    Session formats

    Symposia (SYMP) present thematically related research addressing significant problems or controversies in prosthetics, orthotics, mobility and assistive devices. Symposia present differing perspectives on a particular topic. They bring together two or more respected researchers to present current developments and planned research directions. Symposia should be strongly evidence-based.

    Instructional Courses (IC) present information on specific topics at a level suited to the practitioner. These might be topics that receive limited coverage in undergraduate curricula or may be suited to experienced clinicians who have already specialised or who are entering a specialised area of practice or research.

    Free Paper Sessions (FP): A free paper is a professional communication describing a technique, case study, case series, clinical trial, systematic review, experiment or qualitative research delivered as a podium presentation during the congress. Abstracts of free papers are reviewed by a panel of experts to verify relevance, quality and innovation.

    Posters: A poster may describe a technique, case study, case series, clinical trial, systematic review, experiment or qualitative research. By comparison with free papers, a poster may present preliminary results or works in progress. Abstracts of poster presentations are reviewed by a panel of experts to verify relevance for delegates.

    Exhibitor Workshops: Exhibitor workshops provide an opportunity for industry representatives to instruct delegates about design features, prescription criteria and application of new products and devices. Workshops are used primarily as an educational opportunity. Where possible, presenters provide evidence for claims about the merits of particular products or devices.
