Call for submissions

Call for submissions

The conference welcomes contributions in the form of oral or poster presentations on topics related to interdisciplinary teamwork skills, in workplaces or in higher education. The topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

  • Interdisciplinary teams in different settings
  • Collaborative learning and group work in higher education, e.g. facilitation of groups, student learning, student assessement, group assignment and group dynamics.
  • Entrepreneurial skills and mind set

Oral presentations and symposia

An oral presentation can be either research projects or experience report. An experience report is a firsthand description of challenges faced, approaches taken, observations and reflections, including thought-provoking ideas. The proposal should describe in more detail your experience related to teaching student groups or working in or with interdisciplinary teams in other settings.

We welcome both short presentations (10 minutes) and longer presentations (20 minutes). Please specify in your abstract what you prefer. 

A symposium consists of one 75 or 90 minute conference sessions organised by the submitters. It allows several presentations on the same topic and include a minimum of 3 presentations per session. 

Poster presentations

The poster can address new research ideas, research that is in an early state, teaching or worklife experiences, capable to trigger discussions and collaborations, to get feedback or validate work in different states. Accepted posters will be exhibited during the whole conference and presented during the conference poster session. The poster format is A0 (841mm x 1189mm)

Guidelines for submission

The abstracts for both presentation and poster should not exceed 400 words. For symposia the maximum word limit is per presentation in the symposium. All submissions will be evaluated by at least two members of the program committee, mostly based on relevance to the conference theme, potential for stimulating discussion, and presentation quality. 


Deadline for submission was March 31 2018.
