Applicants are also advised to link their proposals to the topics which are the focus of the steering groups, strategic initia​​tives, and/or advice. 

Applicants are particularly encouraged to propose new formats ​for their sessions. Options for finding new ways of sharing your science and innovation could include panel discussions, brief introductory slots or keynotes (securing funds is up to conveners), or stakeholder participation.

A theme session e​​​​​​​​​xample​ is available to help structure your proposal. Unsuccessful proposals from 2016 will not be considered unless they are resubmitted using the online proposal form.
