Speaker roles
What sort of speakers are there and what are their roles?

Keynote speaker
Keynote speakers present the first session or key session at the conference and receive the highest billing in all event marketing. Their role is to open the conference with a high-level speech that sets the tone for the whole event.

A chairman's role is to make a few opening remarks at the start of the sessions and symposium, introduce each speaker, field questions from the audience (asking a couple of his/her own if there are none from the floor) and keep everything to time. Chairman will be asked to make announcements to delegates and they remain on/near the stage throughout the day.

Session speaker
Individual speakers are required to prepare a 20–25 minutes presentation, with slides. They will be introduced by the chairman and then allowed to speak, free of interruption, for the allocated time slot, allowing for 5-10 minutes of questions from the audience at the end (which the chairman will facilitate).
