Request for Presenters

We invite presenters to facilitate symposiums or workshops (90 min each) centered around one of the identified themes below. We also welcome Vietnamese-speaking presenters. 


Symposiums are focused sessions (90 minutes) in which multiple speakers present information related to a
unifying topic. A symposium should include 2 to 4 brief presentations (15-20 min each) of research, practice, or
educational content, followed by an interactive facilitated discussion. Each symposium should have a chair, who is
the main point of contact for the session and is responsible for inviting speakers and ensuring that all presenters are
aware of the correct date, time, and location of the session.

Workshops are sessions (90 minutes) in which participants can learn and practice a particular skill. A workshop
should have an informational component and a practice component. Workshop presenters should clearly state why
they are qualified to conduct the workshop.
