Video Sessions

Video Sessions provide a more visual approach to learning new and innovative techniques in the urologic field. Eight minute videos are presented in 2-hour moderated sessions grouped by specific topic areas. These sessions will take place Sunday, May 20 – Wednesday, May 23 from 8 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Presenting authors must be present in their assigned session to discuss their video and take questions from the audience.

Video presenters do not need to bring anything with them for the session. Once accepted, the latest version of the submitted video will be used and downloaded to the computer in the meeting room for presentation.

Videos will be available for viewing on-site in the Surgical Video Library. They will also be reproduced and sold as part of an educational product at the Annual Meeting and thereafter.

Each author is required to sign the Video Release form transferring and assigning all copyright ownership the AUA.
