Interactive Session / Workshop
Be the host of your interactive session! Combine your research or project with your favorite participative methodological approach and design your concept for either a 45 minute or a 90 minute interactive session. Shorter activities will be grouped together. Suggestions for methods can also be found e.g. in the Sustainicum Collection. The session should actively involve participants and NOT only offer presentations and discussions!
Please send us an abstract of your interactive session concept.
If we select your interactive action, you will need to act as the host during the session. Required materials for interactive sessions need to be discussed and coordinated with us in advance.
You may present max. 1 poster (format A0 or A1) as a main author. In the "poster walk and talk" you will be able to present your poster.
Selected posters need to be submitted as pdf attachment (max. 10 MB) for the digital conference handbook. In addition, one printed poster (format A0 or A1) has to be brought to the conference. Since a 10 minutes pitch for the final session will be expected for the highest ranked posters, you need to prepare the pitch in advance.
You may present max. 1 paper as a main author. Paper presentations should be precise and include the research question, methodology, learnings and questions for discussion. There will be a maximum of 15 minutes time for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion. If you like to discuss your research more in depth, please submit a proposal for an interactive session (see above).
