Session Formats --
A proposal may be for a workshop, concurrent, round table, or poster session.
Session formats are defined as follows:
- Workshop - One hour and fifty-minute session designed to provide instruction with a HIGH degree of active participant involvement
- Concurrent - Fifty-minute session in which individuals present on a topic relevant to the field. As a reminder, we place high value on participant interaction.
- Roundtable - Fifty-minute session divided into two 25-minute presentations by each presenter, providing participants the opportunity to discuss a research project, either completed or work in progress, with two presenters, authors, and/or researchers. A more informal format than Concurrent Session.
- Poster - Fifty-minute session that visually displays a completed or "in progress" research study or a program/project. Poster sessions are designed to foster maximum interaction with the audience. Proposers(s) must be willing to construct a poster exhibit of high quality that can stand alone in conveying information. All poster sessions will be scheduled on Thursday, October 24, 2019. Attendees will circulate among the posters to discuss them with the presenter(s), who must be present.
