  • Paper presentation: presentation of 20 minutes followed by 10 minutes questions/discussion. Three paper presentations are grouped together around a theme in one session.


  • Poster presentation: posters presenting research results and case studies will be available to be viewed at all times during the conference. Posters will be grouped by theme.


  • Symposium: A group of three or four papers submitted around one theme.
    • 3 x 20 minutes presentation and 30 minutes discussion
    • 4 x 15 minutes presentation and 30 minutes discussion


  • Workshop: informative interactive sessions of 90 minutes in which the participants are engaged in demonstrations, hands-on activities and/or discussion, based on research or practices.


  • Dynamic flash presentation: presentation of 10 minutes by young/starting researchers followed by 20 minutes discussion. The idea is to provide young researchers an opportunity to present to a larger audience and be seen in the international community of researchers. These sessions would also be for launching hot topics in a more informal session.


  • Inspirational talk: TED-like talk with the intention to inspire the audience, for example by storytelling and/or sharing future perspectives. Exactly 18 minutes presentation without questions/discussion. Four talks are grouped together in one session.
