Types of abstract submissions

Conference paper abstract

Standard conference presentation. If successful, the abstract will be grouped with other abstracts exploring similar themes and placed into a conference track parallel session.

Poster presentation abstract

Presenters can also opt for a poster presentation instead of a standard conference presentation. Please follow the same format as for the standard conference presentation but indicate clearly that it will be a poster presentation.

Roundtable abstract

This option allows you (as the Roundtable Convenor) to propose a roundtable session that connects with one of the conference tracks. The roundtable will need to be conceptualized in the abstract along with a clear indication of how the focus of the roundtable connects with the conference theme and one of the sub-themes. You will need to identify 3-4 speakers to participate in the roundtable session and give an indication of their inputs/presentation titles. Please consider inclusion when proposing the speakers, paying attention to how different regions are included. Speakers should have indicated willingness to participate. If successful, the roundtable will make up one of the parallel sessions. Parallel sessions are between 90 and 120 minutes.

Workshop abstract

This option allows you to propose a short workshop that will be run during the parallel sessions (for 90-120 minutes) or a longer workshop that would be run during the pre-conference agenda. The workshops can be theoretically, methodologically, or practice focused. The abstract should give a clear indication of the presenter(s), the target audience, and how the workshop will advance social development practice or thinking. Please also clearly indicate who the responsible person will be and the planned duration.

If you wish to propose other kinds of inputs such as author-meets-student workshops or book launches please contact us on icsd22ndconference@uj.ac.za.
