ROUND TABLE SUBMISSION
A proposal for a round table should consist of an abstract (300 words at maximum) and an extended summary (1000 words at maximum, including references). The deadline for submitting your poster is December 17th 2016. Your proposal will be accepted, rejected or offered an alternative presentation format. The decision will be e-mailed to you by February 1st 2016.
Each round table session will consist of 2 or 3 conceptually linked projects. At the conference, each presenter has 5 minutes to introduce his/her project and raise one or two open questions. 25 minutes are intended for discussion. Presenters should prepare handouts for the other participants, but no PowerPoint presentation.
When your proposal is accepted as a round table, you are requested to create a handout and to submit it along with an updated abstract (300 words), which will be published in the conference proceedings, by March 31st 2016.
You will receive feedback on your handout by a peer who participates in the 20th JURE Conference. Furthermore, you will also be requested to give feedback on a handout yourself. The feedback procedure is meant as an opportunity for improvement, not for a summative assessment (as the proposal has already been accepted).
The round table handouts can be considered as mini-posters. You can create your handouts using MS Powerpoint (for more information on how to create a poster, please check the poster guidelines). The MS Powerpoint file can then be saved as .pdf document. Please note that you are required to bring your own copies of your handout for the participants. It is recommended that you bring 20 copies of your round table handout in ISO A4 format (and/ or the extended summary) for interested participants. For further information, see the round table guidelines below.
After a successful submission, you will receive a confirmation e-mail. If you decide not to participate in the conference, please inform us as soon as possible, since participants are matched to each other for peer feedback.
When submitting your poster, your name SHOULD NOT be stated in the document so that a double blind review process is possible.
Round table guidelines
To make it easier for the participants to take part in the discussion, you have to make a hand-out of your research.
- Format: ISO A4, one-sided
- Title: The shortest but still informative summary of the roundtable presentation.
- Authors: List the name(s) of the author(s) (the presenting author is listed as the first author), affiliation, contact address(es), and country. [Please omit this info when submitting your handout for the second phase of review, since a double-blind review process will be followed!]
- Problem statement: The issues that you come across in your research and want to present to your audience. Depending on the issues raised, certain illustrations, graphs or numbers might be added to clarify the issues at hand.
- Round-table questions: One or two specific questions (relevant to your study) you want to ask the audience about the issues you have.
Handouts are intended to support the short five-minute presentation, as well as support the discussion which follows. It should not be very lengthy, as reading a full page will take too long. Ideally, a new reader should be able to read the handout in one or two minutes and be able to take part in the discussion. To reach this aim, make it clear, structured, concise, and attractive. Avoid long texts and use diagrams, graphs and/or tables to visualize your information effectively. Make sure you bring enough handouts; there may be people who do not attend your session but who may still be interested in it.
