SUBMISSION TYPES

 

In a Symposium, professionals come into dialogue, pooling together their knowledge and views about a theme or specific issue. They provide an opportunity to examine this topic in depth from multiple perspectives.

Symposia consist of 3 to 4 short presentations, and a collective discussion to enhance presentations, and is thus an integral part of this session format. Therefore, each Symposium has a chair/organizer and/or a discussant.

We encourage conveners to bring together contributors from different countries or institutions. The emphasis is not on paper reading, but on dialogue, drawing connections, raising questions, highlighting issues, and utilizing audience participation.

The conveners of symposia should submit an abstract for the proposed symposium as well as for each individual presentation. They must name the discussant on the proposal form, as well as the names and affiliations of all individual authors of presentations. Please note that every participant must register individually if the symposium is accepted.

Duration: The duration of each symposium is scheduled for 90 minutes: 3 x 20 minute presentation and 30 minute discussion or 4 x 15 minute presentation and 30 minute discussion..

*Prepare your symposium proposal using the SYMPOSIUM PROPOSAL TEMPLATE

Workshops offered by one or more experts in a particular area constitute one of the core events of the conference, and are informative interactive sessions in which the participants are engaged in demonstrations, hands-on activities and/or discussion, based on research or practices.

They provide the context for an experiential, interactional and a “learning through doing and sharing” event. We particularly welcome creative workshops that operate on new formats, encouraging active and varied participation.

Workshops are usually addressed to a limited number of participants, to best serve their interactional feature. Please indicate the maximum number of participants.

Please note that every participant must register in order for the workshop to be included in the program.

Duration:  Workshops may have a duration of 90 or 45 minutes (i.e. a session may include one 90-minute or two 45-minute workshops).
The Scientific Committee may suggest a different duration or format for a submitted workshop during the review process.


*Prepare your workshop proposal using the WORKSHOP PROPOSAL TEMPLATE

Oral presentations are related to recent development in the main theme of the conference, referring to research study or professional practice, and/or development of tools and methodology.

In order to make discussion more relevant as well as encourage further collaboration, the scientific committee will group oral communications by theme.

Duration: The time allocated for each presentation is 15 minutes followed by 5 minutes questions/discussion. Four oral presentations are grouped together around a theme in one session [total session duration 90minutes].

Please note that every participant must register in order for paper to be included in the program.

The poster session is a forum to foster interactions among researchers and practitioners. Poster presentations will give attendees at the conference an opportunity to learn informally about new and innovative work in progress and ongoing research.
- posters presenting research results and case studies will be available to be viewed at all times during the conference.
- posters will be grouped by theme, and a special session will be organized for researchers to present if they wish (optional) their work in a creative and brief format.

Preparing the poster
- Posters should be approximately 92cm (36 in) wide x 122 cm (48 in) high. (TBC)
- The authors are responsible for posting and removing their posters from the specified area. Posting material will be available from the Conference Technical Secretariat.
- We recommend that presenters have a 2-page handout in English to provide to interested delegates.

In reviewing the posters originality, significance, quality, and clarity will be considered.

At least one of the accepted poster authors is required to attend the conference and present their work during the poster session. 

*Prepare your poster presentation proposal using the POSTER PROPOSAL TEMPLATE

Presenters propose the format (e.g. film, play, game, exhibition, dance, storytelling or other) in which they wish to present, and specify the time, space and equipment requirements.


• Open format submissions aim to enhance the conference’s scientific programme with different, unique and "out of the box" presentation formats.
• Duration depends on the format of the submission, with a maximum duration of 90 minutes.

*Prepare your open format proposal using the OPEN FORMAT PROPOSAL TEMPLATE
