The content in this section is meant to provide an overview of the session types for the purposes of brainstorming and generating ideas around potential submissions. Please refer to Preparing and Formatting Your Proposal Document for more detail on how to prepare your proposal for these various options before submission. Please keep in mind the four key submission rules: the Live Supervision Rule, the Rule of Three, the Diversity of Affiliation Rule, and the Ownership Rule when planning for your submission (see Eligibility for more information about these rules).
All sessions except Posters can be submitted as either 50-minute or 80-minute sessions (posters must be 50 minutes). Please note that 50-minute sessions are much preferred in terms of scheduling. Fewer 80-minute session slots are available. Two 80-minute sessions should bring the equivalent value of three 50-minute sessions (i.e., an 80-minute session should be at least 50% better than an equivalent 50-minute session to justify its time on the schedule). If the content of your session can reasonably fit in a 50-minute session, it is strongly recommended you request that length when submitting.
