Presentation in the event

  • The workshop organizers will group a small number of papers that are similar in topic and/or methodology in parallel sessions.
  • One or more senior scholar familiar with the topic or method in question will chair the session.
  • Each presenter will have 10 min to make a brief presentation of his/her research. We strongly recommend that presentations be structured around four questions:
    • What is the research question?
    • Why is this question important?
    • How did you develop your answer?
    • Based on your results, what conclusions can you draw?
