You should keep an eye on the important dates, not to miss the deadline to send us the abstract, in order to secure your work to be listed and presented in the programme book, and above all to get a chance to be invited to present your research in a form of a discussion triggering presentation. Download the template here, prepare the abstract, and send it, as an attached MS Word file to firstname.lastname@example.org, at latest on Jul. 1st, 2019.
POSTERS AND INTERACTIVITY
Interactivity and active participation are the HTCC key words. We invite all participants to present their ongoing research in the form of posters at the HTCC4. You will have top-notch experts right by your sides, with whom you will have an opportunity to discuss your work, ask questions, or just show off a bit – why not, you’ve deserved it after all. We have seen at the previous HTCCs, that this form of interactivity is highly appreciated by both students and teachers. In fact, very often we had to drag people away from the posters (by interrupting brutally vivid scientific conversations), in order to keep the workshop going according to the schedule.
Anyway, your poster should not exceed the standard 90 cm x 120 cm dimensions (w x h, respectively). And, that’s it, as far as the boring technical demands are considered. But, do make it scientifically sound, technically up-to-date and visually eye-catching.
DISCUSSION TRIGGERING PRESENTATIONS (DTPs)
However, our interactivity scheme goes beyond poster exhibition and random discussions. We will choose, among all abstracts which arrive on time, those which (in our opinion) deserve to be presented in a form of short oral communications. We shall encourage you to prepare these presentations as discussion triggers and not to hesitate to end them with a question mark. The people best placed to answer your questions will be in the room. How often do you have a chance to talk with the leading experts in your field?
SHORT INVITED PRESENTATIONS (SIPs)
We may feel that some of the submitted abstracts due to their quality literally scream to be presented in a more elaborate form. If so, we will contact the authors of these abstracts and propose to them to deliver a short invited presentation (SIP), typically 15′ or 20′ lecture with a short time reserved for questions and discussion.
