A block of time will be made available for poster presenters to discuss their projects with interested conference participants. Specific guidelines for posters will be provided upon acceptance.
Symposia will be allocated 3-hour blocks. Organizers of symposia may divide their time as they choose, but some of the allocated time should be for opening and closing remarks, panel discussions (if included), and extended audience response. Organizers of symposia must liaise on behalf of all their symposium participants with the congress program committee.
