A paper proposal is an abstract of 200-300 words giving the necessary information about your research project: the problem formulation, methodology, theoretical framework, and results. Deadline for submission of an abstract is 1st March 2012. Notification of acceptance will be given 30th March 2012.
If your paper proposal is accepted, you are expected to submit a full length paper at the latest 27th April 2012. A full length paper has a maximum of 7000 words (abstract and references included). This paper will be peer reviewed for a possible inclusion in a conference anthology.
A poster proposal is an abstract of approximately 100 words and must tell about the theme of your intended poster presentation. Deadline for proposal (abstract) is 1. March. The poster will be produced later, when you know if your poster proposal has been accepted or not. Notification of acceptance will be given 30. March. Final poster deadline: 27. April.
When a poster has been accepted, the presenter will be given an electronic address to which the file should be sent for printing. NAFOL will cover the printing costs. Poster format: A0 (841 × 1189mm). File format: PDF. Accepted posters will be displayed in the conference hall area.
Criterions: The jury will make the choice based on visual attraction, the substance content balanced between text presentation and graphic/visual communication, appealing structure, readability, formal demands, overall appearance, as well as more formal demands like use of references and possibly relevant graphics or visual effects. Appearance is not an exactly defined entity, but informed by aesthetic choices, humor or appeal to cultural references.
NEW information! The organizing committee of the NAFOL conference 15th May 2012 invites you to participate in a creative competition in research communication by poster presentations. Read more
Deadline for submitting a paper proposal elapsed 1th March. You are still welcome to register as participant of the conference.
