Session Chair Signup

Session chairs are responsible for introducing the speaker, and keeping the speaker to their time limit. It's a fun job. If you're going to be in the room for the talk anyway, you might as well sign up for the chair positio

Sign up is a pretty low tech affair for the time being. Within the next few days we'll have a fancy app up to make everything all nice and clean. In the meantime, if you'd like to chair any of these sessions, please edit the appropriate wiki cell like so: Really Great talk (Some person) (CHAIR: YOUR NAME

If you have any questions about this rather ad hoc process, email
