Paper Presentation--approximately 20-minute presentation; one of three presentations in a 75-minute session.

Roundtable-- 60-minute discussion; an opportunity to share a work in progress or an issue/concern. Roundtable presentations typically include a short presentation, followed by discussion and feedback. Roundtable presenters should bring targeted questions to pose to others at the table in order to learn from and with those attending. Roundtables are an ideal format for networking and focused discussion on a particular topic, including work-in-progress. The abstract should detail the focus of the presentation, the targeted questions that will be posed, and the way(s) in which it is relevant to the field of evaluation.

Symposium--75-minute session on a particular topic or theme involving prepared remarks, debate, and/or discussion by 3 or more presenters.

Demonstration--Demonstrations are formal 30 to 60-minute presentations that show how to use or apply an evaluation concept or tool. The abstract should describe how the presenter will walk attendees through a clear, step-by-step explanation of the concept or tool, how it compares to other evaluation concepts or tools, its strengths and weaknesses, and how it can best be applied.

Poster--A 60-minute general poster session.
