Themed sessions will be held concurrently across three sessions throughout the day. Each presentation will be followed by an interactive question and answer session allowing the audience to ask questions, provide feedback and have a discussion. These presentations will be facilitated by Chairs from industry and research institutions.

Additionally, research students and post-doctoral researchers will be able to demonstrate their work through the poster display, and dedicated Poster Sessions to allow for discussion with attendees of the Symposium.
