What is the difference between a roundtable and a symposium? The primary difference between a roundtable event and a symposium is the level of structure. Roundtables are less formal and provide a venue where every participant is expected to contribute to the discussion.
Symposia involve one or more formal presentations (in the form of research papers, essay, or white papers) followed by active participation on the part of the audience. Symposia are often organized to explicitly include opposing perspectives.
