Symposia provide an opportunity to present research on one topic, often from multiple perspectives, compiling a coherent set of papers for discussion. Participants of symposia sessions are four presenters, one discussant, and a chairperson. The presenters need to come from at least three different countries. The task of the chairperson is to direct the session and manage the time. While the presenters will orally present their research, the discussant’s task is to summarise and interactively discuss the presented research. A key goal of symposia is to generate interactive discussions among presenters and the audience, so please consider how this can be achieved.
A symposium is scheduled for 90 minutes, allowing four presentations with 15 minutes of time per speaker, ten minutes for the discussant, and 20 minutes for open discussion. Symposia will take place in the two auditoriums.
In each room, in which symposia will take place, a computer, digital projector, and internet access will be provided. Own computers can be connected to the projectors via a provided HDMI cable.
