Guidelines for submission of paper proposals
Proposals are invited for full papers only. Paper proposals should be sent as an attached file [either in *.doc, *.docx, or *.pdf format]. They should not exceed one A4 or 1000 words; they must include a title and keywords, but not the author/s name/s, affiliation or institution/s.
Please send in a separate sheet your professional/personal data (name, institutional affiliation, phone, fax and mail). All abstracts for paper proposals must be submitted by July 21st 2019 to the following email addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
All paper proposals will be blind reviewed by the scientific committee. Acceptance will be confirmed by August 25th 2019. Paper presentations must not exceed 20 minutes in time length. The meeting presentations will be organised based on the Open Space method and will include flow sessions and learning cafés. Learning café is a simple, effective, and flexible format for hosting large group dialogue. Each flow session will have 4 to 6 cafés and participants can visit all of them in one session. The café hosts will share their ideas with all the participants. The learning café hosts have 20 minutes maximum for presenting their papers and the same amount of time for a round-table discussion with participants. Then they will receive new participants in their café, they will present their papers again and hear the next round of participants’ thoughts. Learning café hosts will keep notes from the discussion for later on conclusions. They may also use handouts, posters (highly advised) or other presentation techniques in the café e.g. computers, tablets, photos, i-Pads etc. They can bring their handouts and/or posters with them to the event or ask from the organizers to produce them.
Ad-hoc plenary presentations will also be organised. These will have as a theme „Working with diverse learning groups“ and they will be provided by a small number of selected participants who will be able to present their teaching, learning and/or research experience in a narrative and/or interactive format by using a co-opeartive approach. Essentialy these presentations will focus on successful learning experiences in a diverse learning context. Colleagues who are interested in presenting their work in the plenary sessions are requested to submit separately to their paper proposals, an A4 page describing their narrative or story, or a relevant video.
 A publication with a selected number of papers will follow. All participants will be asked to submit a full paper (5000 words maximum) by the end of December 2019. All submitted papers will be peer reviewed. 15 papers will be selected for publication in an edited Volume.
