General Guidelines for NordMedia 2017 Conference Discussants  

– A discussant will be assigned to each accepted paper. The chair and the co-chairs of each division are collectively responsible for appointment of discussants. This should be done well in advance so that discussants have enough time to familiarize themselves with set papers and prepare their feedback and comments.   

– After each presentation the assigned discussant will have 5 minutes to present his or her comments. Then there will be 5 minutes reserved for general discussion.   

– The written copy of discussant’s comments to the presenter is not required though we encourage discussants to give their feedback also in writing.
