Best Paper Awards

APIAR recognises outstanding contributions to research. There are four Best Papers awards for four streams. Best Papers are judged both on the merits of the written document and on the quality of their presentation at the conference. The awards serve to acknowledge the authors who receive them as leading researchers in Business, Education, ICT and Social Sciences. The awards also provide an incentive to authors to produce high-quality papers and present them in a lucid and compelling manner.

APIAR Best Paper Award recipients are selected through a two-prong process. The first step is a review of the full-length papers accepted for the conference. Review committee members of the conference rank these papers according to quality, relevance and originality, to determine the finalists for each award category. While selection as a finalist for an APIAR Best Paper Award is a notable achievement in itself, winners are then chosen from the finalists, according to the quality of their presentations. Presentation quality is judged according to the audience feedback collected at the conference.

Role of a Session Chair

  1. Introduction

    At the start of the session, briefly introduce yourself and explain the timing system to the audience, and as often during the session as you think necessary.

  2. Start on Time

    Start the session on time - announce the first presenter and the name of the paper, and start the timer.

  3. Check the Microphone

    If a microphone has been provided, then please ensure that this is working.

  4. Stick to the Schedule

    Please adhere to the time schedule listed in the schedule so that simultaneous sessions are as closely synchronized as possible. Many attendees move from session to session in order to hear specific presentations.

  5. Allotted Times

    The normal allotted time for every presentation is 20 minutes (15 minutes to present; 5 minutes for Q & A). During the 15 minutes presentation time, after the first 12 minutes there will be one bell just to alert the presenter that only three minutes are left and then after 15 minutes the final bell will be rung.

    Presenters must be asked to stop when their allotted time is up in a courteous but firm manner. Keep in mind that the session must end on time, and that the last speaker has just as much right to an audience as does the first speaker.

  6. Absent Presenter(s)
    Should a presenter fail to appear, call the next presenter and so on. 

  7. Session Problems

    If any problems arise that you are unable to handle while continuing to chair the session, either go, or immediately send, someone to the registration desk to alert the Meetings Manager of the problem.
