Similar to a workshop, an interactive learning session (ILS) is a facilitated session with clear learning objectives and opportunities for learner engagement with the material being presented.
In order to be considered, each proposed ILS must meet the specified quality standards. If you cannot click on the link, please visit https://app.smartsheet.com/b/form/142c9e4cfb7e4b23b6dc262c224f23a7

The decision about acceptance or rejection of ILS proposals will be made by the TEPHINET Advisory Scientific Committee in consultation with the Planning Committee, taking into account several factors including overall quality, relevance, suitability for the conference, and venue capacity.
The cost of hosting an ILS is $8,000 for a full-day session and $4,000 for a half-day session. The feasibility of hosting a particular ILS is contingent upon securing funding. TEPHINET strongly encourages ILS organizers to seek external funding and sponsorships.
