- Symposium: presenting individual results within a larger empirical research or new theory developed in a research group through lectures about a specific research or topic;
- Debate symposium: a debate-centred innovative symposium. It differs from a traditional symposium in that presenters are given 5 minutes each to talk. Detailed material should be previously uploaded to the session’s website in order to help the moderator prepare for the debate and actively involve the participants;
- Individual poster presentation: an overview of the results and problem areas of a research in a given topic presented on poster panels. Authors may present their posters in 3 minutes within a specific timeframe allocated for poster presentations. A competition will be held for poster presenters, in which both the poster itself and the presentation will be taken into account.
- Thematic poster workshop presentation: shared poster panel presentations of research groups and ateliers conducting research on a common topic;
- Workshops: introduction of professional trainings, techniques, schools and professional organizations in an innovative and unique way, in small workshops or through round-table discussions.
The time allocated for presentations in traditional symposiums and thematic sessions will be defined together by the given session’s chair and the presenter, on average 15 minutes, followed by a short discussion. The discussion leader of each symposium and thematic poster workshop will encourage and facilitate active scientific debate in the session or workshop. The discussion leader must also be a registered participant.
