Short Paper Presentations
The abstract should not exceed 500 words in length. This will be the version published in the Designs on eLearning 2 013 Conference Proceedings.
Paper presentations will be allocated 20 minutes each. Presenters will be appointed into a time slot as a member of either a pair or a trio. No matter the appointment, each presenter will be allotted his/her full 20 minutes with a single question and answer session at the end of the grouping. So, if allotted into a pair session, each speaker will have 20 minutes and the Q&A will also last 20 minutes, thus lasting a full hour. If designated into a trio session, the three presenters will fill an hour (20 minutes each) and then the Q&A will last 30 minutes, thus lasting for a total of an hour and a half.
Submitted abstracts will be assessed in a blind review process by a committee comprised of distinguished international reviewers.
Panel discussions will be allocated either 30 minutes or 60 minutes (including Q&A time). The proposal will identify whether 30 or 60 minutes are most appropriate. Panels must consist of a minimum of two participants. Panel proposals must identify all panel participants.
Panel discussion proposals are not to exceed 300 words.
Submitted abstracts and panel discussion proposals will be assessed in a blind review process by a committee comprised of distinguished international reviewers.
Proposals must be in PDF format. Bear in mind, that no further editing will occur- they will appear in the conference proceedings just as you submitted it.
You may submit by emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org . Once received, your proposal will be reviewed by two different blindly selected reviewers from our panel. After undergoing reviews, you will be notified as to the status of your proposal.
