As announced the academic programme will take place during the afternoon always with two sets (A and B) except on Wednesday 30 July, with only one set (Set A). Set A lasts 90 minutes and Set B 60 minutes.
The Local Organising Committee carefully grouped and allocated the abstracts to each day according to the subthemes - whenever it was possible.
DAILY THEMES AND SUB-THEMES
All presentations should be in English. No other languages will be accepted.
The Sub-Plenaries (SP) are oral presentations with audiovisual support.
The presenters have 30 minutes of oral delivery, followed by a 20 minute discussion prepared by a discussant nominated by the Scientific Committee.
Afterwards the audience will have about 30 minutes to dialogue with the presenters and the Chair will have 10 minutes to summarize the main issues brought to attention. Exceptions to this framework are duly marked on the Programme.
Panels of Papers (PP) are a kind of contribution where the authors, leaded by a Chair of their choice, assembled three papers on the same theme. They will have 20 minutes to present, followed by a 15 minute discussion delivered by a discussant nominated by the Scientific Committee. The remaining 15 minutes will be used to dialogue with the audience.
The Paper Presentations Sessions (PA) may last 90 minutes if they have three presenters (Set A) or 60 minutes if they have two presenters (Set B). Each presenter will have 20 minutes of oral delivery. The time remaining will be for the discussion with the audience coordinated by a Chair appointed by the Scientific Programme Team. Every author was advised to bring some kind of written support (handouts, power point) preferentially the whole text.
Workshops (WS) have a more experiential contribution and presenters are supposed to encourage the audience to share thoughts and experiences in a more informal way. Workshops may last just one Set (A or B) or can go across the two sessions (Set A + Set B).
Some workshops cater for up to 20 people and others cater for 20 to 40 participants.
The Posters (PO) are not allocated in any particular set as they will be on exhibition throughout the Symposium.
The Poster Exhibition will take place daily from 29 July to 1 August, from 10.30 to 17.15h on the second floor.
The Best Poster - according to the evaluation of a jury named by the SC: Angela Sordano, João Melo and Steinar Lorentzen - will be awarded with the amount of 250 euros.
The Posters Award winner will be announced after Friday´s Keynote Lecture on 1 August.
All poster presentations should be in English. No other languages will be accepted.
Poster presenters are kindly requested to mount and dismount their posters during the period mentioned below.
Symposium staff will be available to assist with poster fixing materials.
Please note that all posters which have not been removed by the author until 17.00h on Friday, 1 August, will automatically be discarded.
Poster mounting timetable
Supervision Groups (SU) are up to 10 participants and are all in Set A (90 minutes). The Supervisors were invited by the Scientific Committee for their knowledge, training skills and clinical expertise. They come from different countries and societies. These groups give the participants the possibility of sharing clinical work with colleagues from several countries and experience different ways of supervision. The participants who enrolled online in these groups should be prepared to present clinical material and/or some specific supervision situations. In case there are many members who wish to present the supervisor and the group will choose in loco the presentations. Each supervisor will conduct one group for one day only. Depending on the participants’ interest in these groups there may be one to three Supervision Groups working every day.
Participants are invited to enrol according to their preference in one of these events by writing their name in the sheets.
Suplenaries and panel or paper presentations are of open attendance.
