In order to emphasize conversation and interactive dialogue, we will introduce seminars to the C19 conference this year. Seminars will provide participants the opportunity to have a collaborative conversation around a particular topic. Seminars will be capped at 15 participants and will be run by a leader with expertise in the topic. Each participant will submit a five-page position paper before the conference to be read in advance by the other participants so that seminar time can be reserved for discussion. Seminar participants will be listed in the program. Seminar topics are listed below.Â For information on submitting a seminar proposal, clickÂ here.
