Symposium Proposal Submission

DEADLINE IS APRIL 1, 2018

We are particularly interested in proposals that are likely to stimulate formal and informal discussion. Although the inclusion of a discussant is not a requirement, there should be integration of topics across the individual speakers. At least one speaker must be an ISDP member and speakers must represent different laboratories and locations. The Program Committee is especially interested in a “Young Investigators Symposium”, the ISDP encourages submissions from investigators within five years of earning a PhD to submit a Young Investigators Symposium.

Proposals will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  1. Interest to ISDP members
  2. Innovation and novelty, including cross-disciplinary topics
  3. Reputation, country and diversity of speakers
  4. Likelihood that the symposium will generate discussion and/or stimulate fruitful interactions

One symposium will be awarded a Sackler Award to defray costs of attendance of symposium speakers. One symposium will be accepted as the Young Investigators Symposium. All symposium speakers who are not members of ISDP will be granted free membership and member discounted registration fees.
