2017 International Science of Learning Conference

Talks and Posters


Researchers have the opportunity to share and discuss their work by submitting an abstract outlining their research for their presentation. Presentations are either by a 20-min Talk scheduled by theme into one of the Talk Sessions, or by Poster during the main Poster Session of the conference.

Abstract submissions for presentations closed on the 30th June.

Oral Presentations

Oral presentations provide the opportunity to present original work related to the Science of Learning in one of the Talk Sessions.

  • Oral presentations will have 20-minute time slots. The conference organizers will review and select abstracts for oral presentation and will group into sessions by theme. Talks will be a 15-min presentation followed by time for questions from the audience.
  • Presenters will typically use PowerPoint or other slide presentations. It is not necessary that you have a written paper to present.

Poster Presentations

The Poster Sessions provide an interactive forum for authors to present and discuss their work.

  • Presenters will stand by their posters for presentation and discussion during the main Poster Session scheduled in the conference program, and posters will remain on display from 10am on the first day until the close of the conference.
  • Presenters are encouraged to bring 1-page handouts to accompany their posters.

The Poster Session is one of the core events of the 2017 International Science of Learning Conference and offers a platform to see and discuss achievements, ideas and developments face-to-face. The posters will remain on display for the duration of the conference.

Posters should be in portrait orientation. The maximum size is 130cm (height) x 90cm (width), with the standard size of A0 acceptable. All accepted posters must be put up for display in their allocated space by presenters before 10am on Monday 18 September (see Registration Desk for assistance).
