Conference Format

Our conference format is renowned for unhurried presentation of papers and discussion, high-quality supportive interaction and feedback.

  • Plenary session with invited leading speakers
  • Presentations of papers in parallel sessions
  • Workshops, panel discussions and interviews
  • Poster presentations

We invite participants to propose collaborative formats for their sessions: e.g. paper, prepared reply and moderated discussion; contrasting approaches to an issue with papers from theorists and practitioners. Contributors are welcome to assemble small panels to offer a series of linked papers.
