AESS 2011 Sessions Seeking Participants

The titles of all open sessions are listed below. To submit an abstract for one of these sessions, follow the normal abstract submission process located here<https://aess.clubexpress.com/content.aspx?page_id=22&club_id=939971&module_id=90325> on the conference website. Please be sure to specify the session title in your abstract!
Full descriptions of the sessions are available here<https://aess.clubexpress.com/content.aspx?page_id=22&club_id=939971&module_id=90340>. If you have questions on any of the sessions, please contact the session coordinator listed below.

There are both open panel sessions and open symposia. The definitions and differences are as follows:

Definition of a panel session: Panel sessions include shorter oral presentations than symposia - a maximum of 10 minutes - and are primarily designed to promote thought and discussion rather than to convey (for example) research results. The emphasis is on the discussion at least as much as it is on the individual oral presentations.

Definition of a symposium: A symposium is a collection of oral presentations focused on conveying theory, research results, or other scholarly content. The focus of this type of session is on the content of the presentations. Presentation length limit is 15 minutes.
