Symposium Submission Types
There are several ways in which you can make a contribution:
Paper - Papers represent original research, application (including full case studies) or development and should be between 3000 and 5000 words.
Review - A paper that summarises the current state of understanding on a topic in between 2000 and 5000 words. This is likely to include information that has been drawn from previously published studies.
Case Study Presentation - A slide-based report of a specific application (typically relating to the performance of a specific engineering, or environmental, system) that is likely to include both qualitative and quantitative investigation. If accepted the final case study should include brief keynotes for the audience.
Opinion paper - This provides an opportunity to present a brief, justified opinion that should recognise contrary opinions or arguments and be supported with appropriate evidence and would be typically be between 1000 and 3000 words
Poster - Posters provide the opportunity to summarise information of research, application or case-study concisely and share your work and generate discussion. This will be presented in a dedicated session together with other posters for delegates to visit. A poster can be accompanied by a written paper and there are optional opportunities to provide a four-minute compendiary ‘poster pitch’ presentation (see below) to all delegates in a plenary session
Accepted papers, reviews, case studies and opinions will normally be delivered as part of a symposium session with a presentation of approximately 18 minutes (plus questions and answers)
The Compendiary ‘Poster Pitch’ is a limited availability option to present a four-minute fast-track highlights presentation with limited slides to a plenary session of all delegates. This is available to those who have been commissioned to produce a poster.
