This format allows presenters to give a 20-minute oral presentation (inclusive of Q&A) of their research. The Scientific Committee will review and group the submissions into paper sessions, each of which will include four presentations. Submissions for paper presentation may also be considered for poster presentation, unless the author(s) opt out of this option.

Paper Presentations

This format allows for interactive discussions between presenters and attendees. Presenters must be present during their respective sessions, during the designated time, to respond to the questions of the attendees. 

Poster Presentations

In this format, a Symposium Chair invites 3-4 presenters to share studies focused on a similar topic. The Chair is responsible for coordinating the group and introducing the speakers during the sessions. Towards the end of the session, the different presentations are discussed either by the Symposium Chair or by an invited Discussant.
