Paper and Poster Submissions
Individual Paper and Poster Presentations
Individually submitted abstracts for paper presentations will be reviewed for scientific merit and a decision will be made to accept or reject it based on independent ratings by two reviewers. Highly rated individual papers will be considered by the Scientific Committee for presentation in a 90 minute Paper Session composed of up to 4 Individual Paper Presentations that are thematically related, each presented for 15 minutes. Individual papers that are highly rated but cannot be accepted for a Paper Session (either because there are not 4 related papers on the topic or the maximum number of paper sessions has been reached) will become Individual Poster Presentations if submitters have indicated that they would like to present the research as a poster if it cannot be presented as an oral paper.
Posters are individual, free-standing research presentations. They are the appropriate format when material can be explained briefly, is suited for graphic or visual presentation, and/or the presenter would benefit from high levels of interaction and discussion.
Individuals may submit proposals for up to two presentation roles. Presenting roles are defined as:
- First author of a symposium paper
- First author of an individual poster or paper
- The roles of Chair and Discussant do not count as presenting roles
- A chair of a symposium making a presentation counts as an author.
- Any role in the Invited Program does not count as a presenting role
