Online session formats

  • Paper presentations: Research-based presentations of 15 minutes (plus 10 minutes for questions and discussion). Research-based presentations are expected to be results-oriented and based on data collection and robust methodology.
  • Teaching-oriented presentations: 10‑minute presentations on teaching-related designs, development or experience followed by 5 minutes for questions and discussion.
  • Symposia: 90‑minute sessions, typically with 3–4 papers totalling a maximum of 60 minutes followed by a 30‑minute discussion moderated by a chairperson.
  • Workshops: A workshop (90 minutes) should actively involve participants in activities, discussions or exchange of knowledge and experiences.
  • Themed discussions: To discuss the intriguing conference questions and thus fully engage all conference participants, we are currently inviting speakers to moderate lively exchanges of perspectives. 


  • The EATAW board and the conference organizers reserve the right to hold certain session formats live online, and make others available on demand due to the technical restrictions of the online environments (i.e. limited number of concurrent sessions). Thus, authors may be asked to pre-record their presentations before the conference.
  • Earlier announced half-day meetings for special interest groups will not be held.
