Concurrent Sessions and Shared Concurrent Sessions are sessions that present research, theory, concepts, and practices. Concurrent sessions are 45 minutes long and consist of either one presentation for the full 45 minutes, or in shared sessions, two presentations of related topics.
Roundtable Discussions provide an opportunity to discuss research in progress, research issues, programs, theory in practice, or other relevant topics with a small group in an informal setting around a table or in circle of chairs. There will be several roundtable sessions scheduled in a room at the same time. These sessions are 45 minutes in length.
Poster Presentations provide an opportunity to present and discuss one main research theme, program, practice, or relevant topic in an informal setting, somewhat like an exhibit hall or information fair. A good poster session centers on one main theme, presents useful information, and stimulates discussion. Presenters prepare a display that captures their topic and ideas in easily understood printed text and graphics. Presenters may use tabletop displays, or create a board no larger than 30"x40." Poster presentations and judging will be held on Wednesday, October 3 with winners announced at the Awards Luncheon the following day.
PechaKucha (NEW FORMAT) are sessions that provide a concise and fast-paced presentation consisting of 20 slides shown for 20 seconds each.
