Session Formats

  • Paper sessions: Oral presentations of four papers; each presentation will be for 15 minutes followed by a discussion with the audience.
  • Poster sessions Posters should outline research planned, in progress or completed. A1 (594mm by 841mm) size is recommended although other sizes will also be accepted.
  • Symposia: an opportunity for established groups of researchers within the school to present several papers together on a shared theme. This would be an ideal format for research centres and networks to share their work with colleagues. The structure of the symposium can be flexible to suit the needs of the proposed focus but typically consists of three contrasting papers and a discussion or synthesis.
