Symposium discussant
A discussant is the final speaker in a SYMPOSIUM or Clinical perspective who highlights and integrates the contributions of various speakers in that session. The discussant uses their experience and expertise to provide a general commentary on individual presentations within the session and explore how the results presented  (in relation to each other) help advance the topic. Discussants should plan to discuss the session for maximum of 5- 10 minutes, depending upon the time available, and then moderate questions from the audience. Discussants should directly request the presentations (or at least the outlines) from the presenters before the ESCAP congress and prepare by reading related work prior to the conference.

PRESENTATION FORMATS

Individual Oral Presentation

  • Selected abstract submissions will be presented during sessions generally lasting 60 or 75 minutes.
  • Oral presenters will be allocated 15 minutes for their presentation. At the end of every session, there will be a 15 minute Q&A.

Poster

  • Authors present the results of data-rich research or clinical reports with the opportunity for feedback from viewers.
  • Posters have to be set up on the designated poster boards (the respective set-up times will follow).
  • They will be presented during a poster session, the best of each day will be awarded.

Symposium

  • Data-driven programs that present perspectives on different aspects of the topic or differing views of the same topic. Including an invited discussant.
  • Symposia are similar to Clinical Perspectives. While Clinical Perspectives may be more impressionistic and convey content based on the “art” and wisdom of clinical practice, Symposia comprise individual presentations of original research. Symposia are organized around a common theme and provide an opportunity for discussion by experts who approach an issue from slightly different, but complementary perspectives, or discussion of a controversial topic by experts with differing views.
  • Experts in their specific field condense all papers to a symposium and submit them jointly within the respective account.
  • The session lasts 60 or 75 minutes and contains 3 or 4 speakers. A single author may only submit one abstract within the same symposium.

Clinical perspectives

  • Present a particular topic related to treatment, research method, service delivery, or clinical care, which includes evidence-based materials as well as the "art" and clinical wisdom of the practice of child and adolescent psychiatry.
  • Clinical Perspectives are similar to Symposia. While Symposia emphasize the presentation of original research reports, Clinical Perspectives may include historical information, case presentations, systematic observations, methodology, descriptions of systems of care, etc.
  • Clinical Perspectives are organized around a common theme and provide an opportunity for discussion by experts who approach an issue from slightly different, but complementary perspectives, or discussion of a controversial topic by experts with differing views.
  • The session lasts 60 or 75 minutes and contains 3 or 4 speakers. A single author may only submit one abstract within the same symposium.

Trainee Case Presentations

  • 60-minute session
  • Case presentations provide an opportunity for students, residents, and fellows to present interesting or challenging clinical cases followed by a discussion with a panel of national experts in child and adolescent psychiatry.
  • These experts may ask the trainees clarifying questions in a supportive manner or may share clinical insights, experiences, or pearls.
  • Individual cases are no more than 10 minutes in duration and led by no more than 2 students/trainees.
  • Presenters should spend 5 minutes summarizing the facts of the case (including initial presentation and treatment course), and 5 minutes focusing on their take-home points, additional unanswered questions, and/or considerations for the future.

Workshop

  • 3 hours in duration
  • Workshops provide instruction in a particular clinical, research, or other technique for debate or discussion among a small audience. The objective for workshops should be “tell the audience what you are going to teach them”, the methods should be “how you are going to teach it, including who will teach what, whether there will be handouts, etc.”, and results should be how they will be able to use the knowledge.
  • Designed to encourage discussion in small groups maximum attendees of 30.
