The Symposium will include three types of presentations: briefings, panels, and posters. Briefings are 15-minute descriptions of an innovative practice, project, or research activity. There will be morning and afternoon briefing sessions.

Authors can organize panels of speakers to present and discuss a theme or a topic. Panels are typically one hour in length.

Posters are exhibits describing a practice, project, or research activity. Posters will be viewable throughout the day, and there will be a lightning talk during which presenters will highlight their projects. In addition, poster presenters will attend a poster session to discuss their work with attendees.

The submission system is open at and the deadline for submission is October 23, 2019…”
