Information Regarding Sessions

Deadline for submitting papers, posters, symposiums or workshops is 1th of May. All abstracts will be blind peer reviewed.  You will know whether it is accepted or not within the 10th of June. All accepted abstracts will be published in a book of abstracts, no matter if the conference is held or not. The same will happen with the process of publishing full papers. Deadline for full paper is 16th of October 2020.



Paper presentations may be submitted either individually or as a pre-defined group of two or more authors. Send in an abstract of your paper with max 250 words. All accepted papers will be allocated 30 minutes as part of either a 60- or 90-minute session. In this format, authors present abbreviated versions of their papers for about 15 minutes, followed by comments/critique and audience discussion.



Symposiums are 60-minute multipaper presentations focusing on different aspects of the same topic. Introductory presentation of several papers (authors) is then followed by discussion and feedback. A symposium provides an opportunity to examine specific research issues, problems, or topics from a variety of perspectives. They may present alternative solutions, interpretations, or contrasting points of view on a specific subject, or in relation to a common theme. Often they feature a panel discussion format.


In the interest of making the conference a real place to exchange ideas and experience in a creative way, we offer the opportunity to propose and run a workshop to discuss on-going research in an open way, share best practice and experience, etc. Workshops offer a forum for discussion of a broad range of emerging topics of interest, they are more interactive and informal than paper sessions, and they can involve extended discussion, group brainstorming, and networking for further collaboration.

Workshop proposals must include a clear description of:

  • Workshop goals.
  • Methods, that are going to be used.
  • Outcomes for the participants.


This formal graphic presentation of your topic offers an opportunity for gathering detailed feedback on your work. Posters will be presented after Friday’s lunch break. An abstract should detail the focus of the presentation.

Poster Specification:

  • Recommended dimensions of Poster: 0.60 m width x 0.85 m height.
  • Poster orientation: Portrait

The posters should be set up as early as possible to be visible for the duration of the conference, but presenters are expected to be present at their poster between 14.00 and 14.30 on Friday September 20.
