Preparing Contributions to the Scientific Program

Oral presentations
Individual oral presentations will be aggregated by the Program Committee into themed panels. Each presentation will be allotted 20-25 minutes (this includes time for discussion).

Submitting a symposium requires the proposer (organizer or “chair”) to organize multiple presentations around a central topic. Session length will vary, depending on the number of proposed presentations within each symposium (no more than five, including the Discussant). Individual presentations will be approximately 20 minutes including time for discussion and questions.
