Purpose and goals
Thematic sessions include the presentation of individual papers organized by the Conference Program Committee in the thematic areas. Papers are presented in consecutive sessions, in 20-minute presentation blocks, with sufficient time after all formal presentations for group discussion. Online presentations have discussion areas for the whole session, where comments and questions can be directly related to the whole topic or specific presentations. This template allows for more participation and discussion of ideas and concepts from the collection of articles.
What is a topic presentation session like?
Thematic sessions will include 3 paper presentations in a 75-minute block or 4 paper presentations in a 100-minute block. Please prepare for the 20 minute formal presentation and focus your oral statements on the main results and implications that are the essence of your work. This structure allows for 15 to 20 minutes of extensive discussion after presentations, during which presenters have the opportunity to respond to questions from the audience or ideas generated by other articles and group discussions. Explain in detail.
Can I use visual aids?
All article presentation rooms are equipped with screens and data projectors. Conference delegates are asked to bring their laptops with them (unless in the delegate information package, go to the conference venue page and download the delegate information package for complete equipment information; this package is available 6 weeks before the conference start date). ). If you are a Mac user, please bring the correct Mac VGA adapter. Note that ceiling projectors are not provided for transparency in meeting rooms.
How should I prepare?
During the presentation of the article with the subject, be sure to clearly state the structure and main points of your argument at the beginning and again in the summary. Visual tools and keyword slides are useful for providing variety and visualization of your arguments. However, you should refrain from reading PowerPoint slides. Repeat your presentation aloud several times, if possible in front of a listener who can give you feedback on the form and content. If you are showing slides or media with text, mark in your text where each slide or clip is located and include it in your practice. For the online version of your presentation, we recommend a video recording format that includes (at least) a small version of your face as well as PowerPoint. You also need to make sure that your speech matches the 20 minutes you are giving. There is a latitude for video versions of your presentation that last more than twenty minutes, although we strongly recommend that the length be unnecessary.
Will there be time for questions?
This structure allows for 15 to 20 minutes for extensive discussion after all presentations at the conference, during which presenters have the opportunity to respond in detail to questions from the audience or ideas generated by others. Explain.
