Submissions & Registration
NEPC invites contributions from practitioners, teachers, school leaders as well as educational and social science researchers and policy analysts. The working language of the conference will be English.
Paper proposals are submitted individually and then formed into a panel by conference organizers based on their discussion of common themes, questions or problems that are related to either research or practice.
- Format: In these 90-minute sessions, presenters discuss abbreviated versions of their studies followed by audience Q&A. A maximum of 4 presenters will be assigned to each panel and each presenter will be given 12-15 minutes to present. Each paper session is assigned a chair/discussant who moderates and monitors time and may also offer commentary and critique, and to elicit discussion following the individual presentations. Paper sessions will be scheduled in meeting rooms with overhead projection technology (but no sound or video capability).
- Proposal Submission Guidelines: Individual submissions should include a proposal of 300 to 400 words.
Poster sessions combine a visual summary of the findings of a paper/study or practice with the opportunity for individualized, informal discussion of the presenter’s work.
- Format: Individual poster presenters set up displays representing their papers/studies in a large area with other presenters. Posters will be set up in a prominent space throughout the day, while dedicated 90-minute poster sessions will facilitate interaction with between poster presenters and interested conference participants. Timing of the poster sessions will be announced once all sessions are finalized.
- Presentation technology is not provided for poster sessions, but presenters may choose to distribute handouts. Boards and pins will be provided for poster display.
Proposal Submission Guidelines: Submissions for poster sessions should include a proposal of 300 to 400 words.
Panel sessions provide an opportunity for coordinated interaction and exchange among presenters working on a common set of themes, questions or problems related to either research or practice. Panel proposals include a group of presenters.
- Format: These 90-minute sessions are submitted by a group of presenters (at least 3) who also designate their own chair/ discussant. A panel session may follow a more conventional format of individual paper presentations followed by discussant comments and audience discussion. However, we encourage presenters to be creative in their organization of group panels by experimenting with different presentation formats to enhance audience engagement or interaction. Sessions will be scheduled in meeting rooms with overhead projection technology (but no sound or video capability).
- Proposal Submission Guidelines: Submissions for panel sessions should include an abstract of up to 750 words describing the overall theme and objective of the panel as well as descriptions of each of the studies or presentations included.
Workshops provide an opportunity for presenters to offer participants a learning experience that goes beyond presenting a study or a practice. You may want to pilot an idea or revise something you have done before.
- Format: These 90 to 120-minute sessions are submitted by an individual or a team of presenters. We encourage presenters to be creative in their organization of the workshops by experimenting with different formats to enhance audience engagement and interaction.
