Thank you for agreeing to be a Designer/IP Track Session Chair at DAC 2017! This Session Chair Resource Center is designed to help guide you through the slide review process and pre-conference preparation.
Chairing a Research Session? Please click here to view our Research Session Chairs Resource Center.
As a Designer/IP Track Session Chair and senior member of the technical community, we are relying on you to review and provide constructive feedback on the technical content of the presentation slides for each speaker in your session. This has an enormous impact on the quality of the session. Slides will be available online for your review on Thursday, May 25, and you will receive email instructions prior to that date regarding how to access the slide review system. Please contact Jackie McIntosh if you have login issues.
In addition to content, kindly pay attention to style issues, such as:
A formal slide review is not required for invited Designer/IP Track Sessions —Session Chairs are free but not required to coordinate an informal review directly with the presenters from their individual sessions, if desired.
All DAC Session Chairs are entitled to a discounted full-conference registration rate. Robin Albright, DAC Registration Coordinator, will send an email to all Session Chairs with instructions on how to register. You may contact Robin Albright with registration questions.
All Session Chairs and speakers are required to attend the Speaker’s Breakfast. Please join your DAC colleagues to receive important last minute information regarding set up for the session. Please attend the day of your session:
