Dear EGEAns, it’s that time of the year again… the Open Calls for Scientific Program at AC are starting!

And the scientific program will be prepared in cooperation with Scientific Committee as usual!

 

ARE YOU READY? … HERE WE GO!

 

 

In this announcement you can find information about Scientific Symposium, Poster Session and Panel Debate… all in one! Be active, be scientific and send us your application!

1) Scientific Symposium

As usual, in this part of program you have the opportunity to present results of your achievements, research and other scientific reports or to tell us about the interesting projects in which you participated.

 

This year we can offer our speakers 6 FIXED PLACES. We don’t want to have our speakers in hurry, so this time every presenter will have maximum 40 MINUTES for their appearance (25-30 min for a presentation and 10 min for a short discussion)! After the Congress you will be asked to write a short article about your presentation to our Scientific Report so please count with it.

 

In case you are interested, your application should include:

  • Your full name
  • Your Entity
  • Your university / research institution and field of study
  • Your EGEA nickname (on the website)
  • Your email address
  • Your motivation (around 5 sentences)
  • Abstract (max. 350-500 words)

 

Open Call for this activity is prolonged till 14. April 2019 23:59 CET!

The applications (in PDF or DOC/DOCX format) should be send to SciComm to: science@egea.eu and be sure to write in the subject for which session are you applying 😊 … and don’t forget to register for Annual Congress afterwards!

 

2) Poster Session

In case you don’t feel comfortable in front of a big audience, the Poster Session is the scientific session for you! We offer 4 FIXED PLACES and during this one-hour long session will each poster presenter have 10 minutes time to introduce their poster… later on a casual discussion in World Cafe Style will follow. 😊 And of course after the congress we will ask you to write a short description/article or a smaller poster to our Scientific Report (not decided yet), but we will let you know soon enough, don’t worry.

 

In your application, you should include:

  • Your full name
  • Your Entity
  • Your university / research institution and field of study
  • Your EGEA nickname (on the website)
  • Your email address
  • Your motivation (max. 5 sentences)
  • Abstract (max. 250-500 words)
  • Draft of your poster (A1 size) without your name (PDF File)

 

Open Call for this activity is prolonged till 14. April 2019 23:59 CET!

The applications (in PDF or DOC/DOCX format) should be send to SciComm to: science@egea.eu and be sure you write in the subject for which session are you applying 😊 … and don’t forget to register for Annual Congress afterwards!

 

Note: The applications for SS and PS will be judged anonymously by the JURY that will consist of independent experts, SciComm members and AC Scientific Coordinators. Happy presenters will be announced latest in 2 weeks after the end if the open call.

 

3) Panel Debate

There will be a small difference from the last year. We will be holding two or three panel debates at the same time, so everyone can join the topic which they like and be discussing in smaller groups without any fear. This should be also more comfortable for the debaters… We hope that also the audience will be involved and that the debaters will work as an experts for the topics, so the debate can be very open.

 

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR? Exactly 6 people who will get fixed places!

 

Are you communicative and have good arguments? Don’t hesitate and apply!

 

In your VIDEO application you should include:

  • introduction about yourself
  • motivation for the debate
  • the topic/topics that you would like to discuss, you are interested in
  • and your previous experiences with the topics you suggest.

 

What does it mean? We want from you 2-3 minutes long video where you speak about yourself, your experiences and also about the topics you would like to discuss.  The only thing you have to follow is the topic of the congress Forgotten Homeland: Realize your roots and related topics in social or physical geography, connected to migration, borders, peripheral areas etc.

 

From your ideas we will pick the best and most suitable topics and divide you into groups based on your preferences, but of course in the end we will check once more if you are willing to talk about the chosen topic. So you will know from the beginning for which topic you have to prepare!

 

Open Call for this activity is prolonged till 14.April 2019 23:59 CET!

The applications should be send to our email: ac2019@egea.eu and be sure you write the appropriate subject 😊. In the email send us a LINK to your video (you can use for example Google Drive)! …and don’t forget to register for Annual Congress afterwards!
