Pre-Conference Workshops
Pre-Conference workshop is 4-hour or 9-hour (including lunch) interactive meeting or educational session, that occur one day before the annual meeting. Pre-conference workshops will be offered at additional cost to the registered participants of ISEE 2024 Meeting.

Keynote Presentation – Plenary Sessions
Sessions for the presentations of keynote speakers & the winner of the ISEE Goldsmith Award (45 minutes each).

Symposia are 90-minute discussion sessions that bring together experts to delve into specific topics. These sessions involve interactive discussions with the audience. A symposium will consist of 4 or 5 presenters; a maximum of 2 of them could be remote presenters. The rest of the presenters and the chair(s) are required to attend the conference in-person.

Traditional Oral Sessions
These 90-minute sessions feature presentations based on accepted abstracts. Each abstract presenter is allocated 12 minutes for their presentation and 3 minutes for discussion.

Virtual-Only Oral Sessions
These 90-minute online sessions, based on accepted abstracts, feature prerecorded presentations. Each presenter has a 12-minute presentation slot and a 3-minute discussion period. Presenters can participate in Q&A sequences during the session.

Poster Discussions (Moderated Posters)
These discussion sessions focus on selected posters grouped by specific topics/subtopics. A brief (maximum 2 minutes) overview of each poster is provided before the discussion segment. All discussion posters will be printed in hard copies and displayed on traditional poster boards. In person attendance is compulsory.

Free Posters 
Free posters will be displayed on poster boards, with each poster scheduled for one day of viewing. While there’s no scheduled presentation and discussion time, presenters are encouraged to be available by their posters during coffee breaks for questions and discussions.

Pecha Kucha Sessions
A recent tradition at ISEE Annual Conferences, Pecha Kucha presentations are rapid-fire, with each presenter given 5 minutes, including Q&A (12 slides – 20 seconds per slide, plus 1 minute Q&A time)

E-posters are displayed in the gallery at all times, ordered by poster numbers assigned based on themes. Presenting your e-poster to the audience during the virtual meeting is not possible. However, each e-poster features a chat box function, allowing conference participants to ask questions about your e-poster. Regardless of in-person or virtual status, all poster abstracts accepted for ISEE 2024 will also be uploaded as e-posters, in addition to their original presentation medium.


Flash Oral Sessions
Short oral presentations with 5 minutes of presentation time + 2 minutes of Q&A.
