Three different session formats that you can choose

  • Roundtable/Panel: this is a session format where the session organizer(s) present a position paper in advance of the conference and invite participants to discuss the topic in an open format.
  • Standard Session: this is your typical session that is composed of 10 or 25 minute papers presented by the participants.
  • Other: this is an open format that is at the discretion of the session organizer(s). The WSSE International Scientific Committee is encouraging creative new session formats to create a dynamic environment for sharing projects and ideas. We ask that the session organizer(s) include a short description of what the session format would look like. This could include sessions that have short presentations accompanied by posters or digital posters followed by an open discussion or the session could be focused on actively solving a digital archaeology problem. It is important to stress, that individuals participating in these alternative formats will still have a chance to submit a paper for inclusion in the published proceedings.

Each session organizer(s) has 500 words including

  • Session title
  • Author names, affiliations, and email addresses
  • 3 to 5 keywords.
  • Organizers of Other sessions are given 600 words so that they can describe the session format. Please indicate the corresponding author if there is more than one organizer.
  • The official language of the conference is English and all submissions should be in English. If English is not your first language, it is strongly suggested that you have a fluent English speaker review your abstract before submission.
