Panel discussions can be a highlight of any conference program, but only if they are properly planned.
At Heart Rhythm, a panel discussion is viewed as a discussion-focused question and answer session. This question and answer session can last the entire duration (start-to-finish) or during the last 15-30 mins of the session.
Session chair(s) would lead off the panel by putting questions directly to each of the panelists. The questions would be pre-determined and provided to the panelists in advance so they have the opportunity to think about them. Individuals with the Panelist role cannot upload PowerPoint presentations for their session.
