Annual Research Conference  /  Types of Proposals

Types of Proposals

All submissions are subject to a peer review process.
Proposals are invited for:

Individual Papers
Each paper accepted for individual presentation will be allocated a minimum of 30 minutes for presentation and discussion.

Discussion Workshops
The review process identifies papers which could be grouped together for discussion and thus allow space in the programme for a wide and varied range of research work to be presented.

These workshops will offer the opportunity for a 15 minute individual presentation and will provide greater time for discussion of papers submitted in advance on related themes.

These provide the opportunities for presentation of related papers on a single theme; the minimum number is 4 and a maximum is 6 papers per symposium. Symposia submissions can be made by one individual and all papers can be submitted together. Alternatively, a planned symposium can be set up and contributors may then add their papers individually using the online submission system. Proposals must state clearly the rationale for the theme, the names of the convenor and/or the chair of the symposium, a discussant, if appropriate; the names and details of all participating presenters plus the title of each presentation planned. The symposium proposal should include an abstract and a paper for each presentation.

These comprise discussions of linked contributions for which there is an overall chair/discussant and a minimum of three paper presentations for each session. The Roundtable format may be especially suitable for ‘work in progress’ submissions, providing a platform for discussion with other researchers working on related topics. Proposals for roundtables must make clear what links the presentations and MUST include an abstract and a paper for each presentation. The proposal must include the name(s) of the chair/discussant and all participating presenters.

Poster Sessions
Posters provide will provide an opportunity to engage your audience in discussion and invite feedback using a visual format and should not be regarded as a less important presentation format to any others. In particular they enable participants to present ongoing research to an international audience especially pilot studies, preliminary results or information on new projects. Posters will be on show in a specific location throughout the Conference and will prominently displayed to attract the widest attention throughout the conference.
