Call for Workshop Proposals

There will be limited availability for half-day workshops. Abstract submissions for these workshops should include an overview/synopsis as well as the proposed programme (material to be covered and details of proposed speakers), not to exceed 500 words in total.

Workshop submissions will be peer-reviewed, as well as undergoing programmatic consideration.

The closing date for submissions is Thursday 30th of June 2022.

Call for Symposium Proposals

These are typically thematically-bundled assemblies of up to 4 presentations, with 90-120 minutes of allocated time. Symposiums should be proposed by a symposia organizer, and a single submission should contain a symposium synopsis, including list of speakers, as well as a brief summary of each speakers’ presentation.

Symposium submissions will be peer-reviewed as well as undergoing programmatic consideration. A limited number of slots will be available.

The closing date for submissions is Thursday 30th of June 2022.
