Pre-Meeting Institute (PMI)
Institutes are full or half day sessions that provide opportunities for intensive training on topics integral to the conference program, presented by leaders in the field. Submissions must specify the level of presentation (introductory, intermediate, or advanced) and summarize the evidence for the material to be presented. Priority will be given to courses that present material for which there is clear empirical support.
Session that includes a group of 3-4 sequential presentations, each related to the overall theme of the symposium. Submission includes a brief outline of the overall submission topic, along with separate submission of the component parts of the symposium. In symposia, where there are fewer than four presenters, the program chairs may add a single paper submission addressing a similar theme.
Session that includes 3-4 participants discussing a common theme, issue or question. Panels may include short statements during which panelists outline diverse or similar approaches to the same question. Panels are typically more interactive than symposia, involving active discussion among the panelists.
Instructional session that aims to help participants increase their understanding and skill in a particular area of interest. Such sessions may include active involvement of the audience.
Case Study Presentation
Sessions that use material from a single or a set of cases to illustrate clinical, theoretical, or policy issues. These sessions may involve the audience in discussion of the case material presented.
Individual presentations of no more than 15 minutes on a topic related to traumatic stress, typically including the presentation of research data.
Individual presentation in a poster format on a topic related to traumatic stress, typically including the presentation of research data.
Session involving presentation of a segment of film, video, music, drama, literature, artwork, or other forms of media relevant to traumatic stress, along with discussion.
Participation Limits (Two Submissions Per Person):

This limit does not include keynote, plenary addresses, Pre-Meeting Institutes or poster presentations. Also, it does not include abstracts indicating a co-authorship role only and oral presentations in which the individual’s only roles is as a non-presenting chair or discussant.
