2021 Presentation Types
Proposals for the following session types are being accepted:

Description: A poster presentation is an opportunity to discuss your topic with peers in an informal setting. Posters typically focus on one main theme, and present useful information, research results and stimulate discussion. A poster presentation allows viewers to study and restudy information and discuss it with the presenter one on one. Presenter must present in-person, follow poster size guidelines.

Description: A theory-based presentation of original content focused on exploring and analyzing new and current issues, trends, perspectives and/or models in the field of oncology social work and demonstrates a relationship or gap of this new information to existing research and theory.
Time: 60 minutes - 45 minutes for presenting the information and 15 minutes for dialogue with attendees.

Paper Symposium
Description: Multiple presentations on a single topic presented by authors with moderated discussion by a group of 3-5 participants who submitted abstracts on the topic addressed. Authors will share their knowledge through discussion on the validity, value, and applicability of the topic as well as their own unique work in the topic area.
Time: 60 OR 90 minutes - 5 minutes for introducing the topic, 40 OR 70 minutes for discussion/presentation by the presenters, and 15 minutes for summary and questions from the audience.

Learning Institute
Description: A presentation designed to actively involve attendees in structured activities, small or large group processes, simulation, and/or other training components. Presentation must have in evidence a meaningful rationale and/or theoretical base underlying the activities. For advanced skills training requiring more presentation time, two 90 min sessions may be requested, however given logistics, planning and space, this will be a very limited option.
Time: 90 minutes.
