Presentation Types:

A symposium is a formal meeting at which experts present and discuss a particular topic. Information about different aspects of the topic considering the best evidence and state of art should be provided within the symposium. The speakers should prepare proper slides to assist their presentation within the specified time limits.

A meeting at which a group of people engage in intensive discussion and activity on a particular subject or project, by emphasizing on exchange of ideas and the demonstration, and application of techniques, skills, etc. Workshop presenters may have a short presentation but most of the time should be used for group discussions relevant to the workshop topic and at the end the result of the discussions should be reported.

Oral Presentation:
Participants will be given the opportunity to present their research in short oral presentations. Each session will consist of presentations around the same subject. The duration of oral presentations will be announced at a later stage.

Poster Presentation and one-slide presentations:
Participants will be given the opportunity to present their research in poster presentations. Poster size and poster display sessions will be announced at a later stage. There will also be a limited possibility for the best posters to be presented as 1-slide presentations in specific sessions.
