Panel Presentations. These discussion sessions are presented by panelists involving interactive, in-depth, state-of- the-art presentations on controversial topics with a variety of viewpoints.

Rapid Poster Presentations. This presentation format showcases the highly ranked poster submissions in each subspecialty, giving the selected poster presenters the opportunity to provide a focused oral summary with a limited set of slides highlighting and describing the major influence of their research. The presentations take place during the lunch hour in the Poster Pavilion.

Each presentation concludes with two minutes of audience questions and answers.

Scientific Posters. Visual displays detailing the latest advancements in otolaryngology research that allow the viewers the opportunity to appraise and assimilate scientific evidence for improved patient care practices. Poster authors are at their boards during specific times on Monday and Tuesday to discuss their findings.

Simulation Presentations. These are education presentations with simulation tools at the core. Unlike other educational adjuncts such as “audience response,” the simulation tools will be integral to the conception and structure of the presentation.
