Call for workshops

Workshops are 90 minutes and should provide in-depth coverage on a vaccinology or immunization issue related to a specific conference stream.

Workshops are intended to be dynamic and to enhance the skills of conference participants through a practical learning experience without excessive use of PowerPoint or lecture style format.  Good facilitation is essential to the success of a Workshop. Speaker(s) should have experience facilitating and ensure the workshop is participatory and skill-building in nature.

Presentation time should be limited to 30 minutes without excessive use of PowerPoint or lecture style format to allow for interactive learning.  Attendees should have the opportunity to learn and apply the knowledge and skills that are the focus of the Workshop. Submissions should clearly describe what skill attendees will learn during the session and emphasize how they will participate throughout the session.
