IST 2017 Conference session formats

Across the different thematic tracks, the conference will be structured using different formats:

  • Paper Sessions: 90 minute sessions with three full paper presentations and discussion.
    • Full paper submission deadline: May 15th, 2017
    • Full paper length: 6 000- 10 000 words including references, table and figure text.
    • References can be in any style or format as long as the style is consistent. Where applicable, author(s) name(s), journal title/book title, chapter title/article title, year of publication, volume number/book chapter and the pagination must be present.
    • Failing to submit a full paper before deadline may result in rescheduling or significantly reduced speaking time.
  • Speed talk Sessions: 45 minute sessions with 4-5 short presentations, where an idea or a central research finding is presented in 4 minutes. The rest of the session is dedicated to interaction between the presenters and other session participants in small group discussions (app. 20-30 minutes) focusing on the individual presentations. 
    • This session  format does not require the submission of full papers, but you can update your extended abstract before 15th May, 2017.
  • Dialogue Sessions: 90 minute sessions featuring paper presentations with a specific thematic focus, project presentations, panels, discussions or workshops related to the conference theme. We specifically invite session proposals that include non-academic participants and innovative formats. A dialogue session is prepared and submitted by an external session organiser.
    • This session format  does not require the submission of full papers.
  • Poster Session: posters will be displayed throughout the conference at a central location. There will also be a time slot exclusively dedicated to poster presentations.
    • Update: Accepted posters can upload their poster in pdf. format through their personal page. The poster will be visible for conference delegates through the online conference programme.
