Description submission types


1. Paper presentation (submission closed)


Your contribution will be an Oral Presentation of 15 minutes + 5 minutes Q&A OR Oral Shotgun Presentation of 5 minutes + 5 minutes discussion. Presenters assigned to the Oral Shotgun program are advised to conclude their 5-minute talk with some of their own questions or ideas they would like to discuss with attendees. The presentation type will be allocated by the Scientific Committee.

 

2. Symposium (submission closed)


This is a series of 4 to 5 self-selected abstracts/papers from a group of conference delegates, moderated by a self-appointed chair. The group proposes a title for the symposium that speaks to the content of the individual abstracts/papers contributing to the symposium. The length of the Symposium will be 90 minutes. Abstracts/papers submitted under a symposium heading should not be resubmitted as an individual Paper Presentation.
 

3. Workshop (submission closed)


Your contribution should include an activity that engages the participants. The time slot provided for a workshop is 90 minutes.
 

4. Game Changer (submission closed)


Game changers serve as inter-, multi- or transdisciplinary think thanks that will run over three days and will end up in a plenary where findings, strategies or lines of argumentation can be shared with the conference delegates.  Game changer topics are meant to address broader political or strategically important domains that cut across the community of qualitative researchers and inquirists and demand the communities attention. They are also meant to initiate discussions and the further development of qualitative responses to major challenges or newly emerging trends in society.  Leaders of think thanks are encouraged to propose a topic.  Delegates that subscribe to a game changer session are encouraged to attend at least two sessions as well as the plenary.  The group will work together to create a viewpoint, policy brief, strategic paper or response to the topic that can be shared via the European Network of Qualitative Inquiry.  Where necessary, the Network can serve as a collective platform through which these viewpoints are disseminated simultaneously in relevant journals or provide further support to carry on with the work beyond the congress. The time slot provided for a Game Changer is 90 minutes.


5. Creative Research (submission closed)

 

These slots are preserved for researchers using progressive dissemination formats to present their research findings. This includes but is not limited to auto-ethnographic performances, poetry, ethno-drama or theatre, dance, video or music productions, pop-up installations, artefacts etc. Creative research sessions should have a maximum duration of 30 minutes, including a question and answer round with the public. You should bring your own specialized equipment (sound systm, hang-up systems, wall paper, laptop etc.). The abstract should include specifications about the minimum and maximum amount of space needed for the performance (in square meters). Bear in mind that there are only a limited number of slots available for creative research type of contributions. Choose wisely.
