Please note that for panel discussions, there must be at least 2 paper presentations in each 90-minute session to open a discussion. A chairperson must lead the discussion. Discussants must be identified to oppose the presentations and participate in a discussion of the topic/papers after papers have been presented.

A panel discussion proposal should describe the need of the scientific discussion of the topic and its significance for education.

Recommended structure of the abstracts

  • Articulation of relevance to geographical education
  • Significance for theory, policy and practice
  • Theoretical framework, conceptual rationale
  • Research method and design (research questions, context, participants, data sources, sampling, procedure, ethical issues)
  • Clarity of results or preliminary results and conclusions
  • Embeddedness in relevant literature
  • References

For panel discussions, we need the following:

  • The theme/title and an abstract for the panel discussion session.
  • At least 2 extended abstracts of papers to be discussed, including: title, author(s), keywords
  • Name of the chairperson of the discussion session
  • Names of the discussant(s) (other than the chairperson)
