Panel Session Submission

Panel sessions will be considered as part of the contributed program. Panel sessions should consist of 4-5 presentations on a related theme or topic.

Panel organizers may propose 3-4 presentations and a discussant, or all presentations and no discussant. Because each presentation in a panel must be reviewed on its own merits, each participant in a proposed panel session must also submit an abstract through the contributed paper online process. This is in addition to the panel abstract submitted by the organizer. Not all presentations in a panel will necessarily by accepted.

If you would like to propose a contributed panel session, please provide the following information via email to

  1. Panel session organizer name and contact information (organization, address, email, phone).
  2. Panel description (300-word limit). This should include a description of the topic to be addressed and its relevance to the study of hard to reach populations.
  3. Panelist information – Name and contact information for all panelist/discussant (organization, address, email, phone).
  4. Panelist presentation titles - The title of each panelist presentation.
    (If a panelist will serve as a discussant, simply indicate so).
