PCE 2020 Banner_PRIMARY.jpg


Kia ora koutou,

We warmly invite you to contribute to the success of PCE2020 by offering a brief report, lecture, panel, workshop or poster presentation. We aim to stimulate and deepen discussion around the conference theme of “Tihei mauri ora: Contact, culture, and context”. To assist with this, we ask that when you prepare your abstract, you specifically address one or more of these conference themes.

Please note that the deadline for the first call for abstracts is Friday 1st November to coincide with the Super Early Bird registration. There will be a further call announced later in the year. Please also note that we are unable to confirm your contribution without your prior conference registration.

Ngā mihi,

Brian Rodgers
Chair of the Scientific Committee

Forms of presentation

Brief report: 20 min.: Short presentations of max. 20 minutes including feedback. These brief individual reports are intended to succinctly deliver a focused presentation with an opportunity for feedback from participants but minimal discussion. This may include such things as research proposals, work-in-progress reports, summary of findings, brief examples from practice, or focused theoretical papers.

Lecture: 50 min.: Presentations of max. 50 minutes including discussion. These individual lectures provide an opportunity to engage in more depth around a topic and include time for discussion with participants. They may be philosophical, theoretical, clinical, research-based or practical in character and may include such things as case studies, research reports or more theoretical presentations.

Panel: 50 or 90 min.: Collaborative presentation by two or more authors for either 50 or 90 minutes. Panel presentations and discussions allow a variety of activities and may include such things as presentation by a research group, comparison of different perspectives or approaches, colloquium discussion among colleagues about complementary or controversial aspects of practice or theory. Please register under a lead author with colleagues as co-authors under one heading.

Workshop: 90 or 120 min.: Interactive workshop with participation by the audience for either 90 minutes or 2 hours. Workshops may include a short presentation to introduce the topic but should focus on being an interactive experience with participants. This may include such things as experiential workshops, demonstrations of practice, or an open space to dialogue around a topic.

Poster Presentation: Contributions about empirical, conceptual, theoretical and methodological research may be presented by posters. Posters should have a maximum size of DIN A0 (length 118.9 cm x width 84.1 cm), portrait format. Poster presentations will take place in public areas of the conference venue during the entire conference. During presentations slots the poster authors will be available for questions and discussions in front of their posters.
