Interactive Sessions

Interactive Sessions are 75 minute blocks designed to give participants a deeper dive into the subject material. Short workshops, panel discussions, and similar active learning options are particularly well suited for this session type. While most interactive sessions focus on solutions (best practices in current operations), these sessions can also be a creative way to disseminate research results. Given the importance of the presenter(s) to the success of interactive sessions, these abstracts will be single-blind peer reviewed. Review criteria for interactive session abstracts are:

  • Relevance to Symposium audience
  • Currency or novelty of the solutions or results presented
  • Likelihood of audience participation in the session
  • Qualifications of the presenter(s) in the topic

Papers

Papers are peer reviewed (beyond the peer review of the abstract) and will be published in the proceedings of the symposium. A style guide will be provided to paper authors along with the acceptance of their abstract. Papers will be no longer than10 pages, including figures, graphs, and references. Paper abstracts and full paper submissions will receive double-blind peer review. Papers are present to publish, meaning that at least one author must register for the symposium in order for the paper to be in the final version of the proceedings. Review criteria for paper abstracts are:

  • Relevance to Symposium audience
  • Currency or novelty of the solutions or results presented
  • Appropriate level of scholarship
  • Relevant prior work and literature citations, methodology, and research or theoretical results

Posters

Posters are peer reviewed at the abstract stage and will double-blind peer reviewed. Authors whose abstracts are accepted will be invited to present a poster (no bigger than 4’x6’) in a group poster session during the symposium. Posters are present to publish, meaning that at least one author must register for the symposium in order for the poster to be in the final version of the proceedings. Review criteria for poster abstracts are:

  • Relevance to Symposium audience
  • Currency or novelty of the solutions or results presented
  • Appropriate level of scholarship
