Presentation Guidelines

Papers will normally be given in small focus groups. A few papers may be presented in a general session dependent upon the breadth and nature of the topic under consideration

The Symposium will have an enrollment of approximately fifty (50) persons who have submitted approved research abstracts, and others who do not wish to prepare papers, but attend to listen to presentations, and/or serve on panels.

Papers presented at the Symposium must adhere to previously approved abstracts. Researchers who present papers are allocated approximately twenty (20) minutes or less to explain the salient points of their study. Presenters may, in order to be concise, utilize PowerPoint.

The Symposium’s interest in the dissemination research may be substantially enhanced by the attendance of persons who are not directly engaged in research, but may hold professional or governmental positions that provide opportunities for the implementation of research findings. Too, other researchers, who are not presenting papers at this session, may benefit by informing their own future research endeavours and designs.
