Program

Starting a year in advance, the Steering and Scientific Committees oversee the development of the scientific and social program. The Steering Committee develops conference objectives, learning objectives, and conference tracks that shape the entire program through a range of session types, including:

  • Plenary Sessions, planned by the Steering Committee, are keynote addresses or panel discussions that take place over the course of the conference on topics that appeal to all delegates;
  • Collaborator Sessions, planned by each collaborating organization, align with the overall conference objectives and each organizational mandate;
  • Workshops and Symposia, chosen by the Scientific Committee based on the open call for submissions and the results of the peer review process, provide delegates with concrete skills and insights on various topics;
  • Oral presentations, selected based on the results of the open call process, are 12 minutes in length followed by a 3-minute discussion period. They are presented in groups of five based on conference tracks; and
  • Poster presentations, selected based on the results of the open call process, are displayed throughout the conference and are the focus of a special poster and networking reception.
