourage panels that have a mixture of academic and industry panelists. We expect that a range of viewpoints will be represented in the panel session. The role of the panel moderator is to state the initial relevant issues and moderate the panel session. Each panelist will then make a short presentation of his/her position. The moderator will then direct a discussion/debate among the panelists and encourage audience interaction. The moderator should manage the time so as to allow for ample audience participation.

Panels proposals should be submitted by email to the ER2009 panels chair:
