Abstracts in the following categories are invited:

Paper Presentation Individual paper presentations describe original research by the author. Twenty minutes is allotted for the paper and ten for discussion.

Panel Discussion is a forum for interactive discussion of a topic among a panel of experts. Typically, a panel of two or three speakers makes introductory remarks. The audience is then invited to make comments and question the panel. Panel discussions are scheduled for 60 minutes and run concurrently with other sessions.

Workshops provide training on a specific skill, technique or process and may involve one or more instructors. Workshops are intended to emphasize learning through participation, discussion and “hands-on” activities. Workshop organizers must specify an upper limit on attendance. Workshops are scheduled for 90 minutes.
