Note: the schedule for each session depends on the following situations and the chairs have the authority to finalize the time-lag:

(1) 4 keynote speeches × 30 minutes = 120 minutes, general discussion=40 minutes

(2) 4 presentations × 20 minutes = 80 minutes, group discussion=20 minutes

(3) 6 presentations × 20 minutes = 120 minutes, group discussion=30 minutes.
