Forms of presentation

Presentations may take various forms. These are:

  • individual papers (which will be grouped - generally three to a session - by the conference organisers)
  • panel discussions: papers presented in organised panels focusing on single sub-themes and spanning one to three sessions
  • round-table discussions on especially topical sub- themes and spanning one session only
  • posters
  • video and film presentations
  • informal discussions of research work in progress led by researchers involved

There will be up to twelve parallel sessions as required. Each session will occupy 1.5 hours.


Leading a panel or discussion

The panel and roundtable discussions will be coordinated by panel and roundtable leaders who will propose their topics and in turn invite other contributors to join them. In the lead-up to the conference, panel and roundtable leaders will be expected to stay in close contact with one or another designated person among the organisers of the conference.

The leaders of panels will have the discretion

  • to invite whomever they wish to participate in a panel,
  • to organise the discussion as they see fit (as a set of formal papers or as a roundtable discussion) and
  • to propose that the panel should straddle more than one session.
