Session Chairs - How can I volunteer to help

For the main conference talks on the schedule from Wednesday to Friday you might notice a funny line of text on some of the talks.

It says "Volunteer!". If you click on it, you can sign up to be a "Session Chair". Session chairing is a small but very important volunteer role, where you introduce presenters, keep presentations to time, and help facilitate Q&A alongside one of our registered volunteers.

Each "Session" goes for two talks in the same room, between two breaks. You'll get to see the entirety of the two talks that you sign up to chair.

If you've any questions about this, feel free to send me an e-mail, otherwise, go forth and sign up for sessions!

Question: Will we receive an email reminder for the sessions which we have volunteered for?
