EDGE Jamboree 2013: The Rules of the Game




Rules for presenters:
Each presenter has 30 minutes for the presentation including questions from the audience. The authors should make sure that the assigned discussant is provided with a copy of the paper in due time before the Jamboree (at least two weeks). Copies of the papers will not be provided by the local organization in Cambridge. Each participant should download the papers before coming to Cambridge and each presenter should bring a few copies of his or her paper to the conference.

Presenters should submit a pdf version of their papers by email to Pontus Rendahl ( before August 15, 2013.

Rules for discussants:
Each discussant has 10 minutes for their discussion. Being a discussant is a service to the profession and an extremely good exercise in reading and scrutinizing someone elses work. A good discussion is not necessarily critical (although many are), but may instead succinctly summarise the author's work in an elegant and transparent way such that non-obvious flaws and weaknesses are exposed. A good discussion takes time to prepare, but it will add to your reputation in your field. It is time well spent.
