A minisymposium consists of four 25-minute presentations, with an additional five minutes for discussion after each presentation. Prospective minisymposium organizers are asked to submit a proposal consisting of a title, a description (up to 300 words), and a list of speakers and titles of their presentations to the Program Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org
It is recommended that a minisymposium organizer make the first presentation. Each minisymposium speaker should submit an abstract by using the online system via the link below.
The Program Chair will assign reviewers to minisymposium proposals. Preference will be given to proposals that explore further the topics presented by our keynote speakers. It is also preferred that not all speakers in a proposed minisymposium come from the same organization. The number of minisymposia may be limited to keep balance in conference sessions.
Contributed Presentations in Poster Format (Including Demos)
Contributed presentations in poster format are invited in all areas consistent with the conference themes. A poster format involves the use of visual aids for mounting poster board(s) on an adjustable easel. We can provide up to two easels per poster presentation. Alternatively, we can also make available display frames for mounting 4’ x 6’ or 4’ x 8’ poster board. The posters will be displayed in a one-hour poster session during the day. To participate, each contributor must submit a title and a brief abstract with their Registration Form.
Up to four poster prizes will be awarded as chosen by conference participants-- e.g. “best overall poster”, “best student poster”. Laptop demos are encouraged The posters will be co-located in the poster-viewing area.
Contributed Presentations in Lecture Format
Contributed presentations in lecture format are also invited as an alternative to poster presentations. A lecture format consists of a 15-minute oral presentation with an additional 5 minutes for discussion. Each contributor must submit a title and an abstract by using the online system via the link at bottom. Acceptance of abstracts for contributed research presentations will be based on compatibility with the conference themes and space in the parallel sessions.
