About the Conference

Paper types and development opportunities
We have a number of paper presentation types available.

Main papers are typical academic oral presentations, of approx. 30min duration, with an assigned respondent.
Poster papers are papers presented on a single display c. 90x120cm, which contain all the main information around a topic. These will be displayed in the coffee/registration area, with authors attending at designated times, and are designed for early stage work.
Paper Development Workshop (PDW) papers are somewhat more advanced than the typical poster but still require guidance and refining. They will be presented in small groups, c. 5-6 per 3h session, with a journal author or senior AE providing immediate feedback, as well as group commentary. Note that not all papers selecting this option will be selected for the PDW – this will be done by the indicated journal editor – but those not selected will be offered poster presentation opportunities.

Development opportunities will include

  • a set of “mentoring opportunities” with one on one meetings with senior scholars;
  • A workshop of Editors and Elsevier representatives on “How to write great papers and get published”;
  • We will also host a Pitching Research event, more details here, where participants pitch research directly to editors;
  • For more seasoned papers, we will also host a “Shark Tank” event.
