To prevent technical issues during your conference presentation, we recommend you to record your presentation as a video in advance and send it to us via WeTransfer before 31st May.

Abstracts are required for all types of contributions (Presentation with full paper, Presentation without full paper, Workshop, PechaKucha). The deadline for abstract submission is 15th March 2021.

Register on the conference system. Then, log into the delegate area, go to “My contributions” and “Submit new contribution”.

Prepare your abstract as a separate file. The length of the abstract should be between 500 and 1000 words. You may include references in the document, but the references don’t count into the word limit.

Fill in the information about your contribution and about the authors on the submission form, but do not include information about authors in the document you are uploading, because the review process is double-blind; Please omit or redact (e.g. replace with “redacted for blind review”) any information which may identify the authors during the review process. You should include this in the final version.

Please note that after submission it is not possible to edit your abstract. When we have received feedback from two reviewers, we will send their comments to you to give you the opportunity to improve and resubmit your abstract. The deadline for final versions of abstracts is 1st May 2021. All accepted abstracts will be published in the book of abstracts.

You may present results at the conference that have already been published or are intended for publication elsewhere. However, please make this clear in the abstract.

Full papers

Full papers are to be submitted after the conference. You may use feedback from conference participants to improve your paper or to conduct additional research. The deadline for full paper submission is 1st September 2021.

The word limit for a full paper is 8000 words including tables, figures, abstract, and reference list. The abstract with the full paper should be 100 – 200 words. Please use APA 7th edition to format your references. All figures should be black and white. The instructions for full papers are subject to change, based on the publisher’s requirements.

Please note that acceptance for presentation at the conference does not guarantee the publication of full papers. The full papers will undergo another round of double-blind peer review. Only accepted papers will be included in the book. The deadline for reviewer feedback is 1st October 2021; The final versions of the papers are due by 15th November 2021. The conference book will be published in 2022.

PechaKucha Inspired Contributions

PechaKucha inspired presentations replace posters with another visual format in the online environment of our conference.

PechaKucha is a popular format of visual storytelling among architects and artists. Its traditional form has quite strict rules: it is a presentation consisting of 20 slides (images) and the presenter has 20 seconds for commenting each of the slides, hence each presentation lasts for exactly 6 minutes and 40 seconds. You can find more details at the official PechaKucha website:

Our PechaKucha inspired presentation provides more freedom – our strict requirement is a short visual presentation with an absolute minimum of text on the slides. We recommend using circa 20 slides, the presentation should be from 5 to 8 minutes.

The submission of the presentation is a pre-recorded video. Share your videos with us via before the 1st June.

The videos will be presented in a special session – few videos will be played in a row and then there will be a discussion on all of them. Details of the organisation will depend on the amount of the submitted videos.

If you are looking for inspiration, you can check this PechaKucha named The Teacher Who Learned to Listen (and it is worth watching not only to see how PechaKucha looks like).
