- WORKSHOPS: 2 HOURS A workshop session should explore an element or aspect of the theme of the conference. It should be experiential and not include lengthy spoken introductions and commentaries. (Please note there is no provision for IT and PowerPoint equipment in the workshop rooms).
- POSTER PRESENTATION SESSIONS Abstracts for e-posters and paper posters are welcome. Presenters will be required to bring with them posters ready for display or electronic presentation. A session will be within the programme, when poster presenters will be available to answer questions and to discuss ideas arising from the content of their posters.
- PERFORMANCES Performances should be no more than 30 minutes in length. Please note that the conference centre can provide only minimal technical equipment to support your performance.
