  • integrated combinations of media and/or content types

Contributions may be full length (5-10,000 words) or brief (2-4,000 words). Proposals for posters may be submitted too. Full presentations will be allowed 40 minutes, including at least 5 minutes for questions, while brief presentations should occupy a total of 20 minutes. As well as being available online to coincide with the Conference, the Proceedings will be published afterwards in a leading peer-reviewed journal.
