EARLI 2015


Round table submission

A proposal for a round table should consist of an abstract (300 words at maximum) and an extended summary (1000 words at maximum, including references). Your proposal will be accepted, rejected or offered an alternative presentation format. The decision will be e-mailed to you by January 30th 2015.

When your proposal is accepted as a round table, you are requested to create a handout and submit it along with an updated abstract (300 words) by April 1st 2015. This abstract will be published in the conference proceedings.

After that you will receive feedback on your handout by a peer who participates in the 19th JURE Conference. Furthermore, you will also be requested to give feedback on a handout yourself. The feedback procedure is meant as an opportunity for improvement, not for a summative assessment (as the proposal has already been accepted).

Following a successful submission, you will receive a confirmation e-mail. If you decide not to participate in the conference, please inform us at jure2015.limassol@gmail.com as soon as possible, since participants are matched to each other for peer feedback.

During the conference, each round table session will consist of 2 or 3 conceptually linked projects. At the conference, each presenter has 5 minutes to introduce his/her project and raise one or two open questions. 25 minutes are intended for discussion. Presenters should prepare handouts for the other participants, but no PowerPoint presentation.

Round table guidelines


To make it easier for the participants to take part in the discussion, you have to make a hand-out of your research.

•    Format: ISO A4, one-sided
•    Title: The shortest but still informative summary of the roundtable presentation.
•    Authors: List the name(s) of the author(s) (the presenting author is listed as the first author), affiliation, contact address(es), and country. [Please omit this info when submitting your handout for the second phase of review, since a double-blind review process will be followed!]
•    Problem statement: The issues that you come across in your research and want to present to your audience. Depending on the issues raised, certain illustrations, graphs or numbers might be added to clarify the issues at hand.
•    Round-table questions: One or two specific questions (relevant to your study) you want to ask the audience about the issues you have.
Handouts are intended to support the short five-minute presentation, as well as support the discussion which follows. It should not be very lengthy, as reading a full page will take too long. Ideally, a new reader should be able to read the handout in one or two minutes and be able to take part in the discussion. To reach this aim, make it clear, structured, concise, and attractive. Avoid long texts and use diagrams, graphs and/or tables to visualize your information effectively. Make sure you bring enough handouts; there may be people who do not attend your session but who may still be interested in it.


***Important Note***
When submitting your poster, your name SHOULD NOT be stated in the document so that a double blind review process is possible.
