Presentation types:

The International Scientific Committee invites both empirical and theoretical proposals for:

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

1. Single Oral Presentation

This presentation format allows for 15 minutes of individual presentation time followed by a 5 minutes discussion lead by the session chair.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

2. Posters

Dedicated poster sessions will be scheduled in the conference program. Each poster presentation will include a graphic presentation on visual display of size 90×120 cm2 (3×4 feet2) in “portrait” format. The poster sessions offer more opportunities for interaction and discussion. Poster sessions are scheduled for 60 minutes, during which the poster-centered discussions take place.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

3. Workshops

Workshops enable presenters to display, explain and familiarize users with an innovative approach, a teaching or research tool, or some other aspect of research or teaching practices. The Workshop may include a brief presentation of completed research, but the emphasis is on demonstrating an innovation or a tool. Adequate time for reflective discussion is important. These sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

4. Symposia

A Symposium is a collection of related papers which examine a topic more broadly and deeply from various points of view. A chairperson (the lead person for organizing the symposium) and a mininum of 2 more discussants are needed for putting together a symposium proposal. Each symposium will contain four individually conducted but closely related studies. Please note that if you are planning to submit a symposium proposal then the title and the abstract should represent the symposium as a whole and not each individual paper contribution in it. The first author will be designated as the symposium organizer/chairperson. Altogether, you can add up to 12 authors for your symposium. Each symposium session will be given up to a 120-minute block of time in the program: 20 minutes for each presentation, 10 minutes for the discussant, and a total of 20 minutes allocated for discussions. The symposium proposal will be submitted by the chairperson that will present the title and the four single abstract (each in the limits 400 – 600 words).
