Guideline for Sessions & Papers and Publication


Guideline for Sessions

Here is a rough guideline for session timetables. Please note that each panel is entitled to adjust it to their preferences.

There will be panels of two different lengths, 90 min and 120 min sessions, depending on how many speakers there is in one session.

90 minute sessions:
Chair: 5 minutes - introduction of panel and panellists
Panellists: 10-15 minutes
Discussant: 5-10 minutes for comments
Q&A

Roundtables:
Chair: 10 minutes - introduction of panellists and topics, gives questions for panellists
Panellists: 10 minutes - topic chosen in relation to their paper, answering to the questions given by chair
Discussant: 10-15 minutes - summing up the discussion

The chair will introduce the panel and its participants (max 5 minutes). Each panellist will have the maximum of 15 minutes for their presentations. The discussant will have 5-10 minutes to give their comments, which can be either direct questions on each of the papers or/ and general remarks on the broader themes discussed in the panel. Finally there is time for questions from the audience.

There is a PC and a possibility to show Power Points in every lecture hall.


Papers and Publication

The completed papers are supposed to contain approximately 10 pages. The papers will be circulated amongst panel & roundtable chairs and discussants prior to the conference. Further information will be sent to the conference participants later on.
