ICED11 will operate with five session types, all of which will become integrated parts of the conference programme.
These sessions will consist of keynote papers from leading speakers from industry, academia and authorities. Plenary sessions will act as a daily focal point for all of the conference delegates, and will present leading thoughts, new ideas and visions.
Presentation sessions (two types)
Authors of accepted papers are required to present their paper to the community. There are two forms of presentation at ICED11: Podium Presentations and Discussion Presentations. All accepted papers have identical requirements and will be published in the same fashion at full length in the proceedings. The difference between the two presentation formats is the ratio of discussion and presentation time, as follows:
- Podium sessions - Instructions for podium session presenters and chairs
In podium presentation sessions, each presentation will be allocated 20 minutes for presentation and discussion. There will be 4 presentations per session, which will be grouped by theme.
- Discussion sessions - Instructions for discussion session presenters and chairs
These sessions are designed to provoke lively and deep thematic discussions. Discussion sessions will consist of between 5 and 7 presentations, where speakers will be asked to prepare a short (5 minute) pitch, which will be followed by 60 minutes extensive discussion. It is the intent of these sessions to further the exchange between researchers with similar interests. The format should allow for an unprecedented amount of interaction and learning together with the other presenters. Facilitated by skilled chairmen!
These sessions will be hosted by the Design Society’s Special Interest Groups, covering a broad range of research themes. Workshops bring together users and experts in interactive, half-day sessions, elaborating on specific topics. Workshop coordinators may invite selected presentations and demonstrations in order to stimulate the debate as well as to propose any format of delivery that inspires interaction. Workshop participants will receive all the workshop contributions prior to the conference in order to stimulate a discussion on the workshop.
All conference participants are invited to share their ideas, work, and research results with the ICED11 community, in the form of a poster. These posters will provide the backdrop for the coffee breaks, where authors can attract the attention of potential collaborators. This offer should be of particular interest to young researchers and to larger research groups/funded research projects. Although we do not provide templates or guidelines for your posters, we recommend DIN-A0 size and require that you register your poster, so that we can provide space for you.
