We encourage you to base your activity on our Hot topic 2023:
⚙️ Generate ⚙️
Generate ideas, generate thoughts, generate critical thinking, generate exchange, generate interaction, generate discussions, generate debates, and through all of the above: generate new knowledge by connecting different people from different fields and backgrounds to come to a better understanding. Get those brain cogs turning, baby! 🧠
This topic prompt is in no way mandatory, so if there is really no way to force a connection with a topic you’re passionate about, no worries, we value your knowledge above anything else! ☀️
The three formats:
- Individual talk of 30 minutes (15-20 min talk + debate)
- Workshop is a free format of up to 60 minutes.
- Joint talk, where you team up with another conference participant to talk about a common theme, from two different scientific perspectives lasting 60 minutes in total (30-40 min talk + debate).
- Email with your name to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Brief summary of your contribution
- Around 250 words (Half a page in regular font)
- Links and references for further reading
Deadline 01/07 📌
Based on these abstracts we will select the speakers for our slots. The abstracts will be collected and published on our website.
