Symposia are the scientific centerpiece of the annual meeting and will be assigned premium meeting space and time slots. These sessions are distinguished from other organized sessions in that
they are more explicitly integrated, provide an overall synthesis on their topic, but have broad enough appeal to generate large audiences at the meeting.
Below is the list of symposia presentations taking place at the 2021 Virtual PSA Annual Meeting. The schedule and presentation dates are still being put together.
