Session types and formats

Symposium: the main building block of the scientific programme, each symposium is focussed on a specific topic and is composed of three presentations given by invited speakers, along with two presentations selected through the abstract submission process. After each presentation, there will be time for Q&A with the audience, moderated by a session chair or co-chairs.

Educational Session: as the name indicates, these are more didactic sessions where an expert is invited to give a 30-45 minute teaching lecture on a given subject. Each educational session includes two invited speakers presenting one after the other – the topics of their respective presentations can be linked to each other but can also be totally disconnected. The experts are requested to allow time for Q&A at the end of their lectures for discussion with attendees.

Meet the Expert: informal interactive sessions where an expert is invited to meet, connect and answer questions with participants on a given topic. The aim of these sessions is not to have a 1-hour presentation, but rather have a short presentation followed by a very lively discussion and Q&A session with participants around a specific topic.

Keynote Lecture: a renowned speaker is invited to give a presentation on a topic that is either of very high interest, highly controversial, ground-breaking or extremely relevant to attendees.

Career Discovery Session: dedicated to young researchers who are looking to boost their career by learning tips and tricks on different professional pathways. The session room will be organized with roundtables, each focused on a given topic and expertise, and participation will be limited to 9 participants per table per time slot.

Pre-registration for the Career Discovery Programme and other sign-up opportunities will be made available in April – May 2022.
