Submissions are welcome in three formats: symposium, paper and poster. One participant should be a first author of no more than two presentations.Regardless of the number of presentations one should act once as a chairperson of a symposium and once as a discussant.
Symposia provide an opportunity to examine one topic in depth preferably from different perspectives. Symposium sessions are directed by a chairperson, involving three or four presenters and a discussant from at least two different countries. A symposium is scheduled for one and half hours, and is comprised of three or four presentations followed by a discussion. Symposia proposals are submitted by the chairperson. Contributors of the symposia should register for the conference before submission.
Paper sessions are oral presentations of four or five papers, followed by a discussion with the audience. Paper sessions are scheduled for one and a half hours, normally with four or five presenters, each with approximately 15 minutes for their presentation. Thematic sessions are moderated by a chair appointed by the Scientific Programme Committee.
Poster sessions consist of 8–10 approximately 5 minutes oral presentations about each poster. After the authors’ brief presentations poster sessions offer opportunities for individualized, informal discussions with interested attendees. Poster sessions are moderated by a chair appointed by the Scientific Programme Committee. Please bring posters sized 150x150cm.
