Oral Presentation submission
Oral presentations are 25 minutes in duration (except where they are part of a Symposium, in which case 10-15 minutes) and should introduce an original theory, concept, method, approach, case study or work in progress related to one or more of the conference themes. 

Workshop submission
A workshop is an interactive session 90 minutes in duration with hands-on activities and/or audience participation. It should introduce one or more new concepts, methodologies or approaches and should have clear intended outcomes for participants. It should be accompanied by additional materials such as hand-outs and would usually have more than one facilitator to enhance engagement. 

Symposium submission
A Symposium (duration 90 minutes) consists of a number (4-5) of short papers (10-15 minutes) clustered around one or more of the conference themes and designed to stimulate discussion and debate. One member should act as Symposium Chair and submit both this form as the "master" Symposium submission accompanied by an Oral Presentation submission form for each of the short papers in the symposium. The Symposium description should state clearly how discussion will be facilitated. 

Demonstration submission
A demonstration should introduce a new tool, technique, resource or methodology. Each demonstration will be 20-25 minutes duration with 5-10 minutes discussion and will form part of a 90 minute demonstration session
