Instructions for Chairs

The durations of talks at CLMPST 2019

– Contributed talks and symposia talks: 30 minutes (including discussion)

– Invited lectures: 60 minutes (including discussion)

Rules for chairing contributed and symposia talk sessions:

1. All contributed papers are allotted 30 minutes in total (20-minute presentation + 10-minute dis­cussion). Please note that a few sessions might have vacant slots, but even for these sessions, presentations should follow the 30-minute format. (Presentations based on contributed papers should not exceed the maximum time of 30 minutes under any circumstances.)

2. The order of presentations within sessions should always follow the order published in the official CLMPST 2019 program. The chairs should always check the latest version of the CLMPST 2019 program before their session starts.

3. In the case of on-site cancellations, chairs are asked to provide a 30-minute break in place of the cancelled presentation. It is important that chairs take these breaks so that people who move between sessions do not miss presentations they wish to attend.

4. Should you be chairing a session in which you are also a speaker, please ask one of the other speakers of the session to chair your presentation when it is your turn to present.

5. The assistants will supply water for the speakers and provide technical assistance if needed. If you encounter any problems during the session, please contact them.

6. The speakers will either upload their presentations online in advance, or from their own USB flash drives before the session starts. If the speakers use their own computers, they are asked to check during the breaks that they can successfully connect the computer to the projector.

7. In the event that a chair is not present at the session, please apply a DIY approach and chair the session mutually amongst the presenting speakers.

Technical Assistance in the Conference Rooms

If you encounter any problems during the sessions, please contact the congress assistants, or the information desk (+420 607 786 670).

Arriving in Prague

Václav Havel Airport Prague
Public transport options from the airport (http://www.dpp.cz/en/):
Bus 119 from the airport to Nádraží Veleslavín metro station, line A (green line)
Bus 100 from the airport to Zličín metro station, line B (yellow line)

You are required to buy a ticket, either from a ticket machine at the bus stop or at an information desk at the airport. You may find a list of all fares at http://www.dpp.cz/en/fares-in-prague/. We recommend purchasing the 32 CZK ticket. Do not forget to validate your ticket: insert it in the yellow box inside the bus and wait until you hear it being stamped with the time. This buys you 90 minutes’ transport and the ticket remains valid even if you change to the metro or get on a tram.

Taxi companies operating from the airport are available at https://www.prg.aero/en/taxi.
Uber also operates in Prague.

Public transport from Prague main railway station (http://www.dpp.cz/en/):
