Individual presentations:• Presentation proposals are submitted by one or more individuals.• After the review, the accepted presentations will be grouped into thematic panels by the conference organisers. In such 90-minute panel sessions, three presenters discuss their research or project/programme practice, followed by general discussion and Q&A. Each presenter (or presentation team in case of co-authored presentations) will have 15-20 minutes to present their research/work.• The organisers will assign a chair to the panel, and in some cases a discussant.
Panels:• The conference also accepts proposals for panel sessions.• Proposals for these 90-minute sessions are submitted by a group of panelists (3-4 presentations) discussing a related or common theme.• Such pre-planned panels provide an opportunity to present on larger themes/projects/programmes in a coordinated and coherent manner.• The panelists may also propose their own moderator and discussant (who will also attend the conference).
Proposals for individual presentations and panels must be received by 3 March 2019. All proposals should be in English.
• Presentation proposals should be no longer than 250 words• Panel proposals should be no longer than 500 words.
Both kinds of proposals should clearly identify the topic of the presentation or panel and its relevance to the conference. If appropriate, please include in the proposal title the name of the region, country or countries that the proposal is discussing.
Choose a theme category: Proposals should indicate which of the three themes outlined above the presentation best fits. The conference steering committee reserves the right to include a presentation for consideration in a theme other than the one you may identify, if deemed appropriate.
