The second type of conference contribution includes a range of session types and is not accompanied by a paper. These sessions provide opportunities for practitioners to report on their work, for researchers to present compelling late-breaking findings, and for all participants to engage in discussions about the building modeling field. Presentation/session proposals can be 15-90 minutes in length and can cover a broad range of relevant topics. Creativity in presentation format and audience engagement is strongly encouraged.
