Presentation Types

Breakout Session - panel (30 min)
Breakout Sessions are intended for panel presentation format. Individuals or small groups collaborate to present a panel format on a topic of shared interests. This format will allow each presenter a limited time for individual comments followed by audience discussion and interaction.

Lightning Round (10 min, depending on the number of speakers)
A Lightning Round session will combine multiple presenters, each presenter giving a ten-minute, fast-paced talk with no interruptions. Lightning rounds are an opportunity to present an idea that will promote further discussion, sharing, and brainstorming with peers. Lightning Round presenters are strongly encouraged to also host a round table on their topic to engage in further discussion on their topic.

Round Table Discussions (30 min)
Round table Discussion sections are designed for small group discussion of specialized topics, with the presenter leading the discussion. Typically, several round table discussions are scheduled simultaneously in one large room, with no audiovisual use. Presenters of other session types may opt to also lead a round table as an opportunity to engage in more discussion on their topic.

Poster Session
Poster sessions will be presented in the vendor area, allowing presenters to engage with participants about their topic. Posters will remain up for the duration of the symposium so participants can view the poster during passing periods, but presenters should be prepared to stay with their poster during designated Vendor Times to engage in discussion and answer questions about their topic.
