SESSION FORMAT


There are three types of sessions for which proposals may be submitted:

 

1. Concurrent panel and round table sessions

 The concurrent panels and round table sessions are 75 minutes long and may include a maximum of 3 presenters, including the chair. The oral presentations are limited to 15 minutes. Concurrent or round table presentations are grouped according to topic or theme. At least 20 minutes should be for Q&A and group discussion. Authors are welcome to include visual supports such as paper handouts, computer slides, or digital displays to assist delivery of their oral presentation.

 

 2. Virtual Sessions

If you are unable to attend the conference in person, you may submit a proposal for a virtual presentation. Acceptance of a proposal for a virtual presenter is based on the same criteria established for in-person presenters.

 

3. Poster or Exhibits Session

The poster or exhibit session is for presenting preliminary results of work in progress or for projects that lend themselves to visual displays and representations. The poster or exhibit session will last 60 minutes. Displays may be posters (maximum 4x6 feet), digital/computer displays, artwork, or other visual media. Each display should include a brief abstract of the purpose and procedures of the work. Authors are encouraged to share handouts or copies of written materials. The conference will provide space for the poster or exhibit. The presenter must organize the posters, displays, handouts or other appropriate materials.
