Registration - DNC3-ALED "Knowledge and power in a polycentric world: discourses across languages, cultures and space"


Guidelines for abstracts and preliminary versions of papers

DNC3-ALED includes three formats:

  1. Individual paper presentations (20 minutes presentation plus 10 minutes discussion)
  2. Panel sessions (usually 60 - 90 minutes on one theme). We also welcome suggestions for roundtables, workshops or more unconventional panel presentations. Please specify the form in your abstract.
  3. An ad-hoc “unconference” will be organized on one afternoon. The sessions are not planned in advance. Instead, all participants will have the opportunity to put sessions on the agenda during the congress itself. Participants may suggest topics, methods, theories, questions, problems, etc. No preparation necessary. For more information about the unconference format, see: http://unconference.net/unconferencing-how-to-prepare-to-attend-an-unconference

Abstracts of no more than 250 words should be submitted through the conference registration tool by September 30th 2018.

You can update your registration at a later point in time with your login details and accepted contributors will need to upload their preliminary paper by the 31st of July 2019. Your registration for DNC3-ALED will not be complete until you have received a confirmation email upon payment of the registration fee.
