Guidelines for proposals for paper sessions, symposia, roundtables and structured poster sessions
An abstract proposal for presentation should be approximately 400 words and include the following:
1. Title of paper
2. Author(s) of proposal and contact information
3. Aim and topic of research or developmental project
4. Theoretical and methodological framework
5. (Anticipated) Findings/ implications
6. Relevance to the conference theme
Symposia (90 min.)
A symposium builds on a theme and is proposed and planned by a symposium organizer.
The papers focus on a common theme. A symposium has a chair (often the organizer) and one or more discussants, who have read the papers in advance. Some symposia will run over more than one session. The symposium organizer will decide how the symposium is to be organized and the time allotment for each presentation. It is recommended that at least two different countries/national perspectives must be represented in the symposium.
The organizer of the symposium submits a proposal (as organizer’s text) with a plan for the symposium including:
1. The title of the symposium,
2. An abstract describing the entire symposium,
3. The names of the contributors, titles of their presentations and their abstracts
Abstracts of the papers for the symposia must be submitted together with the proposal.
Deadline for symposia submission is April 17
