Participants are invited to submit an abstract for individual presentation, roundtable discussion or performance piece for consideration.
Papers should be 20 minutes in length. Please notify us of any special technical needs (OHP, slide projector, PowerPoint) in plenty of time.
Round table session
A round table session provides an opportunity to discuss different approaches to a single theme, e.g. a particular theoretical or research approach or a domain of work. The normal format is a series of brief presentations (10 minutes), addressing the same topic from 4 – 5 presenters, followed by an extended discussion period. To submit a round table session you must submit:
- A round table session title.
- Name, affiliation and address of the round table chairperson and the presenters.
- A summary of the purpose, rationale, objectives and format of the round table session (not more than 400 words).
Performance pieces should set out clearly:
1. A script or performance description.
2. The number of performers involved.
3. Any special technical or spatial requirements.
4. Performance duration.
All abstracts must be submitted on line and must adopt the following format.
