We appreciate the life long dedicated work of pioneers, scholars, researchers, professionals who have made it their task to cast light to the mysteries of life and our understanding. We know that most of them are volunteers although they also have paid positions. We welcome their contributions. No congress can be successful without their work being presented. Thus, WE DO NOT ASK ANY SPEAKERS' REGISTRATION FEE. With gratitude we ask you, the speaker, to consider sharing with us all. Thank you all for submitting your abstracts. Please, proceed and submit any missing data using the same submission form.  See below for the session formats.

Prenatal Sciences Partnership 1st Global congress’ sessions and thematic sessions formats include:

Plenaries with 1 keynote speaker on the selected theme giving a presentation of 45-60 min.

Each plenary is followed by a panel discussion.

Panel Discussions: Each speaker gives a brief (15-20 minutes) prepared presentation, usually presenting a different view or experience on the topic, followed by debate between the speakers and questions from the audience facilitated by the chair. Each panel discussion lasts 120 minutes maximum and hosts maximum 4-5 speakers.

Paper sessions: Speakers orally present the findings of a prepared paper or project. Each paper session allows 4-5 presentations of 15-20 minutes each, including time for specific questions/ discussion. Each paper session focuses on the theme of the day and presents data from each continent so that the local and the global can manifest.

Debates:  between two or more experts in their fields presenting different aspects of the debate topic with one side presenting the positive case and the other the negative case.

Theme forums/ Symposia:  they include “cut-above” presentations and discussions which are intended to be integrative in nature, i.e., deal with cross-cutting issues relevant to the many specialties of impact assessment, bring together on a particular topic the various aspects of impact assessment and examine how those aspects apply to different sectors and issues, engage with the conference theme, be relevant to our international audience, and be innovative in format. One each day, with 3-4 speakers and 90 minutes. The aim is to allow a deeper understanding of the theme of the congress day.

Special Prenatal Sciences Hubs: Each of the 6 speakers is assigned a hub set up in the meeting room. Each speaker has 5-10 minutes’ presentation time to introduce the specific science and show how it is connected with the theme of the congress, then each speaker has another 15 min session to present the most interesting findings/ knowledge that comes from the specific discipline and present how this knowledge adds value to the issues of this congress. An interdisciplinary/ transdisciplinary discussion follows. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions to the speakers.

Community wisdom Hubs: A presentation methodology in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (six minutes and 40 seconds in total). This format allows for concise and fast presentations that come from the community advocates with more than typical discussion time following the presentation. Each session allows different cultures/ ethnicities to present.

Questions and Answers Sessions for Health Professionals, Researchers, Parents, Educators & Interested Stakeholders. An expert panel receives the question and offers a reliable response. Each Q&A session lasts 100 min.

Film screening sessions followed by discussion among the film people, prenatal sciences’ experts and the community.

Book presentation sessions presenting new book releases. Each session presents 1 academic book, 1 book for professionals, 1 for parents and the community, 1 for children.

Poster sessions: Videos of 5-10 min long and 5-7 slides

Exhibitions as well as children’s hubs, Pregnant Couples Hubs and Elderly people stories of wisdom
