Deadline: November 14, 2011
A Symposium is the ideal presentation format to discuss important issues and emerging trends in the industry. Symposia are presented periodically throughout the general sessions and should last no longer than 45 minutes (including time for a Q&A). Debates, panel discussions and audience interaction work well for these sessions.
