2.1. Single Oral Presentation
This presentation format allows for 20 minutes of individual presentation time followed by a 10 minute discussion moderated by the session chair. Papers will be grouped by strand.
2.2. Symposium Oral Presentation
Each Symposium will be organized by a coordinator and will contain 3 to 5 presentations concerning a common topic of interest to the group. However, the presenters in each group must be from at least 2 (and preferably 3 or more) different countries. Each symposium session will be given a 90-minute block of time in the program. The coherence of the symposium will be evaluated, as well as the quality of each of the individual presentations. The proposer (there can be one or two coordinators of whom one is the proposer) is in charge of submitting the titles, an abstract and a synopsis of the symposium, and also providing the name of a discussant. Each single presentation within a symposium will be evaluated. If the coherence of the symposium is not evaluated positively, each accepted symposium oral presentation will be presented as a single oral presentation.

Dedicated poster sessions will be programmed during the congress.
