Conference Formats

Presenters  and workshop facilitators should avoid the repetition of work already  presented at an ECArTE conference. We are seeking new and innovative  proposals, which respond to the theme.

Normally, sessions will adhere to the following timings and structures

  • PAPER SESSIONS Paper presentations: 30 minutes Each paper presentation will be followed by a 15 minute Question and Answer period
  • WORKSHOPS: 2 HOURS A workshop session should explore an element or aspect of the theme of  the conference. It should be experiential and not include lengthy spoken  introductions and commentaries. (Please note there is no provision for  IT and PowerPoint equipment in the workshop rooms).
  • POSTER PRESENTATION SESSIONS Abstracts for e-posters and paper posters are welcome. Presenters will  be required to bring with them posters ready for display or electronic  presentation. A session will be within the programme, when poster  presenters will be available to answer questions and to discuss ideas  arising from the content of their posters.
  • PERFORMANCES Performances should be no more than 30 minutes in length. Please note that the conference centre can provide only minimal technical equipment to support your performance.
  • PANELS  Panels will normally be 90 minutes and consist of 4-6 members, each of whom will prepare an initial statement on the selected topic
