DIMACS Workshop Organizer's Guide:
Time Management

Workshop organizers are expected to manage the workshop schedule.
1. Opening
Always start on time; this respects those who showed up on time.

2. Establish Ground Rules
Tell the speaker how you will indicate
If necessary, interrupt the speaker and end the talk to keep within the time plus any margin you may previously have decided to allow.

3. Closing
Always end meetings on time.
