Conference Session Formats There are four types of proposal submissions possible for this conference.
  • Oral Presentation
  • Symposium
  • Poster Presentation
  • Workshops

Oral Presentation
This presentation format allows for 15 minutes of individual presentation time followed by a 5 min discussion moderated by the session chairperson. Presentations will be grouped by topics.

Each symposium will be organized by a Chairperson and will contain four (4) presentations concerning a common topic of interest. The symposium contributors must be from Institutions of at least three (3) countries. There will be one chairperson identified for each symposium and this will typically be the symposium organizer. The symposium chairperson may be one of the presenting authors. The symposium chairperson / organiser is in charge of submitting the symposium title and abstract for the whole symposium, as well as providing the name and contact details of a discussant. S/he will also submit the abstract of the four individual presentations making up the symposium, using the EUROVARIETY2021 template for each submission.

Poster Presentation
Poster sessions will be scheduled in the conference programme. Each poster presentation will include a graphic presentation of a research study on visual display of size 90m x 120cm in “portrait” format. A short oral presentation of 3 minutes for each poster is given to an audience gathered as a group. After the authors’ brief presentation, an in-depth discussion between them and the audience follows in the area of the poster displays. The poster sessions offer researchers the opportunity to present their work in a visual format and are conducive to richer interaction and discussion.

Workshops enable presenters to display, explain and familiarize users with an innovative approach, a teaching or research tool, an teaching-learning sequence or some other aspect of research or teaching practice using technology and laboratory. Learning-by-doing occupies most of the session, and any presentations are brief. Adequate time for reflective discussion is important. For each workshop an abstract according to the template should be submitted.
