1. How is the presenters' order generated?
The presenters' order is generated from the presenters' list in a FIFO manner.

2. Who is responsible if I can not present at the scheduled time?

3. What should I do if I can not present at the scheduled time?
First, let the organizer know your situation, as early as possible. Second, contact other presenters on the list and see if they are willing to swap with you.

4. What happens if a new event takes place and we have to change the schedule?
To minimize disturbance, the conflited slot will be moved to the rear of the list after confirmed with the originally scheduled presenter, while all the other schedules remain unchanged.

5. I have a question not listed here...
