  • Description of the planned Poster/Demonstration; should emphasize the problem, what was done, and why the work is important

ROUNDTABLES

Presentation time: 30 minutes, live presentation
Submission length: 2-6 pages
Proceedings length: 4-6 pages

These sessions are meant to allow maximum interaction in informal, small-group discussions on a single topic. The format is appropriate for papers, projects, or work-in-progress that encourage discussion.

These sessions are also appropriate for discussion of instructional strategies, procedures, and evaluation procedures. The idea is not to give a definitive workshop on the topic but to provide participants with enough information to help them decide whether their needs can be met with the program or procedure.

If software is to be discussed, include a description of the software and the objectives of the session.

A Symposium is a collection of Full and/or Brief Papers on a theme that has been coordinated and led by the symposium’s leader(s). Each Symposium that is accepted will be allocated two adjacent hour-long slots in the conference program.

The Symposium leader should provide an abstract briefly describing the symposium and a submission file with the following sections:

  1. introduction that links the theme to the literature and its significance for the field of information technology and education, around 150 word abstracts of each paper,
  2. list of paper titles and authors, with their organizations, and countries in the order they will be presented and indicating which will be presented the first and second hours, and
  3. outline of how the symposium will be organized.

After acceptance, the Symposium coordinator will be asked to invite Symposium authors to submit their papers to a specific web site. Until then, authors should NOT submit their individual papers for the Symposium.

Contributing authors may choose to publish their papers in the Proceedings as a Full or Brief Paper. The Symposium abstract will only appear on the online conference platform.

 


ASYNCHRONOUS PRESENTATIONS 

In consideration of presenters who may be unable to present a live online session, Asynchronous Presentations carry the same validity (publication, certification, etc.) and hold the same requirements as the live sessions. These papers are pre-recorded and available to attendees to view and comment, ask questions, and discuss with presenters throughout the conference.

All virtual sessions are presented asynchronously. Accepted submission authors will be sent instructions on how to submit their recorded presentation. This recording is required. Authors will also have access to all conference papers and presentations via AcademicExperts.org. Asynchronous presenters are required to post an opening comment/question on their presentation page, and respond to attendee feedback during the conference week.

To be included in the Final Program, accepted Virtual Presenters must register by the confirmation deadline and submit their presentation file. All presentation files will be reviewed.
