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. We will have discussants for all roundtables.
