CALL FOR INDIVIDUAL PAPER ABSTRACTS AND SPECIAL SESSION/WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

Abstracts, symposiums and roundtables are welcome.

An author may co-author any number of submissions but, as presenting author, may submit a maximum of 2 abstracts.

 

MEETING FORMAT

We welcome abstracts and presentations in one of the following formats:

  • Poster Presentation/Poster Platform Presentations Poster sessions will be grouped by “areas” and “topics”.
  • Oral Presentation will be grouped by “areas” and “topics” and assigned a session chair by the Scientific Committee. Each oral presentation should take 15 minutes, followed by 5 minutes for audience questions and comments.

For posters and oral presentations, submit an abstract and choose between the areas and topics. You will have to give additional precisions on the significance of your contribution to the IDRIM field and on the nature of expected contributions. 

  • Symposia address a particular subject of interest through a multidisciplinary format. Symposium proposals are submitted as such, and are not organized by the scientific Committee. Generally, symposia follow the same format as the oral presentations and should be limited to one 1½-hour session to the extent possible. Preference will be given by the Scientific Committee to symposium proposals that truly reflect several Disaster risks-related disciplines.
  • Roundtable addresses a high-visibility topic of special interest in a 90-minute panel discussion format. The organizer submits an abstract that describes the topic and what the audience should expect to gain from the discussion. The organizer also lists the moderator and panelists, and their emails.
