  • Students are introduced via e-mail prior to the symposium and encouraged to read about the speaker's research
  • Preceding the symposium is a "preview" meeting in which two of the participating students chair the discussion
  • Following the symposium is a "digest" meeting to discuss the presentations and the students’ experiences
  • The written summary is to be vetted by the speaker prior to submission
  • Students in the Specialization are required to participate in a minimum of 6 symposia
