Paper — Detailed Instructions

Papers are the oral presentation of one or more very closely related studies which reflect empirical research or research synthesis. While the paper presentation format offers limited opportunity for interaction with the audience, it may be desirable when ideas require more structured or sequential explanation than that offered by a poster.
