A workshop includes hands-on training relevant to the different IDEAL phases. Requirements for workshop proposals:

Each panellist is expected to provide a different perspective on the issue. Specific requirements for issue panel proposals:
  • To assure lively discussion, panellists should be from different institutions and/or work environments. All panellists, their affiliations and the perspective they will provide should be listed in the proposal

Sandpit session

Sandpit sessions are designed to pitch an idea for a study or innovation, and to gather comments and suggestions from the audience. The session begins with a pitch of the presenter of his or her idea in no more than five minutes. After these five minutes, the focus shifts from the presenter to the audience. For the remainder of the session (15-20 minutes), comments, insights and questions on the idea are invited from those around the room. Sandpit sessions allow attendees to drive their own learning and share experiences with others, which also assists with networking.
Specific requirements for sandpit session proposals:

  • Disclose financial support in a separate box
