What is a Session?

A Session is a space for multiple paper presentations or a dialogue on a common theme. Sessions have been 90 minutes in duration in the past. The time for your presentation will depend on the number of Session participants.

What is a Workshop?

A Workshop is a space for people to participate in an interactive dialogue on a particular theme/topic. Workshops have been 90 minutes in duration in the past. The time for your participation in this workshop will depend on the number of Workshop participants.

What is a Roundtable?

A Roundtable is a small gathering of individuals who are presenting their papers on topics that share a common theme.Roundtables are a great opportunity to present your research and to collect very helpful feedback from other presenters and attendees. If you are submitting an independent paper that is not linked to a Session or Workshop, you should submit your paper for a Roundtable. Roundtables have been 75 minutes in duration in the past. The time allotted for your Paper presentation will depend on the number of Roundtable presenters.
