Invited Talks & Panel Discussion [Click here for details about Invited Talks]
There will be two invited talk sessions (Wednesday, 4:00-6:00 pm & Thursday, 10:15 am-12:15 pm). Invited speakers will present their research focused on the theme -- "Transfer of Learning." Each invited talk will be 30 minutes long. In each session a 30 minute panel discussion will follow the three talks.
Targeted Poster Session [Click here for session list and descriptions]
Targeted poster sessions combine the graphic display of materials with the opportunity for discussion of the research. Sessions are organized around a common theme or body of work. Presenters introduce their posters with brief opening statements and end the session with a panel discussion of the research. The remaining time allows attendees to visit posters. Although it is not a requirement, all targeted poster session presenters are urged to present their research from the perspective of transfer of learning.

Workshop [Click here for session list and descriptions]
Workshops afford participants an opportunity to experience firsthand the research tools and strategies employed by the presenter. Workshop presenters will create an interactive environment in which participants will become familiarized with real data or research results and work collaboratively to discuss their analysis and/or implications through hands-on/minds-on activities. Similar to the Targeted Poster Sessions, Workshops will strive to address issues that pertain to transfer of learning.

Roundtable Discussion [Click here for abstracts]
Roundtable discussions allow maximum interaction with the presenters by eliminating the formal didactic presentation. There will be opportunity for discussion on Wednesday evening, concurrent with the Contributed Poster Session. Individual presenters are assigned tables in a meeting room where interested persons may gather for discussion with the presenter about his or her paper or project. This format is particularly appropriate for papers addressing topics best pursued through extensive discussion. Authors are encouraged to bring copies of the full paper or summaries and to remain available for discussion throughout the session.
Contributed Poster Presentation [Click here for abstracts]
Every attendee is invited to contribute a poster describing his/her current research. There will be opportunity for viewing and discussing the posters on Wednesday evening at the Contributed Poster Session. The posters will remain up throughout the conference to encourage and facilitate discussion among the community.
