There will be five tracks for abstract submissions:

  • Long presentation
    (approx. 15 min. presentation on the basis of a full paper)
  • Short presentation
    (approx. 5 min. presentation within a discussion session)
  • Poster presentation
  • Special sessions
    (on the basis of full papers with up to four 15 min. presentations organised by a session chair)
  • Discussion sessions
    (thematically focused session with about four short presentations organised by a session chair).

All of them require an online abstract submission of max. 400 words via the «ConfTool» on the left. Deadline for submission is 30 November 2009. All submission will be reviewed by an international review panel on the basis of scientific quality, relevance to the conference themes and originality before being accepted.

For full paper presentations, the paper has to be submitted no later than 1 July 2010. Full papers can also be submitted before 31 October 2009. Session proposals must include an abstract introducing the rationale of the session, the name of the session chair(s), and the abstracts of the individual contributions (can be submitted individually if relevance to the session is mentioned). Alternative innovative formats are welcome in coordination with the conference organisers.

Conference organisers are undertaking all efforts to ensure funding to reimburse travel costs and participation fees of presenters coming from non-OECD countries.
