Presentation Types

Abstracts may be submitted for the following:

Oral presentation – Research Stream

These will form the 1 hour parallel sessions for 20 minutes each, including 5 minutes for questions. Presenters are requested NOT to read their papers, but to discuss the essence of their research and submit their full papers for publication after the Congress.

Oral presentation

These are presentations for non-researchers such as teachers and artists to present their school’s programs, artist’s work, projects etc. Presenters are requested to talk to their PowerPoint Presentations, to discuss their work and submit their full papers for publication after the Congress.

Pecha Kucha presentation

Pecha Kucha is a presentation methodology in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds total). The format keeps concise and fast paced in groups and is followed by discussion. For further information visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pecha_Kucha

These will be grouped in 1 hour blocks – approx 4-5 presentations x 7mins will take at least 40 mins, plus 20 minutes discussion time.

Poster presentation

Posters will be displayed from Tuesday morning 8 July until Thursday afternoon 10 July. Times will be allocated for poster discussion and presentation.

Panel presentation

Each panel will comprise of two equally important components:

  • Presentations from the members of the panel;
  • A question and answer session between the floor and the panel members

The duration of each panel will be 60 minutes. The total duration of panel members’ presentations should not exceed 45 minutes, and so allow at least 15 minutes for questions and answers.

Each panel will consist of both Chairpersons and panellists, and panel organisers should be clear about the role of each member when inviting people to participate in a panel discussion. The chairperson will coordinate the preparation and theme of presentations, be the timekeeper, and animate the Q&A session. The chairperson will also assist in collating panel presentations for the final conference proceedings to be published after the event. Panellists will provide brief presentation on the theme of the panel and in accordance with the guidelines given by the chairperson; each panellist is expected to provide a different perspective on the topic of discussion

The chair of each panel discussion will be required to submit a title and abstract and panel presenters will also be required to submit their paper titles and abstracts as part of the panel. We advise that three or four papers are submitted.

In-conference workshop

Workshops will be 2 hours in duration. The following information is required as part of your abstract:

  • An abstract that addresses the themes and includes the processes and techniques
  • Confirm the maximum number of participants in your workshop (no more than 16)
  • Inform the requirements for the workshop (e.g. physical space and equipment)
  • Please specify the materials you will bring with you
  • Trestle tables will be provided

Please note: Workshops will be held in the MCG, most likely on the concourse or other suitable spaces. Clean ‘dry’ workshops may be held in any of the facilities available.
