About the Conference

Paper types and development opportunities

We have a number of paper presentation types available. 

  • Main papers are typical academic oral presentations, of approx. 30min duration, with an assigned respondent.
  • Poster papers are papers presented on a single display c. 90x120cm, which contain all the main information around a topic. These will be displayed in the coffee/registration area, with authors attending at designated times, and are designed for early stage work.
  • Paper Development Workshop (PDW) papers are somewhat more advanced than the typical poster but still require guidance and refining. They will be presented in small groups, c. 5-6 per 3h session, with a journal author or senior AE providing immediate feedback, as well as group commentary. Note that not all papers selecting this option will be selected for the PDW - this will be done by the indicated journal editor - but those not selected will be offered poster presentation opportunities.
  • Development opportunities will include
    • a set of "mentoring opportunities" with one on one meetings with senior scholars.
    • A workshop of Editors and Elsevier representatives on "How to write great papers and get published" .
    • We will also host a Pitching Research event, more details here, where participants pitch research directly to editors.
    • For more seasoned papers we will also host a "Shark Tank" event, details here.
