III. Type of Presentation: Paper, Poster/Exhibit

The type of presentation you plan will also have implications for the information you include in the Long Description.

Online Oral Presentation 

Due to the many health and travel restrictions, the ICSD Steering Committee decided to convert the 8th ICSD 2020 to an online conference. The online oral presentation system (includes also the Virtual presentation) allows the authors of accepted papers the same publication opportunities as regular presenters. A research work submitted without the participant attending the Conference in person, but presented in the Conference Program and published (if accepted) in the conference proceedings and EJSD Journal.

Accepted papers will be organized into thematic sessions and, while the preparation for your presentation may be different for these two formats, the content of your proposal should include all of the elements of a research, practice, or theory-focused work listed in the proposal submission form.

Participants should be ready in the virtual presentation room at least 10 minutes before the beginning of the session. Authors should introduce themselves to the session chair and upload their Power Point presentations to the common folder. Time of presentation is about 15 minutes for each author in online oral presentation, including discussion.

Please note that no template is required for oral online presentation. The presentation should be a visual presentation of your submitted abstract and should meet the minimum following criteria:

Title: The title should be the same as in the submitted abstract.

The authors’ names and their affiliations: Your usual contact details (e.g. an email address) to allow delegates to follow up discussion.

Size: The power point presentation should not exceed 20MB of size. There is no limit to the number of pages.

Please make sure to check the online Conference program for your scheduled presentation date, time and session.

 

Online Poster/Exhibit 

In addition to your written proposal included in the proceedings, authors selected for a poster presentation will be asked to produce Poster Power point presentation for display in the poster virtual room of the conference. Generally most appropriate for "practice-focused" works (or works in progress), a poster/exhibit proposal may concentrate on one aspect, for example, "description of the practical application".  The proposal should clearly describe the type of information (or product) that will be displayed. The poster should be a visual presentation of your submitted abstract and should meet the minimum following criteria:

Title: The title should be the same as in the submitted abstract.

The authors’ names and their affiliations: Your usual contact details (e.g. an email address) to allow delegates to follow up discussion

Size: The power point presentation should not exceed 20MB of size. You can have more than one page.

Please make sure to check the online Conference program for your scheduled poster presentation date, time and session.

Deadline for Poster Submission: 30 July 2020.
