Presenters will be assigned a number and should be prepared to hang their poster within a 36 inch x 48 inch space.

Oral (Paper) Sessions consist of 3 to 4 approved presentations that have a similar theme and are assigned by the abstract reviewers. Each presenter will have approximately 15 minutes and time for questions during a 75-minute session. A moderator will assist with time keeping and facilitate discussion among participants.

Workshop Sessions highlight best practices using an interactive format and will take place during a 75-minute session. A description of demonstrated or effective strategies and programs are encouraged.

Symposium Sessions consist of 3 to 4 presentations that reflect a central theme during a 75- minute session. Symposium proposals should indicate the selected theme and the overall abstract should provide a summary of each proposed presentation.
