Scientific Program Sessions

Rejuvenate Your Research

Refresh your thinking with more scientific content to choose from and more time scheduled each day to attend the sessions. Attend more than 25 Symposia and Technical Sessions, and view over 230 posters to see the latest trends and research findings. In addition to the knowledge available through traditional Symposia and Technical Sessions, the new format, introduced in 2010, invites you to join the discussion during Science Cafes and PosterTalks. With an extra morning time slot for scientific sessions each day, you'll receive more educational content and more time for scientific dialogue with your colleagues.

SymposiaandScience Cafe

Symposia and Science Cafés focus on multidisciplinary, cross-scientific initiative topics. They have been crafted around themes identified by the AACC International community and expanded by the program team and session organizers.

  • Symposia are aimed at optimal knowledge transfer through regular 20-minute talks with time for topical questions.
  • New! Science Cafés consist of sessions set up to combine shorter or more elaborate position talks with debate and discussion.

PosterTalks and Technical Sessions

Technical Sessions and PosterTalks focus on more in-depth coverage of central themes within single scientific initiatives. They are put together, after peer-review and selection, from abstracts submitted through the online abstract submission system.

  • Technical Sessions each feature 20-minute talks covering new scientific insights and technological advancements in the field.
  • New! PosterTalks consist of short talks, highlighting the main findings and take-home messages found on selected posters, followed by in-room poster viewing and discussion.

The Symposia and Technical Sessions are "swappable" sessions, allowing people to easily commute from one session to another. The Science Cafés and PosterTalks are "here to stay" sessions, where participation during a whole session is a guarantee for insightful and rewarding debate.
