Registered participants with an active role in the Congress –presenters, chairs, discussants, and organizers– will be able to enter the session or sessions in which they participate –panel, roundtable, or workshop– through the LASA/Asia 2022 website. The following steps will guide you to find your session.
The Congress has 5 plenary sessions, one per day. Active participants –presenters, chairs, discussants, and organizers– of the plenary sessions must enter their session using the zoom link sent to their emails one hour before the session.
Yes. As an active participant in a LASA/Asia 2022 virtual session, you will receive one reminder email 1 hour before your session starts. This email will have the name and time of your session, as well as a direct link to the LASA/Asia 2022 website, where you can find your session.
The organizer's tasks occur primarily before the Congress begins. The organizer was responsible for assembling the session and confirming the participation of all, including the chair, the discussant, and the paper presenters or presenters without papers. The organizer should advise the LASA/Asia 2022 Secretariat promptly of any changes in the composition of the session.
The organizer should have communicated with session participants in advance of the Congress date to ensure that paper presenters delivered their written work to the designated discussant in a timely fashion.
The chair is responsible for ensuring that all the presenters and the discussant respect agreed time limits, and he or she coordinates the question-and-answer session with the audience after session members have concluded their presentations. To do so, the chair will be promoted to co-host at the beginning of each session.
It is suggested that the chair let the panelists and attendees know at the beginning of his/her participation when there will be space to make comments or ask questions. As co-hosts of a session, and in order to moderate the Q&A, chairs will be able to mute or unmute attendees to allow attendees to talk. Chairs as well as active participants are able to manage the raise hand feature, view all Q&A, and respond.
If the chair of the session assumes the role of co-host, the discussant’s and organizer’s tasks are the same as in a face-to-face Congress.
After the session time has elapsed, one hour and 30 minutes, the LASA host will close the session and start the next one.
The discussant should summarize key conclusions and identify issues for further discussion in the various papers presented by the session members. He or she might wish to situate the participants’ work within larger academic debates, but should not use the occasion to present a separate paper of her or his own.
LASA/Asia 2022 sessions will be hosted by a LASA designated host. The first task of the LASA designated host will be to start the session on time. At the beginning of each session, the LASA host will welcome the panelists and other participants and give the role of co-host to the chair of the session. If the chair is not present, the role of co-host may be assigned to the organizer, followed by the discussant, and lastly, to another panelist. For more information about the Zoom co-host role press here.
Note: Co-hosts cannot be assigned ahead of time. This is why the LASA designated host will assign the co-host during the first minutes of the session. The LASA host will remain connected during the session in order to help all participants with any technical issue they may encounter. After the session time has elapsed, one hour and 30 minutes, the LASA host will close the session and start the next one.
All the sessions and events are scheduled following the Eastern Time Zone of the United States (New York Time). The films of the Film Exposition are available to watch at any time during the four days of the Congress, February 15–19, 2022. See Congress Schedule.
