Learn about the featured speakers, compelling symposia, cross-cutting theme programs, student events, and other programming here.

Symposium– A symposium is a focused session in which individual speakers present their research on a common issue. A symposium includes a chair, three to four presenters, and a discussant (optional). Symposia should have the dual goals of providing diversity of perspective and integrating those perspectives into a meaningful whole.

Poster– Posters offer the opportunity for individual presenters to present data and have substantive discussions with interested colleagues. The audience circulates among the posters, stopping to discuss research of particular interest to them. Authors present their research using a visual medium with key information displayed free-standing bulletin board.

For more information about submitting your research please see the Submission Rules and Guidelines page.
