Professional materials

Deadline for submission of presentation proposals and abstracts: 20 March 2023.

The Session is open to registered participants only. After completing the registration, it is possible to upload and submit professional materials through the website. The upload is successful if all of the designated authors are registered.

The upload process can be saved and continued later. After completing the upload, the abstracts are submitted with the “submit” button.

Please note that all abstracts must be 1500-3000 characters in length!

When uploading abstracts, please take into account that a participant can be the first author twice, in one case a symposium president, in one case an opponent and in five cases can be second and third and fourth author.

Opportunities for individual professional participation in the Session:

  • thematic presentation: presentation of new, unpublished empirical research results, new approaches to theory building;
  • symposium: presentation of individual results of a major empirical research project, new theories developed in a research group, with presentations organised around a specific research project or topic, maximum number of presentations per symposium: 4. The symposium and its presentations can be uploaded by its chairman, both the authors and the opponent must be registered participants, and the chairman receives the evaluation. The symposium can be uploaded and submitted after the symposium presentations have been uploaded and submitted.
  • individual poster presentation: an overview of the results of research on a given topic, or problem area, presented on poster panels. The poster sessions will take place at the times indicated in the program. The authors of the posters are requested to bring the posters to the conference in printed form and to place them to the designated places no later than 10 minutes before the session. The organizers will provide the necessary equipment. Poster dimensions: max. 70 cm wide and max. 100 cm long. (We can display the posters in portrait format.) The presenter must ensure that the posters are removed at the end of the break after the session.

The average duration of the presentations in the traditional symposia and thematic sessions is about 15 minutes, as decided by the chair of the symposium or thematic session and the speakers, followed by a short discussion and debate. The symposium discussion leader (debater) will facilitate an active scientific exchange during the session.
