Symposium Policies

  • The organizer must be a current member (for 2019) in good standing.
  • Invited speakers must register for the meeting but need not be members.
  • No speaker can participate in more than one symposium.
  • Speaker substitutions are not allowed.
  • If a symposium talk has more than one author, it must be presented by the first author.
  • Submitting a symposium proposal or speaking in a symposium does not prevent you from submitting an abstract for a talk or poster presentation at VSS.
  • Organizers must ensure that all speakers are committed to participating in the symposium before submitting a proposal
