Focused symposia

Submission is now closed

Focused symposia are one of congress’s key sessions. The sessions include high profile speakers, draw large audiences, and aim to create insightful and engaging learning experiences that ultimately inform, inspire, involve and empower delegates.  

Lasting 1.5 hours, each symposium is organised by a recognised expert in the field who leads a coherent session with 3-4 speakers working together and engaging with the audience to draw out the relevance, challenges, applicability and take-home messages.

Cutting edge relevant topics will be explored from an international and diverse perspective. Presentations from a range of countries and WCPT regions will ensure the implications of the latest research and thinking will be examined, as well as laying the foundations for future interactions and initiatives.

The deadline to submit a focused symposium proposal has now passed. All those who submitted proposals will be notified of the outcome by 26 March 2020.

The focused symposia to be presented at the WCPT Congress 2021 will be published in April 2020.
