Each symposium must be themed around a single, unified topic and should include 3 or 4 oral presentations organized by a chairperson (who can also be a presenter). The total duration of the symposium should not exceed 1 hour and 15 minutes.  The chairperson is responsible for submitting the symposium proposal and for recruiting speakers.  Symposia on current topics and of a multidisciplinary nature are encouraged.
