SUBMIT / REVIEW

In this section, you can find more information on the EARLI 2017 submission and review process.

Poster guidelines can be found here.

SUBMISSION TYPES

Paper

PAPER

Paper sessions are oral presentations of four papers, followed by a discussion with the audience. It is important that empirical papers have data and results, or they will not be accepted. Research that is at an earlier stage is very suitable for Round Table or Poster sessions. Theoretical papers, of course, are welcome.

 

 

 

Paper sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes. Four presenters are given 15 minutes presentation time followed by five minutes for questions. At the end of all presentations there is a 10-minute open discussion.

 

Poster

POSTER

Interactive poster sessions involve five or six posters, visually presenting research studies. A short oral presentation of about 5 minutes for each poster is given to an audience gathered as a group. After the authors’ brief presentation, an in-depth discussion between them and the audience follows. The poster sessions offer researchers the chance to present their work in a visual format and offer more opportunities for interaction and discussion.

 

Poster sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes, following the format above. Materials for fixing posters on the walls or poster boards will be provided.

 

Symposium

SYMPOSIUM

Symposia provide an opportunity to present research on one topic, often from multiple perspectives, compiling a coherent set of papers for discussion. Symposia sessions are directed by a chair, involving four presenters and one discussant, from at least three different countries. We recommend that each individual submission is checked for its own quality and its relevance and coherence to the topic of the symposium prior to formal submission to EARLI 2017.

 

A symposium is scheduled for 90 minutes, allowing 15 minutes presentation time per speaker, ten minutes for the discussant, and 20 minutes for open discussion.

 

Round Table

ROUND TABLE

Round table sessions offer opportunities for a more discursive exploration of research issues. This may well involve discussion of work in progress. The presenters explain their research and research issue, and invite the participants to help to discuss emerging data or to solve a research issue or problem. Round table sessions will take place in seminar rooms with a board-room style table. Three to five presenters will explain and discuss their research one after another.

Round table sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes.

ICT

ICT DEMONSTRATION

ICT Demonstrations allow presenters to display, explain and familiarise users with a potentially useful teaching or research tool or method. The presentation may include references to completed research, but the point of the session is to demonstrate the tool, not present the research for criticism. The audience may offer their viewpoints and share their experiences with similar tools or different tools for the same purpose.


ICT Demonstrations are scheduled for 90 minutes.

REVIEW PROCESS


The review process is the most important aspect of organizing the EARLI conference, as the outcome of this process will determine the quality of the participants' experience.  As a result, EARLI strives to ensure that the process is rigorous and transparent.
