Panel Discussion

Please follow these requirements:

  • Panel discussions are planned to be 60 minutes in length.
  • 1 chair and between 4-5 speakers. The chair should not be one of the speakers.
  • The aim of a Panel discussion is to present a number of different views and robustly discuss them. The Chair will be responsible for generating and submitting key questions that the panellists will address AND to take questions from the audience.
  • The chair is responsible for submitting a brief description of the proposed panel (max. 250 words); between 4-5 names and affiliations of the contributing panellists and their role/s in the discussion; key questions that will be asked of the panellists to discuss. Please submit this as one file.
  • Submissions for panel discussion do not need to follow a standard abstract structure (see below).
    We hope to facilitate robust and lively discussion, so please consider the composition of the proposed panel to represent different viewpoints or disciplines.
  • Prior to submission, the chair should ask for the preliminary availability of every speaker in their session.
  • Only the chair will receive notification of the final Scientific Committee decision, and they will be responsible for communicating the result to all other speakers.
