Where several societies, ideally based from different geographic regions, are invited to present their regional position on a number of topics. The session is 2 hours. There will be 4 societies per session. Each society will have equal representation. The ideas expressed should reflect the formal opinion of the society and not the personal views of the speaker as much as possible.
3-minute video presentations given by delegates. Presenters will submit an abstract discussing a brief introduction and a description of the procedure to be presented for review by the abstract submission date. Videos can then be produced by the speaker in the lead up to the conference. The video does not need to be produced as part of the abstract submission process. Videos will not be reviewed by the scientific program committee, but the presenters should be encouraged to provide videos with high production value.

These will be displayed throughout the conference (location(s) still to be determined) along with a brief description of the image.
Submissions should include a copy of the image, as well as a 300-word description of the image and how it was obtained.
A brief 30 minute session to be conducted at the beginning of the first plenary session on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Presented as though speakers are having a conversation in a café, where in reality, conversations and decisions are often made.
