Conference Code of Conduct

Suggestions on Format
Introduction: Please keep these to 5 minutes. And the audience should refrain from essentially all questions.
Clarifying Questions: Welcome at all times. If you do not understand something, it is highly likely that other people do not as well, so please ask.
Deeper Questions: These typically have much higher value added when brought up after the main results have been given, so that the audience understands the framework the author is using and the author has narrowed down the question to a precise one.
Anticipatory Questions: Questions such as ``Will this feature be important’’ or ``Are you going to look at x’’ are typically very low value added. It is much better to let the author put up the results and then ask such questions.
