  • Download and read the Moderator and Invited Speaker Guidelines (PDFs below) for Scientific Sessions. Please read in its entirety, as this will provide guidance on how to prepare for your roles.

All presenters will receive an email by mid-October which contains instructions on how to upload your presentation(s).

Accepting an invitation to speak or moderate does not automatically register you for Scientific Sessions. As an invited speaker, moderator or poster professor, you must register and obtain housing online after completing a series of steps in the online notification system, accessible through the link emailed to you.

Invited speakers, moderators and poster professors will receive complimentary registration. You will receive an email in June with information and a link to register for Scientific Sessions.
