Thank you for chairing a session at the 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM), of the Australian & New Zealand Burn Association (ANZBA).

The program details can be found in ASM App and on your printed Pocket Program.

Below are some tips to assist you with the chairing process.

Most importantly, PLEASE ENSURE YOU START AND FINISH ALL PRESENTATIONS ON TIME and keep to the order in the program.


Invited Speaker Presentations:
Invited speakers have been allocated 20 minutes (15 minutes presentation & 5 minutes questions).  Please double check the program to confirm the timing.

Free paper only sessions:
Ten minutes have been allowed in the program for each paper: 8 minute presentation & 2 minute question time.

Impact presentations:
Selected ePoster authors have been selected to present a 2 minute Impact Presentation highlighting important content from their poster.

Please let the audience know that there is no question time allocated to these sessions. Please direct the audience to view the ePosters on the screens at the ASM or on the ASM app or to contact the presenter directly for more information.

Panel Discussions:
Questions and comments can be submitted and liked by the audience through Sli.Do. These can be directed to the panel through the moderator and session Chair to guide the panel discussion.


This year an online audience participation tool is being implemented.

It allows the event organisers to crowd-source the most popular questions for Invited Speaker Q&A sessions and get instant feedback via live polls during the ASM debate as well as allow the audience to vote for the best papers from each of the forums.

During the presentations the audience will be able to log on and submit their questions which other audience members can see and can like. Delegates have the option to assign their name +/- affiliation to their question or submit their question anonymously. The most popular questions will be directed to the speaker by the 1st Chair at the end of the presentation.  Delegates will be invited to raise any unanswered questions with the speakers during the session breaks.

Sli.Do will be introduced by one of the Sli.Do moderators at the beginning of each of the forums as well as on the first morning of the ASM.

Each session where Sli.Do is being used will have a Sli.Do moderator assigned who will monitor questions and polls and have the screen with audience questions at hand for you to see.

What if Sli.Do doesn’t work?
There will be a manned Q&A cordless microphone available as a backup only. This will be implemented by the Sli.Do moderator assigned to the session.
