Abstracts should be a maximum of 300 words and explain both aims and outcomes, as well as how the work addresses a theme of the conference. We invite submission of abstracts of the following presentation types:

a) Pecha Kucha

These are presentations involving 20 images, and oral presentation for 20 seconds per image, giving a total of 6 minutes 40 seconds. This could be a teaching case study, an example of work in progress or another idea related to themes of the conference. Moving pictures offers a creative alternative to the standard conference format for those with a creative approach. Examples can be found here.
Pecha Kucha is devised and shared by Klein Dytham Architecture. ECE Conference has permission to run a Pecha Kucha event.

b) Workshops (60 minutes)

Workshops must be activity based, involving participation from the audience. The abstract should discuss how the audience will be involved. A workshop is not a presentation plus a discussion. Workshops will be allocated a session of up to 60 minutes.

c) Demonstrations 

Demonstrations should enable participants to engage with practical examples, and may or may not be. The abstract should indicate the length of time and any other resources needed, and how the work will be demonstrated to the audience.

d) Performance (time to be negotiated) 

Performance may include art exhibition, installations, music or acting. The abstract should clearly state how the audience will be engaged. The abstract should include the time required, and any special requirements for space, equipment or seating arrangements.

e) Posters

Posters will be limited to a maximum size of a single A0 sheet, which may be landscape or portrait. There will be timetabled sessions within the conference programme for delegates to view the posters and to engage in discussion with the authors, which the author should be available for. The abstract should include the aims and outcomes, together with how the topic meets one of the conference themes.
