Please indicate whether your abstract is for a paper, symposium or roundtable
A paper presents ongoing or completed research. The organizing committee will group papers into a number of sessions, each comprising a maximum of three papers, with oral presentations and discussions of papers. The time allotted for each paper will be 30 minutes: 20 minutes for a presentation by the author(s) and 10 minutes for discussion.
We invite proposals for symposium sessions. A symposium session presents papers focused on a common theme and is proposed and planned by a symposium organizer. A symposium has a chair (often the organizer) and one or more discussants who have read the papers in advance. Some symposia will overlap more than one session. The symposium organizer will decide how the symposium is to be organized and the time to be allotted for each presentation. It is recommended that at least two different countries/national perspectives be represented in the symposium.
The organizer of the symposium should submit a symposium proposal with a plan for the symposium that includes all the following elements in a single document:
Please submit only one document for the symposium proposal containing first the abstract of the symposium theme followed by the abstracts for the individual papers in the symposium.
We also welcome proposals for roundtable sessions. A roundtable session is a forum for the presentation and discussion of developmental work and research plans. Roundtable sessions are intended for focused, small-group discussions of research in progress, practitioner experiences, educational development initiatives, and issues concerning institutional effectiveness and improvement. It is recommended that at least two different countries/national perspectives be represented in the roundtable session.
The organizer of the roundtable session should submit a proposal with a plan for the discussion that includes all the following elements in a single document:
