Invited symposium presenters guidelines and structure

Submission Guidelines

The organizers will invite a few prominent scholars to develop a symposium on a critical topic. Please do not use this format for your presentation unless you have been invited.

Submission process

Send your submission before January 31 to our Abstract Submission Platform at http://www.iaccp2019.com

Important dates

Deadline for the submission of the invited symposium including title, contents and participants’ documentation is January 31, 2019.

Language

Submissions shall be done in English. In the case that you are proposing an activity in Spanish, please send it in both languages. Please remember that the number of presentations in Spanish is limited.

Symposium Format

An Invited Symposium is designed to be a focused session in which distinguished speakers present on a common theme, issue or question. As a major event of the Congress the invited symposium should target themes of particular relevance and able to attract a broad audience. It would usually consist of a chairperson briefly introducing the topic and providing an introduction to the session. This would usually be followed by 4 to 6 individual speakers (ideally 3 from different affiliations or countries), and ending with concluding remarks by a discussant. Every effort should be made to ensure close interaction between the speakers and to provide new and non-overlapping presentations. There should be opportunity for the audience to ask questions to presenters and for an exchange of views.

Regular invited symposia will run for 90 minutes. With 6 or more speakers and a discussant, the symposium can also be planned as a double session (150 min).

Submission rules

All presenters and discussants are required to register at the Congress. The congress registration fees will be waived for the organizer of an invited symposium, but other participants/presenters should pay registration fees.

Disclaimer

The invitation to submit a symposium does not constitute an offer to pay travel, accommodation or registration costs associated with the Congress.

By submitting a symposium the organizer:

  • Confirms that presentations have not been published before.
  • Grants the Organizing Committee permission to publish the abstract in hard copy or electronic format.
  • Grants a non-exclusive right to publish, reproduce, distribute, display and store the abstract worldwide in all forms, formats and media now known or as developed in the future, including print, electronic and digital forms. Organizers will retain the copyright of abstracts, although authors will be entitled to the moral rights of the abstract.
  • The symposium summary cannot contain more than 3000 characters (blank spaces and punctuation are included. Title and authors’ list and affiliation are not included).
