=== Open Call for Proposals ===  
Your presentation format is entirely up to you.

Each presentation slot is 50 minutes, except tutorials which have a double slot of one hour and 40 minutes. It is expected that your talk will go for approximately 40 minutes, with 10 minutes for questions, unless you prefer to take questions during your presentation. For tutorials, it is assumed that questions will be asked during the tutorial rather than at the end. Room monitors will be stationed in each conference room and will help guide you
