Satellite sessions

The 47th Union World Conference on Lung Health offers organisations the opportunity to organise satellite sessions, which will be announced in the official programme of the conference. 

All satellite sessions will take place on Thursday through Saturday, 27 to 29 October, from 07:30 to 08:45 or 17:30 to 19:00, outside of the official hours of the core programme. 

Rooms with a capacity of up to 850 seats may be booked for satellite sessions.

To be considered, the session description, objectives, target audience, topic, title and speakers’ names must be submitted for review via our online platform. There will be two rounds of review and notification. Proposals submitted in the first round will have priority in the selection of time slots. Satellite sessions submitted before 1 July 2016 will receive notification by 20 July. 

If there are still spaces available, there will be a second round of review for sessions submitted between 2 July and 1 September 2016. Notifications for the second round will be sent 9 September.

The sponsor of a satellite session may cover travel, accommodation and registration costs for the speakers and chairpersons of the session at their discretion.
