Talks at the EAJ Educational Workshop: 60 or 90 minutes

Thank you for your co-operation and contribution towards making the conference a success.

Chairmen guidance

Please agree with the speaker beforehand how you will signal that they have approached their time limit. Sessions that overrun cause catering problems, cut breaks short and delay evening arrangements.
