Types of Contributions


Paper sessions include oral presentations of four papers, followed by a discussion with the audience. Each session is scheduled for 90 minutes. Four presenters are each given 15 minutes presentation time followed by five minutes for questions At the end of paper sessions there is a 10-minute open discussion. To be accepted, empirical papers must contain research questions grounded in the state of the art, data, methods and results. Theoretical papers are welcome. Research at its earlier stages is very suitable for poster sessions.


Interactive, open, unstructured poster sessions (i.e., no introductions) offer researchers the chance to present their work visually. They also provide manifold opportunities to engage in interaction and discussion. Posters are usually ideal for work in its early stages and for novel and promising ideas. The poster sessions will be assigned to specific time slots with no other parallel sessions.


Symposia provide an opportunity to present research on one topic, often from multiple perspectives, compiling a coherent set of papers for discussion. Symposia sessions are directed by a chair, involving 4 presenters and one discussant, from at least three different countries. We recommend that each individual submission is checked in terms of quality, relevance and coherence to the topic of the symposium. Each symposium is scheduled for 90 minutes, allowing approximately 12-15 minutes presentation time per speaker, 15 minutes for the discussant, and 15 minutes for open discussion.
