The purpose of the Symposia is to provide a forum for a discussion on a well-defined topic in environmental epidemiology. The main theme of the Conference is “Old and new risks: challenges for environmental epidemiology”. Proposals of Symposia that incorporate the main theme of the conference are encouraged.
Typically, a Symposium consists of a short introduction, a series of brief presentations by invited speakers about the Symposium specific topic, followed by a discussion among Symposium participants.
Submission deadline for Symposia: January 30, 2016
Notification of acceptance to Symposia Organizers: February 19, 2016
Each Symposium Organizer must provide a list of the invited speakers, their affiliations, and titles of the symposium and of each specific talk. As a way to engage young researchers to be more active in the ISEE conference (in addition to providing an excellent learning experience) we strongly recommend Symposium Chairs to invite a new researcher (under 5 years of experience from terminal degree) to act as co-Chair.
