Presentation Formats

1. Symposia and Workshops

Symposia are organized in a 60-minute session format for presenting related research on a single topic or theme (e.g., pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment). Preference is given to symposia that are empirically-based, and either present new research data or the findings of systematic literature reviews. The format typically includes a chairperson and three (3) primary presenters. The chairperson, who may also be a presenter, arranges the symposium, provides a brief overview of the topic for the audience, and introduces speakers. Submissions should not exceed 250 words, should be single-spaced, and titles should be formatted in uppercase and lowercase letters.

Workshops are intended to provide an in-depth review of topics that are of immediate use in the clinical setting. To this end, presenters should provide participants with handouts and summaries outlining the workshop material. ADS requests that the content of workshops be empirically-derived and include evidence-based approaches to the care of patients. Workshops are 60 minute sessions, which typically involve brief presentations from individual panel members, followed by the opportunity for a lively and informative discussion. This format allows for substantial audience participation and should be highly interactive. Submissions should not exceed 250 words, should be single-spaced, and titles should be formatted in uppercase and lowercase letters.

2. Roundtable Discussions are intended to identify an important area in delirium research that has been mired in controversy and to bring together experts to help move the field forward. The purpose is to review and discuss scientific research related to the topic, to provide a forum for interaction between experts on the topic, and, ultimately, to develop clear consensus statements or recommendations for research about the topic. Submissions should not exceed 250 words, should be single-spaced, and titles should be formatted in uppercase and lowercase letters. ADS will select one (1) roundtable discussion this year.
