5. Clinical and Research Symposia
Symposia include multiple presentations on a single or related clinical or research area.
Generally, symposia will consist of a Convenor/Organiser, Chair, Individual Presenters, and a Discussant (optional)
They will be scheduled for either 60 or 90 minute sessions
There should be a maximum of 4-5 speakers per symposium (including discussant).
To ensure we receive adequate information, all submitted Symposia should have a symposium abstract of approximately 500 words. This should be a general description of the overall symposium, including the names of at least 3 presenters. If you wish, then within this word-limit, you can provide a short summary of each speaker’s topic.
However, at this stage, we do not require the individual abstracts for each speaker. These will be requested if the submission is accepted.
The name and contact details of the symposium convenor/organiser must be provided. This individual accepts responsibility for ensuring that all speakers provide individual abstracts, when requested. They must also ensure that speakers register and communicate as required, practical information to the scientific committee as well as individual speakers in the symposia

Please note that for space and production reasons only the first three authors will appear in the Congress programme. However, full authorship will appear in the electronic abstract book; up to a maximum of 7 authors. If there are more than 7 authors then please acknowledge them within your presentation.
