Oral paper presentations will have 15-minute time slots and be clustered by theme into sessions. Each session will include three to four individual presentations and time for questions from the audience. Submit abstract using Abstract Template.

Poster Presentations
Our 90-minute poster session provides an interactive forum for authors to discuss their work. Submissions may represent original empirical research, theoretical development, or reviews. Poster submissions should use the Abstract Template format

Panel Presentations
Panel presentations provide authors the option to organize a panel comprising three related presentations. Panel presentation sessions will be 90 minutes long, with 60 minutes for the presentation and 30 minutes for discussion. A panel proposal should use the Abstract Template format and must include an abstract summarizing the overall theme of the panel, as well as individual abstracts for each presentation included in the panel. Panel presentations that bring together experts for interactive discussions should describe questions that will be addressed by the panel.
