Discussion Groups gather Congress participants who are interested in discussing challenging, controversial, or emerging issues and dilemmas of interest with an international or regional audience in a genuinely interactive way.
The IPC consider Discussion Groups as integral to fostering international collaboration and sharing on topics that are of importance and relevance to Congress participants from different countries.
This is a participant-led activity
Topics for Discussion Groups are proposed by Congress participants. Successful proposers assume responsibility for organising the two 90-minute sessions on their chosen topic which will be included in the program schedule for ICME-15. A sub-committee of the IPC will take an active role in helping those involved become important components of the Scientific Program that engage and inform colleagues in a genuinely interactive way.
Congress participants wishing to organise a Discussion Group at ICME-15 are invited to submit an initial proposal using the link below.
Submissions are now open, and will be accepted up to 1 November 2023.
Proposals should include:
- The leader(s) of the Discussion Group
- A description of the theme, including anticipated aims and a rationale for the topic
