If you are interested in participating in the conference, please submit an abstract of your presentation or poster presentation here. The abstract should summarize the primary goals of your research, the questions you address, the methodologies you have adopted, a plan for the implementation of your work, and the results you hope to achieve. Abstracts for symposia should indicate the theoretical and practical significance of thestudies involved and their pertinence to questions of educational policy, and also should touch on their shared theoretical and methodological premises and the structure of the symposium. The assessment of the abstracts will be based in large part on the coherence and precision of the summaries. The deadline for electronic submission of an abstract is May 20th, 2013.
Participants in the conference can choose between the following three options:
- Symposia will consist of four oral presentations organized either as presentations of the results or findings of a larger, comprehensive individual research project or as a discussion of a particular research topic from various perspectives. The person responsible for the submission of an abstract for the symposium will serve as its chair and will lead the sections. A respondent selected ahead of time by the chair will assess the four presentations. Symposia will last 90 minutes.
- Conference presentations will be oral presentations in which the speaker acquaints the audience with new research findings. The program committee of the conference will organize the conference presentations into 90 minute sections consisting of four presentations each. The sections will be led by a chair selected by the program committee.
- The poster presentations constitute a new written and interactive form of presenting new research findings. The 8-10 poster presentations, organized into thematically coherent groups by the program committee, will take place following a brief oral presentation of the poster on display. The poster sections, which will last 60 minutes, will be led by a chair selected by the program committee. Further information regarding the poster presentations can be found here.
One person can participate as author or co-author in no more than three presentations or poster presentations and can serve as symposium chair or respondent no more than twice. Presentations of any kind can have no more than four co-authors and each author must be a registered participant in the conference.
All of the presentations for the symposia will be uploaded by the chair once the participants and the respondents have registered and uploaded their personal information.
Presentations will last 15-20 minutes, depending on the decisions of the symposia or section chairs and the presenters. They will be followed by brief periods for discussion and debate and the closing assessments of the respondents.
Participants must be sure to pay the registration fee by the deadline in order to ensure the inclusion of their presentations in the program of the conference and the publication of their abstracts in the conference volume.
