Session Moderators

Session Moderator Instructions & Conference Duties

General Information

  • All sessions will have two Session Moderators.
  • On average, sessions will have about 8 presentations.
  • There are three types of sessions. They are: plenary sessions, regular oral sessions, and poster sessions.
  • Session Moderators are not required to submit reviewer nominations for manuscript submissions/peer review, however, you are welcome to make suggestions of reviewers if you are inclined to be of help to the Technical Editors.
  • Session Moderators must complete the Session Moderator Report and return it to the Speaker Preparation/Ready Room (Room 322B).
  • If a scheduled presentation has no-show presenters and the presentation has to be canceled (e.g. was not given), the corresponding manuscript, if submitted, will not be considered for peer review and published in the ASC 2022 special edition of the IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity (TAS). The authors will be referred to make a submission to the regular issue of the TAS.

The instructions below outline your responsibilities in regard to managing the session.

Session Moderators for ORAL SESSIONS have several responsibilities.

Prior to the session start:

  • Please go to the Speaker Preparation/Ready Room (Room 322A) prior to the session to check whether all presentations have been submitted.
  • Please go to the Speaker Preparation/Ready Room (Room 322B) to pick up your Session Moderator Report(s) that you are asked to complete after your session and return to the Speaker Preparation Room (Room 322B).
  • Take 5 – 10 minutes prior to the session to familiarize yourself with lighting controls, computer, laser pointer, slide controls, microphones, and the general layout of the room (viewing angles, doors, noise, etc).
  • If there are any issues, please advise the conference staff.
  • Take a roll-call of all speakers.
  • PowerPoint tip: F5 will start the presentation, ESC exits.
  • Acrobat tip: Ctrl – L will enter full-screen mode, ESC exits.

Beginning of and during sessions:

  • Announce the title of the session.
  • Introduce yourselves and explain the ground rules:
    • Invited oral = 25 min (warn at 23) + 5 min for questions. Contributed oral = 12 min (warn at 10) + 3 min for questions.
  • You should introduce the presenting author and the title of each presentation.
  • Be polite but firm when enforcing these guidelines: Stand, ask the speaker to conclude. Keep control of the session time!
  • At your discretion, talks may encroach into question time, but then you should defer questions to private discussion.
  • Ask your own questions to encourage participation in Q&A from all speakers
  • Every presentation must be exactly as scheduled. If a speaker does not show on time for his/her presentation, the next speaker shall not begin the presentation until the scheduled time. Moderators may fill the time before the next presentation starts by allowing more questions or initiating discussion on the subject of the session.
  • Make sure the to end the session on time.
  • Monitor noise, audience, etc.
  • The two chairs can alternate this task.
  • Complete and return the Session Moderator Report to the Speaker Preparation/Ready Room (Room 322B). Check off presentations as they are given. Also estimate the audience size. This information must be returned to the Speaker Preparation/Ready Room.
  • PLEASE! Do not let anyone walk away with the laser pointer!

POSTER SESSIONS do not require introduction of the authors or of the presentations.

  • Please go to the  Speaker Preparation/Ready Room (Room 322B) to pick up your Session Moderator Report(s) and return the completed report to the Speaker Preparation/Ready Room  (Room 322B) after your session.
  • Session Moderators are asked to record any posters that were not presented. One of the authors must be present at most, if not all, times with the poster presentation.
  • Walk the session multiple times. Note that in some cases, an author may need to attend to more than one poster, and thus might not be present during your first survey, so you may have to return later. Poster presenters have been instructed by Conference Management to leave a note on their posters to say when they will return. Feel free to remind the attendees of this request.
  • Posters that have been mounted but do not have an attendant, or posters that are missing entirely, must be recorded on the Session Moderator Report.

Session Moderator Reports – Drop Off

Session Moderator reports are due to the Speaker Preparation/Ready Room (Room 322B) immediately following your session (preferably) or at the end of the day of your assigned session(s).

ELEVATE - DEI Panel Plenary Speakers

The Applied Superconductivity Educational Foundation recognizes and is strongly committed to the significance and importance of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. This year we have created an interactive DEI event featuring a panel of speakers to address the relevant topics brought forward from the superconducting community during our last event. These include: Unconscious bias; building awareness; achieving purposeful integration of this awareness into your professional practice; Communication and conflict management; engagement of members of your organization. We feel it is especially relevant to include in our discussion the influence of health, well-being and geo-political environment on diversity and inclusion. A pre-recorded talk will be released prior to the event to stimulate discussion and attendees will be given the opportunity to ask questions and interact directly with the in-person panel members.

Our Three Panelists are:

Dr. Tannaz Farrahi
Postdoctoral Associate at the University of Colorado, Boulder

ELEVATE - Early Career Plenary Speakers

In the frame of the ELEVATE Program, for the purpose of promoting professional & leadership development, the Early Career Plenaries event has been organized at the 2022 Applied Superconductivity Conference. This event follows the line traced by successful Young Scientist Plenary events at past Applied Superconductivity and Magnet Technology conferences, offering to early career scientists that are contributing significantly to developments in applied superconductivity, the prestigious opportunity to illustrate with short plenary talks their achievements or vision for future directions in our field. The early career scientists will be selected among recommendations made by the Program Committee, to have demonstrated outstanding, significant potential in the field of superconductivity and have gained the recognition and interest of other scientists in the community. The organizing committee believes that this addition to the plenary sessions gives the entire applied superconductivity community exposure to the novel thoughts, approaches and unexplored paths that these early career scientists can deliver.

The Early Career Plenary session is taking place on Wednesday, October 26, 2022, from 9:00 – 10:00 AM.

Our Early Career Plenary Speakers are:

Content Organization

  • Plan one slide per minute: 8 to 12 slides for Contributed Oral, and up to 25 slides per Invited Oral.
  • Carefully budget your time. Allocate at least one minute to describe the problem clearly enough for the audience to appreciate the value of your contribution.
  • Make sure the audience walks away understanding the five things any listener to a presentation really cares about:
    • What is the problem and why?
    • What has been done about it?
    • What is the presenter doing (or has done) about it?
    • What additional value does the presenter’s approach provide?
    • Where do we go from here?


  • Select a Sans-serif fonts: Arial or Helvetica. Avoid Serif fonts such as Times New Roman: the Serif fonts are more difficult to read.
  • Select font size to be visible over the whole room. We recommend font 24. Do not use fonts less than 18 points.
  • Consider font embedding to ensure that characters display properly.
  • Use larger fonts to indicate importance.
  • Use different sizes and styles (e.g., bold) for impact. Avoid italicized fonts as these are difficult to read quickly.
  • Avoid long sentences, Avoid abbreviations and acronyms. Limit punctuation marks.
  • No more than six lines per slide, and no more than 6-8 words per line.
  • Do not use all caps except for titles.

Design and Graphical Images

  • Include only necessary information: Content should be self-evident.
  • Keep the background consistent and subtle.
  • Use one or two large images rather than several small images.
  • Limit the tables to four rows/columns for readability.
  • Charts: The number of curves should be four or less. Label axes, curves and captions clearly using readable letters, font 18 or larger.
  • Limit the number of colors on a single screen.
  • Keep the design clean and uncluttered. Leave empty space around the text and graphical images.
  • Limit the number of graphical images on each slide.
  • Avoid sound effects.
  • Minimize animation.
