* Presentation modes will be 40-minute papers, special interest workshops, research symposia, and posters.

* Research symposia will be 2 hours and will consist of 3 30-minute papers on a given topic followed by a 30-minute general discussion involving the audience. Organizers of a symposium should submit a 150-word abstract summarizing the topics and goals of the symposium along with a 250-word abstract for each research paper.

* Forty-minute papers will be 30 minutes of presentation and 10 minutes of discussion. Poster sessions will be 2 hours long.
