Plenary Sessions

The Plenary Sessions provide opportunities for all attendees to learn about topics of interest to the multi-disciplinary team of burn care professionals.


The Correlative Sessions showcase new, cutting-edge research on clinical management, basic science and other burn care issues through multiple presentations by investigators of accepted abstracts. These presentations are followed by a question and answer period allowing for an exchange of ideas and additional learning. Abstracts are grouped by topic with sessions running concurrently.  Room hopping during the concurrent sessions is encouraged.


The Symposia are interactive sessions, moderated by experts in the field. Participants should come prepared to participate with their own practice successes, failures and questions. Each symposium is limited to 50 people.  Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. The three most popular Symposia, will be repeated Friday morning.


Forums are concurrently running sessions that provide more in depth education on specific topics.  These include four-hour courses (conducted over two-days), two-hour educational forums, workshops and other formats.  These may have target audiences or be multi-disciplinary in focus. Any attendees with interest in the topic are welcome to attend. Room hopping is encouraged.

Poster Rounds

Poster Rounds provide an opportunity to explore a topic in-depth with a small group of researchers led by experts in the field. Each researcher in the topic area will briefly present their work for the group.  Poster Rounds give attendees an informal opportunity to meet the presenters and ask questions.
