  • Moderator Guidelines
  • Each live session and symposia on the agenda will be managed by 2 staff members: a Technical Producer and a Staff Administrator.
  • Technical Producer will initiate the Zoom session, act as the host, and will run the meeting according to a pre-arranged agenda where the specified presentations will be played in order from their previously recorded video files.
  • Technical Producer will enable the cameras/microphones of the presenters so they may participate during the live question and answer period.
  • Attendees will not be able to enable their cameras or microphones during live sessions.
  • Chat will be offered during each live session and will be moderated by a person designated by AAPM|COMP. This will allow questions from the audience to be readily available to the faculty.
  • Presenters and moderators will be required to be present in the Virtual Meeting Room 15 minutes before the beginning of their allotted time to give enough time to get prepared and correct any technical issues.
  • AAPM|COMP presenters and moderators will be able to communicate directly with the Staff Administrator who will then communicate with the Technical Producer for each session using chat. This chat will not be visible to attendees or other presenters.
