Session Proposal Format:

Submissions of Proposals for Sessions by organizations, programs or an individual on behalf of a group of presenters.

  • Symposia

    • Purpose: To provide a focused presentation on a topic by several (2-4) presenters, where each individual presentation is followed by a question and answer period with the audience.
    • Time/Format: A total of 90 minutes, no more than 30 minutes by a single presenter, a brief period of questions and comments from the audience and responses by the lecturer.
  • Panel discussion

    • Purpose: To present diverse perspectives and approaches to educational subjects or issues, especially those requiring collaborative work from multiple departments or institutions.
    • Time/Format: A total of 90 minutes for presentations by 3-4 panelists. The goal is to have short presentations (no more than 15 minutes each) and the majority of the time having a moderated discussion between the panel and audience.
  • Workshop

    • Purpose: To provide a focused, skills-oriented interactive experience for learners, which will allow them to take home specific tools or information.
    • Time/Format: A total of 90 minutes for the workshop by 1-3 presenters. It is critical to distinguish the workshop activities, make them experiential, and clarify how they differ from a discussion group.

 

Abstract Format:

  • Oral Abstract Presentations

    • An individual wishing to give an oral presentation on their work relevant to the conference topic may submit an abstract that will be evaluated for possible inclusion in the program. 
    • Time/Format: Each oral abstract presentation will be limited to 10 minutes followed by a 5 minute question and answer period with the audience. 
  • Poster Abstract Presentations

    • An individual wishing to give a poster presentation on their work relevant to a conference theme must submit an abstract that will be evaluated for possible inclusion in the program. 
    • Time/Format: Posters will be displayed for the duration of the conference. A 1.5-hour poster session will be scheduled to allow presenters to discuss their work with attendees.
