Explain to the speaker that you will show them a sign at half way (five minutes before the end of these 10 minutes), then two minutes before, and then after the 10 minutes are over.

Contact me with ORAL (resp. POSTER) in the subject, followed by your paper id (for example: POSTER #134). I advise you to look at the presentation FAQ before sending your question.
