Satellite Sessions

Satellite sessions are organised and supported by individuals, non-profit groups, organisations, or commercial entities. The Union offers these groups the opportunity to showcase their work, research and programmes, or draw more attention to a specific subject or area by organising a satellite. All satellite sessions are reviewed for compliance with The Union’s mission and vision.

  • Satellite sessions will be held from Wednesday 21 October to Saturday 24 October, outside of the core programme hours.
  • Standard sessions will run for 60 minutes and Prime Time sessions will be allotted 90 minutes.
  • Sessions can either be pre-recorded or broadcast live through our virtual conference platform, with the option for a Q&A session at the end.
  • Approved sessions will be listed in the official conference programme.
  • There will be two rounds of review and notification.
  • Satellite sessions submitted in the first round will have priority in the selection of time slots. Space permitting, there will be a second round of submissions.
  • Approved Prime Time Satellite Sessions will receive one dedicated email promotion and two push notifications on desktop and mobile.

The session organiser is responsible for the session, including communicating with speakers and promptly informing the Secretariat of changes. The satellite session organiser should ensure costs of registration for the speakers and chairpersons will be covered. Full payment must be made within six weeks of approval. If no payment is received, the slot will be allocated to another satellite.

Satellite session submissions are now closed.

For reference, you can still read the satellite session guidelines.
