xmca poster session in Seville 2005
Mike Cole and I in an off-list discussion came up with the idea of
presenting a poster session on the xmca discussion list at the ISCAR
Congress in Seville, Spain, September 20-24, 2005. A specific
motivation for doing this is that Mike is planning to launch another
internet xmca course on CHAT that fall, and a poster session might help
encourage students and scholars around the world to
The information below is from
, which now has up to date information about the congress (check it out).
Anyone interested in commenting, sharing ideas, helping, writing, etc. in creating a proposal for an xmca poster session, participating in it at the congress, etc. please contact Mike, me, or post your thoughts here on the discussion list. What should this poster presentation look like? What should it emphasize? Should all the posters be made in equilateral triangles? [Just kidding :-)) ]
Call for proposals
The program committee invites researches to send proposals that correspond to one of the congress themes.
A proposal can be submitted for:
- a paper that corresponds to one of the congress themes or subthemes.
- a poster that corresponds to one of the (sub) themes of the congress.
- a symposium that corresponds to one of the (sub) themes of the congress.
All papers will be organised in symposium sessions.
A symposium is allotted one hour and a half or two hours and contains 3 or 4 paper presentations followed by 45 minutes of plenary discussion. The organisers strongly encourage participants to propose new and interactive symposium formats: in addition to the regular paper symposium, one could also think about organising a poster symposium, an interactive symposium (papers have to be distributed and studied before participation), a point-counterpoint symposium (two radically opposite papers are presented and discussed). The program will promote regional meetings for different ISCAR sections.
All paper proposals must include: 1) title of paper, 2) author´s name, 3) mailing address, 4) e-mail address, 5) a 400-500 word summary (max), 6) a reference to one of the congress themes/topics.
All symposium proposals must include: 1) title of symposium, and a indication of the format chosen 2) title of papers, 3) name and address information (mail addresses and e-mail) of organisers and participants, 4) a 400-500 word summary (max) of each paper, and 5) a 250 word description (max) of the theme of the symposium clarifying the relation of the symposium to the congress theme or to one of its subthemes.
All singular poster proposals must include: 1) title of poster, 2) author´s name, 3) mailing address, 4) e-mail address, 5) a 400-500 word summary (max).
