Guidance for Presenters

Poster presentations (Abstract 150‐300 words)

Posters will form part of a session where conference delegates will be invited to browse posters and speak to presenters. Posters should be A1 in size and can be either portrait or landscape orientation. Posters will continue to be displayed throughout the conference and can be accompanied by handouts.

Oral presentations (Abstract 250‐500 words)

Oral presentations are part of a chaired session, which includes a number of short presentations (20 minutes each; 15 mins talk + 5 mins for questions). Presentations should analyse innovative work either in progress, or completed, and must be clearly linked to the conference themes/disciplines. Time should also be left for discussion and questions.

You may wish to submit a poster for display that supplements your presentation; poster guidelines are provided above.

Workshops (Abstract 250‐300 words)

Workshop sessions are up to 1 hour and should provide participants with an interactive, simulated or practical experience, e.g. using new e‐learning tools or devices, immersive environments, etc. You may wish to allow time for debriefing with participants in order to discuss their experience of the simulated or practical activity.

Abstracts should provide a brief description of the activity/session. You may also wish to submit a poster for display that supplements your workshop session; poster guidelines are provided above.

Full papers (2000‐4000 words)

We are proposing to publish papers based on presentations at the conference in the New Directions in the Teaching of Physical Sciences e-journal.

Papers will be accepted from any STEM discipline and all speakers are invited to contribute papers based on their presentations or posters after the conference. The closing date for submissions of full conference papers is 30th September 2020.
