Presentation Formats & Abstract Submission guidelines
A variety of presentation formats will be available at CogDev 2013, some familiar and some perhaps not - take your pick!
Paper symposia allow up to 5 speakers (or 4 speakers and a discussant) each to give an oral presentation relating to a shared topic of interest. Each presentation has a 20-minute slot (i.e. 15 plus 5 for questions). Paper symposia are organised by a Chair, who should submit a symposium abstract outlining the topic of interest, along with individual abstracts provided by each of the speakers. Click on 'Submit a symposium' below and select 'Paper symposium' as the preferred format.
Poster symposia allow up to 5 presenters to display and discuss posters on a shared topic of interest. Each presenter has 5 minutes to summarise the contents of their poster, after which there are around 30 minutes for individual or group discussion with presenters (total length of a poster symposium is 60 minutes). Poster symposia are organised by a Chair, who should submit the symposium abstract on behalf of the presenters. Click on 'Submit a symposium' below and select 'Poster symposium' as the preferred format.
Individual presentations are also invited; these will be grouped by theme where possible. Presentation slots are 20 minutes (15 plus 5 for questions). Click on 'Submit an individual presentation' below and select 'Individual paper' as the preferred format.
Individual posters (1m x 1m max size, tbc) will be displayed throughout one day of the conference, with informal discussions with presenters during scheduled poster sessions. Click on 'Submit an individual presentation' below and select 'Individual poster' as the preferred format.
If you are a student, you might like to build your conference confidence by offering a 'No-Questions-Asked' 10-minute talk on your research. These are short individual papers, with the promise that no questions will be asked afterwards! Click on 'Submit an individual presentation' below and select 'No Questions Asked' as the preferred format.
When submitting your abstract, please indicate your preferred presentation format, and whether you are willing to consider any of the alternative formats, using the check boxes.
Applicants for the student bursary competition should tick the relevant box on the abstract submission form, and complete the relevant fields.
The word count for abstracts is strictly 300 words. Priority will be given to submissions that describe results of completed work rather than work in progress.
Submissions are now closed for the 2013 conference. Applicants will be notified of decisions by 7th June.
