Paper proposals
The paper sessions will consist of the oral/visual/audiovisual presentation of four papers followed by discussions (15 + 5 min/ paper). The individual papers are grouped into sessions by the Scientific Committee based on the topics.

Symposium proposals
A symposium is a session (90 min) that provides an opportunity to examine the congress themes in a special way:

The deadline for symposium proposals is 30 November 2009. The proposer is responsible for collecting the presenters and for organizing the format and session schedule. The symposium can be either closed (presenters by invitation from the proposer only) or open for also others to submit their abstract.
