Symposia Proposals

A symposium is a focused session in which individual speakers present their research on a common issue. Symposia should have the dual goals of providing diversity of perspective and integrating those perspectives into a meaningful whole.

A symposium includes a chair, up to four presenters, and a discussant (optional). Symposia are scheduled in 80-minute time slots and should allow for discussion among presenters and the audience.

We encourage participants to prepare and propose symposia in their field of expertise:
