Each standard session will last for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Proposers are encouraged to make their session(s) as interactive as possible. Different formats are possible and proposers are encouraged to develop their own innovative and creative formats:

Examples of formats are:

  • Traditional panel discussion: maximum 3-4 speakers (maximum 15 minutes each) followed by extended discussion with the audience.
  • Interactive round table(s): a flexible format with a brief presentation and space for questions, answers and responses.

Please remember that this is not a conventional scientific conference and that the audience will be diverse and will not necessarily have expert technical knowledge in the domain covered by your proposal.

Please note that the Programme Committee reserves the right to modify session formats after your session has been accepted.

SFSA Science Talks

The SFSA2016 programme will also include slots for speaking opportunities for individual speakers.  Proposals for such the Science Talk sessions, which will be 30 minutes in duration including time for debate and questions, are also encouraged.   The talks will be scheduled concurrent with the parallel sessions, as well as during the SFSA2016 welcome reception and networking session scheduled at the end of the first day.  The SFSA2016 Programme Committee will use the same content and participation criteria to evaluate Science Talk proposals.
