Information for each submission format

Symposia

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 either three or 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. If you opt for three presenters, we expect the fourth 15-minute slot to be used for active discussion with the audience. One review criterion will evaluate to which extent the symposium aims to be interactive. This may be achieved by outlining contradictory perspectives or ambivalent results.

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.

Organisers of symposia have to name a chairperson (organisers may also be the chairperson) and nominate the discussant. They are also responsible for submitting the entire symposium including the individual presentations in the online system. A symposium proposal comprises a 500 word long extended summary for each presentation as well as a 500 word long summary that describes the goals of the symposium, how the single presentations fit together, and how the symposium aims to generate an interactive discussion. The extended summaries for each presentation should describe the presentation’s motivation, theoretical framework, method (if applicable), findings (if applicable), and a discussion of the findings (if applicable). A joint list of references can be put in additionally and does not count as part of the word limit. Figures, tables, and other additional material can be uploaded either as a single PDF or a ZIP file for the whole symposium.

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.

Papers

Paper sessions are oral presentations of four papers, followed by a short discussion with the audience. It is important that empirical papers have data and results, otherwise they will not be accepted. Research that is at an earlier stage is more suitable for roundtable or poster sessions. Of course, theoretical papers are welcome as well. A chairperson will moderate the session and manage the time. 

Paper sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes. Four presenters are given 15 minutes presentation time each followed by about five minutes for clarifying questions and a short discussion. The residual ten minutes can be used for a more general discussion.

Posters

Interactive poster sessions involve a small number of posters, visually presenting research studies at any stage as well as theoretical contributions. The poster presentations will take place in a setting reminiscent of a gallery and the audience will gather as a group. A short oral presentation of a few minutes is given by each presenter in front of their own poster, followed by a free in-depth discussion between everyone. The poster sessions offer researchers the chance to present their work in a visual format and offer more opportunities for interaction and discussion. The poster session will be moderated by a chairperson.

Poster sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes. Posters should be printed in either A0 or A1 format. As we cannot print posters at the conference venue, presenters are responsible for bringing their own posters along or to visit a nearby copy shop at their own expense.

A poster proposal comprises a 500 word long extended summary that describes the poster’s motivation, theoretical framework, method (if applicable), findings (if applicable), and a discussion of the findings (if applicable). A list of references can be put in additionally and does not count as part of the word limit. Figures, tables, and other additional material can be uploaded as a single PDF.

Materials for fixing posters on the walls or poster boards will be provided. Posters will be on display in the foyer for the upcoming conference days. You might consider bringing handout versions of your posters for distribution purpose.

Roundtables

Roundtable sessions offer opportunities for a more discursive exploration of research issues than paper sessions. This may as well involve discussion of works in progress and non-perfect data. The presenters explain their research and research issue and invite the participants to help solving a problem or to discuss emerging data. As the name suggests, roundtable sessions will take place at a board-room style table. Four or five presenters will present their research in about 10 minutes directly followed by a discussion. The roundtable session will be moderated by a chairperson who also keeps track of the time.

Roundtable sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes. Presenters are free to decide on how to present their research. However, one or two-sided handouts are usually preferred.

A roundtable proposal comprises a 500 word long extended summary that describes the presentation’s motivation, theoretical framework, method (if applicable), findings (if applicable), and a discussion of the findings (if applicable). A list of references can be put in additionally and does not count as part of the word limit. Figures, tables, and other additional material can be uploaded via one single PDF.
