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.
  • 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.
  • Dialogue Sessions: 90 minute sessions featuring paper presentations with a specific thematic focus, project presentations, panels, discussions or workshops related to the conference theme. The dialog sessions include non-academic participants and often contain innovative formats. All dialogue sessions have been prepared and submitted by an external session organizer.
  • 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.
